Communication and Type A Coronary-Prone Behavior: A Study of Perception and Message Construction in Compliance-Gaining Situations.
Tardy, Charles H.; And Others
To explore the impact of communication styles on physiological health, coronary-prone Type A and low-stress Type B subjects were administered two surveys testing reactions to hypothetical, stressful situations. While not revealing a correlation between Type A behavior and specific perceptions of, or strategies for, dealing with compliance-gaining situations, the studies did suggest profitable directions for future research. Further study is needed, for example, both on the characteristics of Type A communication and on the impact of Type A behavior on interpersonal relations. (Materials used in the study are appended.)
