The word "communication" has many different uses.

In dictionaries, first of all, the transmission of perception, feelings, and thoughts between humans.[1][2]A simple definition sentence such as, is posted.

However, in general, "communication" is not considered to be sufficiently established if only the transmission of information occurs, and between human beings, <<willCommunication, andHeart,FeelingSome of them supplement the explanation that communication was established only when "communication" was performed or "understanding each other" occurred.[3].

What is included in communication is quite widespread.infantStarting from the stageexpressionIt includes non-verbal ones that use gestures and gestures, as well as linguistic ones that are gradually learned as we get older.

It is very important to read non-verbal things and understand the other person.Mothers can only properly feed and change diapers when they understand that the baby expresses nonverbally, such as facial expressions, movements, and crying.Without nonverbal communication, even infants cannot be provided with the right things.Even in communication between adults, communication will not be successful if you cannot feel the slight changes in the facial expressions of the other person in front of you and the slight changes in the pitch of your voice.

PeopleLearningAbility to doImitationThe ability to do so, and in general, increased language skills in adolescence, adolescence, and adulthood, imitating various expressions used by others for communication and using them as their own. I also imitate linguistic expressions everyday and make them my own.Origin of languageThere are various theories, but one theory is also considered to be "for the purpose of communicating with others", and anything that calls for others using language can be called communication.挨 拶Also会話AlsospeechAlso, all is communication using language.

Communication is basically carried out from ancient times by people facing each other and listening directly to the other person's voice or looking directly at the other person's face, but since ancient timesletterIt is also widely practiced to communicate with people in remote areas.Also, from around the 19th century, telegraph andTelIt became possible to communicate with people in remote areas using electrical technology.

In recent research,plantIt is becoming more and more understood that plants also emit trace substances to communicate with each other.

Psychological interpretation

In terms of communication from the point of view of sending and responding, when a reaction (response) occurs in another individual in response to an action (outgoing) of one individual, it means that communication has been established between the two.[4].. The function of communication behavior is not limited to the transmission of information,共 感, Also includes a wide range of control of the behavior of the other party[4].

The establishment of communication is not limited to the fact that appropriate outgoing actions have been taken for that purpose,signal-媒体It also depends on whether or not you have a more accurate understanding after receiving your attention. There is a complementary relationship in interpreting symbolscontext(Non-verbal context) andCodes(Linguistic promise) and is referenced[5].. When the message cannot be deciphered only by referring to the defined code (for example, the child's communication), the context is referred and the estimation by the recipient is added.[Note 1].

The types of information received or conveyed by communication are:感情,Will,思考,knowledgeAnd so on. As a medium to receive or conveyword,expression,gesture,鳴 き 声,secretionmaterial(PheromoneEtc.) are used. Animal medium[Note 2]When comparing the human medium withBody movements,expression,PheromoneIn addition to the common medium with animals such as)言语There is a difference.

Communication often results in some kind of homogeneity and commonality as a result of its interaction.[Note 3].. Especially in the case of human beings, in addition to working by notifying others of their state of mind, the information received from others canHeartRead the status of共 感Also includes doing (understanding others)[Note 4].

Relationship and communication

Dog,catThey communicate with each other like dogs and cats, but they can't make a delicate relationship like humans. "FellowshipHumans can be so intimate that there is a saying (a close friendship that you will not regret even if you are decapitated).The reason,Hidetoshi KatoPartly because humans can use "words"[6], Because they can understand each other, have empathy, and empathize with each other.[7]And.According to Kato共 感Is the process by which a state that is very similar to the state that occurs inside one person occurs inside another person.[8]..For example, when someone hears the word "painful", the following process occurs inside the person who hears it.[8].. The listener imagines a state similar to the state of the body expressed by the word "painful" in line with his own experience.The listener does not usually feel pain in that area, but he knows what the physical condition he is trying to describe by the word "painful" is.[8]..Empathy also often occurs in the physiological dimension.[8]..For example, in an intimate relationship, pain is not only experienced imaginatively, but may also be experienced as actual physiological pain.[8]..Also, when the heart rate rises due to the behavior of a character in fiction, the audience (reader) can be said to replace himself with that character, so humans have the ability to "become the other person". That there is[8].

Kato analyzes the movement of the human mind while reading a novel about empathy using words, and states that it is a strange act that makes me happy and sad about the clogging of ink stains.[9]..From this, it is said that human beings have the ability to swim in the world of symbols as a shorthand notation of the real world.[9][10].

Humans move by symbols.And humans can sympathize with each other using symbols.Kato calls the process of empathy communication[11].共 感According to Kato, the more people are squeezed, the deeper their relationships become.Human relationsSays that is the accumulation of communication[12]..He also said that it is almost impossible to imagine a human relationship that would be established without exchanging symbols with each other.letter,A date,Talking,ConferenceRegardless of the relationship, human relationships are established through the exchange of symbols and words, and it is said that "speaking words" is a basic condition of human relationships.[12].

