Dyadic Perception of Communicator Style: Replication, Confirmation, and Theory.
Miller, Larry D.
An experimentl was designed to replicate and confirm previous research findings which suggest that the way persons communicate is related to their perceptions of communication behavior. The experiment was successful. Subjects with low Communicator Style Measure (CSM) scores do not report perceiving a significant difference. Three raters evaluated the video taped interactions and confirm that a significant difference exists between the way in which low and high CSM scorers communicate. Two potential explanations are posited and discussed: social desirability and perceptual deficiency. Lastly, the rudimentary elements of a theory of communicator style are reviewed and recommendations for research offered. (Author/RB)
