When starting a new job, Jon is scared to meet his new co-workers. Since coming into the office, Jon hasn’t been introduced to a single person who doesn’t like him, until Brandon. Brandon doesn’t participate in the small talk and goes back to his office. Jon negatively concludes that since Brandon doesn’t talk to him, he doesn’t like him. However; Brandon does like Jon, he was just having a hectic morning. Interpersonal communication is used daily throughout conversations. Whether its face-to-face, over the phone or subconsciously. This method of communication plays into Attribution Theory, the psychological phenomenon for explaining how people perceive others.Interpersonal communication is the process by which people exchange feelings, information, and meanings through verbal and non-verbal messages. These messages can use face-to-face communication or technology. Interpersonal communication is not solely about what is said, but how it is said. Non-verbal messages can be communicated through tone of voice, facial expressions, gestures, and body language. This can be seen when two or more people are in the same place and are aware of each other’s presence; although no one is talking, communication is taking place, no matter how unintentional. Without speech, an observer mat be using cues of how the person across from them is sitting, their facial expression, and how they dress to form an impression of the other’s personality and intentions. Although no verbal communication took place, people perceive messages though such forms of non-verbal communication.
