  • The Importance Of Communication In Close Relationships

    valued is much different than one in which someone feels they have absolutely no value. This week, I’ve learned that I have a variety of different relationships, each with their own communication climate.

  • Men Stereotypes

    This week in chapter four I really liked the section about dominance and how men are perceived to dominate more than women. I never thought about the stereotype of women interrupting more than men, but in reality it’s men who interrupt more especially if it involves him attaining more power when he interrupts.

  • Difference Between Male And Male Conversation

    In this case study we can see that men would interrupt in a more frequent rate. Even in 30 minutes time, they would interrupt at least 40 times. As men always get bored of one topic, men like changing from topic to topic. One would interrupt when he want to change to another topic. For example, he would say, “Don’t talk about this, shall we talk about other things. In this way, interruption occurs more frequently. One reason for this phenomenon is that men are…
