Why is perception a complex process?
We perceive so many things that it is difficult to focus on and process all of our perceptions. Also, perception involves several steps. If any single step does not occur, the entire process can be ruined.
Explain the three steps you can take to increase perceptual accuracy.
1. Increase awareness. This means that you take the time to increase your awareness of how and what you perceive.
2. Avoid stereotypes. This means you cannot assume your stereotypical beliefs are true; you have to work to avoid and overcome stereotypes.
3. Use direct and indirect perception checking. You have to continue to observe, ask questions about your perceptions or do a combination of both in order to ensure your perceptions are accurate.
What is self-disclosure?
Voluntarily sharing information about yourself, that others could not find out unless you told them.
How does reciprocity affect disclosure?
Because you should only disclose if your communication partner is also disclosing, reciprocity can help you to decide how much and when to self-disclose during communication.
How does self-esteem affect one's ability to communicate?
Someone who has a high self-esteem is more likely to choose to communicate, and communicate effectively, than someone who has a low self-esteem. Someone with a low self-esteem is more likely to minimize or avoid communication.
What is the difference between indirect perception checking and direct perception checking?
Indirect perception checking does not involve asking questions; direct perception checking requires you to ask questions to clarify your perceptions.
Describe a situation in which you have used direct perception checking.
Answers will vary, but should demonstrate an understanding that direct perception checking involves asking questions about perceptions. (EX - Asking a friend why they are excited)
Which of the following are the types of rules that communication follows?
Why is self-disclosure important in communication?
Self-disclosure builds positive, trusting relationships and encourages reciprocal disclosure.
Explain how you would effectively communicate instructions to a 5 year old.
You would likely use simple words as well as short sentences and a clear tone. You might incorporate non-verbal communication, such as gestures to demonstrate what you want the child to do.

Why is getting a meeting request from a friend different from receiving one from an individual's boss?
This is because the relationship dimension of the request would be different. A meeting request boss implies that this discussion would be professional and work-related. While a meeting request from a friend would be more casual.
