What is meant by interpersonal communication?
Definition
o The production (how we send messages) and processing (do
you understand what the person is communicating to you, do
you comprehend what they are saying) of verbal and
nonverbal messages between two or a few persons
Interpersonal communication should be between two
people
The linear model (one-way)
o How we first started thinking of communication and how
people start sending messages to each other
o Sender message (what you are saying) channel (means of
communication) receiver
o Problems: too simplistic, leaves out other important elements
(like what is the receiver doing while sender is
communicating, AKA feedback)
Feedback
o Receivers sending something back to sender to let them know
if they are paying attention, or if they don’t understand, etc.
o We are both senders and receivers at the exact same time

o Anything that prevents message from being understood by
the receiver

Physical (any noise part of the environment, much less
under our control)
Psychological (noise that comes from distractions in our
minds, much more under our control)
Transactional model
o Source message/feedback receiver
CONTEXT (communicating with professor is different
than communicating with)
o Receiver message/feedback source
ENVIRONMENT (communicating at a classroom would
be different than communicating at a party)
Elements that define interpersonal communication
Intentionality
o Has to be a reason/purpose/intent for why you are
communicating
o Controversial
Shared information
o Message that you communicate to another person has to be
understood
o May be initially misunderstood but will eventually get to some
level of mutual understanding
Transmission
o Message has to be transmitted someway, cannot stay in your
head (which is intrapersonal rather than interpersonal)
Bond
o Relationship between the two people (doesn’t have to be
romantic, best friends, but can be acquaintances, have to be
at least able to identify that acknowledgement exists)
History of interpersonal communication
Ideas about interpersonal communication have existed since the
early 1900s
