Theories of the communication cycle and group formation
Michael Argyle (1972) – The communication Cycle
Argyle believed that interpersonal communication was like learning to drive, a skill that could be developed. It involves building an understanding of listening, observing and reflecting on what another person may try to communicate. The communication cycle could be:
Ideas occur – You have an Idea to communicate.
Message coded –You consider the options of communicating your idea and put your thoughts into words or sign language etc.
Message sent – You convey your message in a way that you might find more comfortable.
