Sample text

I–Thou relationships are not common, because we can’t afford to reveal ourselves totally to everyone all the time. Thus, I–Thou relationships and the communication in them are rare and special. Features of Interpersonal Communication Building on Buber’s poetic description, we can define interpersonal communication as selective, systemic, unique, processual (is an ongoing process) transactions that allow people to reflect and build personal knowledge of one another and create shared meanings. We’ll discuss the key terms in this definition so that we have a common understanding of interpersonal communication.

At this school, I get treated like a number a lot of the time. When I go to see my adviser, he asks what my identification number is—not what my name is. Most of my professors don’t know my name. In high school, all the teachers called on us by name. It felt more human there. Sometimes I feel like an “it” on this campus. JASON I–You Communication The second level Buber identified is I–You communica- tion, which accounts for the majority of our interactions. People acknowledge one another as more than objects, but they don’t fully engage each other as unique individuals.

All these contexts affect their interaction and its meaning. Because interpersonal communication is systemic, situation, time, people, culture, personal histories, and so forth interact to affect meanings. We can’t just add up the various parts of a system to understand their impact on communication. Instead, we have to recognize that all parts of a system interact; each part affects all others. In other words, elements of communication systems are interdependent; each element is tied to all the other elements.
