Or simply have fun UNINTENTIONAL communication occurs when children do something that helps others to understand how they are feeling or what they need without communicating on purpose UNINTENTIONAL - are not purposeful, but may be transmitted by action as well as by words. INTENTIONAL: Something that is done with intention or on purpose.
Intentional Communication can be called "CONSCIOUS COMMUNICATION"
-this implies that we are speaking with awareness of our purpose and its effect on others. -often times these are messages that are conveyed in NON-VERBAL communication. -these are messages that were not intended to be sent or were not intended for the individual who received it. the gap between what we intend to communicate & what is actually received. Motley (1990)- argued that only intentional messages are qualified as communication. Bavelas (1990) - however argued that it is impossible to not communicate because both deliberate & unintentional behavior sends a message. *Unintentional Messages are always present when intentional communication is taking place & it will affect the way in which the intended message is believed. *Many authors stress that the participants in any communication event are highly dependent on one another. ex. Smile = enjoynment
turning away = disinterest/dislike INTENTIONAL communication however is highly regarded and important to Pre-Linguistics SEVEN LEVELS OF COMMUNICATION: 1. Pre-Intentional Behavior - not under the individuals control.
2. Intentional Behavior - behavior is under the individual's control but it is not yet used to communicate intentionally.