Non-verbal communication (NVC)

When humans communicate, they use words to convey each other's feelings and intentions.EyeIs more like a mouth than a word, as the saying goes,expression,Sight, Gestures may play a more important role.

On a daily basis, humans use multiple nonverbal cues to communicate messages with each other.This is called nonverbal communication (NVC).[13].. This non-verbal communication may be used consciously or unconsciously.[13].

Humans carry out non-verbal communication by facial expression, complexion, gaze, gesture, hand gesture, body posture, physical distance from the other party, etc.[14].

Understanding others: interpersonal communication and intra-individual communication

It is difficult for humans to understand each other no matter how many words they use. Because the dialogue takes place within humans[15].

There is "another me" inside one human being. To put it another way, it is also "another taken in." The communication that seems to be proceeding between two humans is actually also the communication within one human. One scholar describes this internal human communication as "intra-individual communication. Intrapersonal communication", and distinguished from "Interpersonal communication"[16].

Hidetoshi KatoCits one-man social relations (“authoritarian” society) as an example of poor intra-individual communication.[17]..One-man is called a person who does not have "understanding" ability because he does not have "another self".[17].

Gender differences in communication

(Translated from English

Men and women have very different ways of communicating with each other. For example, women talk about themselves more often than men. Women elaborate on her personal details. And women deepen their trust by talking more closely with men than men. Generally speaking, women value communication more than men.

Traditionally, men communicate with men and women communicate with women, but in different ways. Men share the same interests and become friends with other men. Women become friends with other women based on mutual support. However, it is a common factor that both men and women become friends with the opposite sex. Common factors are closeness, acceptance, effort, communication, common interests,愛情, Novelty, etc.

Situations are important when deciding how to communicate with others. It is important to understand what kind of communication is appropriate in individual relationships. In particular, it is extremely important to understand how familiarity and affection are transmitted in a given situation. For example, men keep competition in mind, even in close relationships. Men avoid mentioning their weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Men are reluctant to talk about their personal and emotional aspects in communicating with others. Men work with friends and exchange friendships to convey their friendliness. Men often communicate with each other side by side, as when watching sports on TV.

Women, on the other hand, don't mind expressing their weaknesses and vulnerabilities. In fact, women often develop friendships when describing it. Women feel close to their friends. For women, friends are relationships that do not criticize each other, support each other, enhance self-esteem, accept justification, and provide comfort to contribute to human growth. Women value the value of friends. In many cases, women face each other face-to-face and communicate with each other as if they were having lunch together.

Communicating with friends of the opposite sex is often difficult. This is because the expressions used by men and women in friendships are fundamentally different. Men, more than women, associate physical contact with sexual desire. Also, men are more likely to seek sex in heterosexual relationships than women. This makes communication between the opposite sex very difficult. In order to overcome these difficulties, both sides need to openly discuss how to communicate with men and women.

Communication and gender culture

The existence of a communication culture means that in a group of people, there is a standard way of communicating with each other.

Communication culture can be divided into male and female ones. Other communication cultures include Americans of African origin, old people, Native Americans.イ ン デ ィ ア ンThings ofゲ イThe man'slesbianWomen's, those with disabilities, etc.[18] .. The sex culture of men and women is first formed and maintained through interaction with other cultures. Through communication with others, we learn what our culture commands our sexuality to do.

It is widely believed that "sex is the root of the difference. It defines how people engage with and communicate with others," but in reality sex plays an important role. Plays[18].. All cultures can be divided into male and female cultures. Men's and women's cultures differ in the way they communicate and in how they interact with others. Julia T. Wood says in a study, "how communication is important in defining the cultural definition of being male and female."[18].. The reason and way of communicating is completely different between male culture and female culture.

Gender differences in communication style

Professor Deborah Tannen explained the gender differences in the style of communication as follows:[19].. He thought that men were involved with other men in diverse situations, whereas women were cooperatively involved with other women. For example,

  • Men tend to speak in public situations. Women tend to speak in private situations.
  • Women often speak face-to-face and make eye contact. Men often turn their eyes and speak.
  • Men jump from topic to topic, but women spend some time on one topic.
  • When listening to people's stories, women often say "yes" or "yes", but men often listen silently.
  • Women often express support and support, while men often argue.

However, it is impossible to make a general theory based on gender, and it can be said that individual differences and cultural background can be major factors. Therefore, some research results show that men and women generally communicate in the same way. Suzette Haden Elgin et al. criticized "Professor Tannen's study applies only to women in a particular culture and in a particular economic situation," and generally speaking that women speak much more words than men. Believe it, it was not true. However, in research studies by cultural anthropologists and ethnologists,ColorRegarding, it is certainly observed that women have much more expressions than men and use them with each other.

