So far we have seen many processes that shape and produce interpersonal communication. Whether it is how you perceive yourself through the looking glass, the culture that surrounds and penetrates you, the verbal and nonverbal messages that create meaning, and the skills needed to listen to another, we have seen a lot of influences on our personal and relational behavior. This assignment asks you to take one of those processes and use it to explain why a relationship has failed or succeeded. I encourage you to pick any relationship that you would like to explore: personal, professional, historical, fictional, athletics, entertainment, political, etc. This is your opportunity to learn about yourself or about something you have always wanted to explore more and enjoy researching.
