Human Communication (a branch of communication research) is a theory dedicated to study and understand how people communicate ; interpersonal, intrapersonal , group and cross cultural.Intrapersonal ; you and yourself
Interpersonal; you and your friend
Group; you and your friends
Cross Cultural; Well, you and someone from dissimilar cultural background.
So, why am I writing this? Because I have my class later in afternoon and it appears that I haven't updated my blog since last week. Excuse my reason, let's continue.
Construct, in communication study is a series of experience that eventually will retain a meaning for long time in our memory. Like, you've a toothache after lollipops, and you begin an intrapersonal conversation " Oh this bad toothache, I don't wanna have lollipop ever again!"
So you just made a construct ; lollipop isn't for me. (unless it is an anti-germ lollipop!)
Personal Construct theory is one of the foundation for Human Communication, explains how we create construct to understand the world. A person-centered should know how to interact and focus on the individual. Let me drag a simple example, do you think a doctor is a person-centered? A person-centered doctor should counteracts his language and the patients' understanding.
Or, my best example should be the latest TV3 sinari lebaran ads. Why we want to greet Aidil Fitri with flying beca and so and so. This is a religious festival. I don't think the maker has a high person-centered. He reconstruct a wrong image of 'colorful' Malaysia. Malaysia blessed with perfect cultures, and different races have their own traditional (or religious) festival. So let them be! We shouldn't be a melting pot where everything goes inside and blended.
Look at a potpourri. Colorful but harmony (and scented too!)
