What is INTRAPERSONAL COMMUNCATION? It is a kind of communication that occurs within us. It involves thoughts, feelings and the way we look at ourselves. Self-talk


In one word describe yourself. In three words describe yourself. In ten words describe yourself. Was one word hard? Yes, because we are complex people.


WHO ARE YOU? 1. “How do I see myself ?” 2 . “Do I like or not what I see ?” 3 . “How do I wish to see myself?” “How do I present myself to others ?” 4 . “Who do others say I am?” “What do I imagine others say about me ?” 5 . “How does this affect me?”

Self-talk is the inner speech that includes the questions and comments you make to yourself. It is a powerful influence. You use it when you: :

Self-talk is the inner speech that includes the questions and comments you make to yourself . It is a powerful influence . You use it when you: Think things through Interpret events Interpret messages of others Respond to your own experiences Respond to your interactions with others


Research has show than positive self talk increases focus, concentration and performance. I f you believe you cannot do something, your brain will tell your body and it will shut down. When you stay encouraged and positive, your body will also respond in a positive way.


WISEMAN and BARKER MODEL Intrapersonal communication is the “creating, functioning, and evaluation of symbolic processes which operate within the originating or responding communicator.” (1974)

Elements of Intrapersonal Communication:

Elements of Intrapersonal Communication Internal Stimuli Are nerve impulses received by the brain as a result of the physiological and psychological states of the body, such as when your hungry and thirsty.


External Stimuli Are received from the sources other than communication. On the other hand, it comes from outside your body, from your immediate or proximate environment. They are classified into two types: Overt Covert


Overt Stimuli are transmitted to one of the sensory organs in the brain. These are received during communication at the conscious level.


Covert Stimuli are external stimuli received by the individual at the subconscious level. Reading and thinking something else is a good example.


*Happens when the body first receives stimuli. *Receiving can take place singly or in combination of any of the five senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste. *External and internal receptors in the five sensory organs receive stimuli which are transformed into nerve impulses and subsequently transmitted to the brain. *External receptors are found on or near the surface of the body. These receptors react to physical, chemical, and mechanical stimuli. *Internal receptors such as nerve endings provide information about your internal state such as an empty stomach or an itchy throat. RECEPTION



Discrimination & Regrouping:

Discrimination & Regrouping Discrimination determines what stimuli are allowed to stimulate thought. It screens out the less significant or weaker stimuli . In regrouping, the strongest and most important stimuli previously selected are arranged in a meaningful sequence . Although screened previously, the diverse stimuli have not been ranked.


Decoding The best way to be understood is to give symbols to the stimuli. Decoding will take place when the stimuli will be changed into thought symbols. The process of giving symbols to ideas, places things smells or sounds are few examples.


Ideation Ideation is the stage where the messages are thought out, planned and organized . This stage draws mainly on the individual’s storehouse of knowledge and experience which may include previous associations with the topic, readings, observation, an d conversation . The length of time depends on the availability of material.

Incubation and Encoding:

Incubation and Encoding Incubation is the process of allowing your ideas to grow and develop further . Often referred to as the “jelling or hatching period .” Allows you time to weigh, evaluate, reorganize and reflect on your messages . In Symbol Encoding, the symbols of thought are transformed into words and gestures or actions.

Transmission and Feedback:

Transmission and Feedback In transmission the destination is the communicator himself. The origin or point of initiation is likewise himself. The self-communicator’s message is composed of words and gestures are thus transmitted via air or light waves. Feedback in intrapersonal communication is called self- feedback. External is the self-communicator’s response through airwaves. Internal self-feedback is felt through bone conduction and muscular movement.

Life Orientation:

Life Orientation Life orientation is a process that interacts with all the processes stated above. in case of a person, his life orientation is the totality of his social, hereditary and personal factors which he acquired during the development. Communication problems sometimes arise because of the different life orientations.

Ethics in Using Communication Techniques:

Ethics in Using Communication Techniques C ommunication is not always done in an ethical chamber. Communication may be fine or harsh. Sometimes people are forced to act even if it is against their will. They act accordingly because of the manner by which the message was given. Let us consider the types of ethical demands from a responsible speaker. These are: Demands you make upon yourself. Demands imposed on you by the situation. Audience’s sense of what will be ethically proper. Constraints imposed by societal standards conduct.