In fact, there is no denying that there are some gender differences or characteristics in communication. Professor Julia T. Wood explains how the differences between male and female culture influence communication.[18].. The difference between the two cultures began in childhood. Maltz and Broker research[20] Says that children's play serves to socialize children and bring in male and female culture. For example, a girl's play game develops personal relationships, but there are no set rules or goals. Boys, on the other hand, often play competitive team sports with different goals and strategies. This difference in childhood is due to the way women communicateRulesIs an opportunity to let girls learn. Women's methods of communication are quite different from those of men.

Just as the Western style of communication is not always done in Asian culture, the male style of communication is not necessarily done in women's culture. The reverse is also the same. Wood explains how men and women can communicate well with the opposite sex and makes six recommendations:

  1. Let's stop giving good and bad evaluation to the other party.
    If you don't have a good conversation with the opposite sex and you don't understand what's going on and how you can get mutual understanding, you have to stop saying bad things.
  2. Let's justify it for different modes of communication.
    Women value relationships and emotions, but they do not indicate that they are willing to respect the way men compete in communication. Similarly, men attach importance to work outcomes, but do not indicate that they are not willing to respect the way women communicate, showing compassion for others. Professor Wood states that it is inappropriate to employ either method, male or female, for heterosexual communication. Everyone must admit that men and women have different goals, different priorities and different criteria.
  3. Give them clues to translate.
    Following the recommendations in the previous section, you will understand that men and women have different modes of communication. In addition, you will come up with what you want to help others translate. This is very important. This is because I cannot automatically understand a communication method that is not in my sex culture without help.
  4. Look for translation clues.
    Mutual interactions between the opposite sex can be improved by looking for translational clues and reacting correctly. Improving interaction interactively can improve reactions from people from different cultures.
  5. Develop your communication skills.
    By learning the communication method of the other person, you can not only know about the other person's culture, but also about your own culture. You can improve your communication skills by learning and growing openly and incorporating what is important to your culture. According to Professor Wood, men can learn a lot from women's cultures about how they can help friends. Similarly, women can learn a lot from the male culture about how to get closer while doing something.
  6. Professor Wood repeats the sixth recommendation, "Let's stop evaluating others for good or evil."
    This is a particularly important recommendation. Because valuing is part of the Western culture of "valuing others and defending our position". Sex culture is busy assessing one's sex culture and defending one's own, and does not have effective heterosexual communication. It is the first and last important principle of not evaluating other people as good or bad in effective communication between different cultures.

Also,Integrated marketing communication(BMI) Is also positioned as a communication in marketing[21].

Advances in mass communication and communication technology

News (Chinese),tv set,radio,インターネットSuch asMass mediaThroughMassesConvey a large amount of information toMass communicationIs also a type of communication, as can be seen from the fact that the word communication is included. However, while other communication is more or less interactive, the reaction from the general public, who is the recipient of the information, to the mass media, which is the sender of the information, is very weak, and the mass who is the sender is almost the same. It is characterized by having a strong tendency of one-sided communication from the media to the general public as the recipient. With the spread of the Internet, this unidirectionality has somewhat diminished in Internet media, but this tendency has not changed in conventional mass media.

Mass communication like thisnotesStarted,TextMarkeddocumentsIt started when I was left behind. Until then by writing会話This is because it is now possible to store communications that had to be done, and it has become possible to transmit information to people in remote areas and in the far future generations.

Mass communication again developed greatly in the 1920s based on wireless communication technology.radioIt was when the broadcast started. With the development of this radio, mass communication gains immediacy, and unlike publication media, it can easily cross borders, and it is possible to deliver information to people who can not read because it is voice media. It was In the latter half of the 20th century, the development of television enabled mass communication to transmit not only audio but also video to people, and played an even greater role. On the other hand, radio was in the mid-1950sTrannyThe development ofPower InputIt became possible to carry it anywhere with the improvement of[23].1990 eraWith the spread of the Internet in the latter half, many ordinary citizens other than the mass media will also be able to send information to the general public.Mobile phoneWith the advent of, the communication between individuals has also been released from the line, making it possible to stay in touch no matter where you are.

Animal communication

BiologyIn the area of, the information between individuals when the behavior and voice of an individual animal influence the behavior of other individuals of the same or different species and it is advantageous to the individual who sent those signals. It is said that such communication is called "communication" in the sense that it was transmitted.[24].

Animal communication is common to species but not fixed, and changes flexibly depending on the situation of the originator. Communication signals are exchanged not only between the same species but also between different species.

When communication signals are exchanged, it means that both sides are benefiting from the exchange. There is intense debate about how different species, especially conflicting predators and prey, benefit from communication.

Communication game

There are games that make the most of communication.
