Sequential Analysis of Visual and Verbal Behavior During Dyadic Conversation.
Stokes, Neil A., III; Dabbs, James M., Jr.
The etiological approach to psychological research is discussed, particularly regarding research on visual and vocal behavior. Thirty-four adult female dyads discussed topics on which they agreed and on which they disagreed. Each subject's looking and talking was recorded by observers on a computer in a time frame data structure. Data were analyzed by the program JOINT, which computed simple and transitional probabilities for the 16 mutually exclusive and exhaustive states of talking and looking. The four most common states are examined, along with transitions involving the remaining states that could represent floor changes between the speakers. Additional data analysis and research applications are suggested. (Author)
