Nonverbal Behaviors and Initial Impressions of Trustworthiness in Teacher-Supervisor Relationships.
Chamberlin, Carla R.
Communication Education, v49 n4 p352-63 Oct 2000
Investigates the relationship between nonverbal behaviors of immediacy and dominance on teachers' initial impressions of trust toward a supervisor. Notes that supervisor immediacy resulted in higher perceptions of trust than supervisor dominance, and immediacy also rated higher on measures of appropriateness and effectiveness than dominance. Concludes that teachers' perceptions of trust were highly correlated with measures of appropriateness and effectiveness. (SG)
