Reflected Appraisalprocess whereby our self-concept is influenced by how we think other sees us. Social Penetration Theorytheory that predicts as relationship develops, communication increases in breadth and depth Uncertainty Reduction TheoryReduce uncertainties about othersVerbal communication: as the verbal communication between strangers increases, the level of uncertainty decreases, and, as a result, verbal communication increases.
Nonverbal warmth: Refers to positive signs in a persons gestures and body language that indicate a willingness to communicate or form a relationship.
Information seeking: Occurs when individuals wish to know more about each other. Information can be obtained passively through observation or interactively through conversation.
Self-disclosure: Individuals willingly divulge information about themselves to reduce uncertainty in the other person, thus encouraging them to communicate openly.
Reciprocity: Individuals interested in reducing uncertainty or starting a relationship will reciprocate uncertainty-reducing behaviour, such as asking questions. The higher the uncertainty between individuals, the more reciprocity a person can expect.
Similarity: Individuals who are alike or share interests will feel less uncertain about each other and achieve communication intimacy more quickly. Dissimilar individuals experience higher levels of uncertainty.
Liking: Feelings of approval and preference between individuals likewise speed up the uncertainty-reduction process. Feelings of dislike discourage relationship formation.
