5) Physical distractions as barriers to communication are usually harder to prevent in a speaking or listening situation because the surroundings cannot be controlled or changed.
6) Miscommunication occurs when components of the intended message, actual message, or interpreted message are different for either the sender or the receiver.
7) Intrapersonal communication is the communication that occurs between two people.
8) The you-attitude involves putting your reader or listener first and being considerate of the other person.
9) Written communication is most effective when the sender has good writing skills and the receiver has good reading skills.
