Situations That Lead to Disqualification.
Bavelas, Janet Beavin
Human Communication Research, v9 n2 p130-45 Win 1983
Tested, in five hypothetical paper-and-pencil experiments, subjects' use of disqualification (ambiguous, indirect, or evasive massages). Concluded that a disqualification is not a failed communication, but rather a reasonable response to an impossible situation, one that permits the communicator to leave the field gracefully. (PD)
