Effects of the Characteristics of Communication to the Communication Process
Communication is very important for all being, animal and humans. We use our own skill language to communicate with one another, because no one can survive without communicating. The purpose of communication is to convey one's belief, ideas, thoughts or needs with clarity so as to reach a consensus or a mutually acceptable solution. There are 7 Cs of communication; Completeness, Conciseness, Consideration, Concrete, Courtesy, Clearness and Correctness.
So, first we must explain the communication of Completeness, which the receiver gets all the information need to process the message and take action. Example: "You haven't completed the task that I set you". Conciseness is you stick to the point and keep it brief. Example: 'We were unable to send the goods in time because the truckers strike". Consideration is using argumentation and examples which are relevant to the experience. Example: "Stepping into the shoes of others". Concreteness it helps your audience gain an overview of the broader picture. Example: " When a young girl catches a fish and tells his friends about the event she uses her hands, positive open in new window and words to describe the size of the fish". Courtesy means respecting the receiver’s culture, values and beliefs. Example: " When you shake hands politely when you meet someone and say please and thank you". Clearness, the easier it gets for the receiver to decode it according to your original intent. Example: " The air at the top of a mountain on a clear day. The last but not a least Correctness, formal errors might affect the clarity of your message, trigger ambiguity and raise doubt. Example: " She doubted the correctness of the information".
I conclude that communication helps us to coordinate the vital functions of our lives. We typically use or exchange communication through using signals, such as facial expression, sound or touch. Communication that interacts between the two person or a group of persons affects the behavior of a person, especially when it involves the 7 C's. The use of 7 C's makes a possible more extensive vocabulary for communicating, which in turn enable to transmit more complex information. Communication also varies according to habitat, since where an animal or human lives influences how information travels between sender and receiver. For example, fish, marine mammals and aquatic invertebrates all depend on the transmitting capacity of water for communication. Although, in contrast communication as learned behavior is clearly demonstrated in humans or animals.
