Personality and interpersonal communication
Sage Publications, May 1, 1987 - Family & Relationships - 351 pages
Should studies of personality be central to communication research? Should the usefulness of the individual differences approach to interpersonal communication be questioned? McCroskey and Daly - while not negating the value of situational research - stress the importance of communication research which focuses on individual differences, particularly personality-type differences. This comprehensive and in-depth study will show those who tend to overestimate the influence of the situation that the person is also a critical part of the communication equation.
