Argyle also emphasizes how important it is to receive feedback on activities that require skills to help them further improve. These skills can be known as interpersonal interaction where people exchange information and their emotions through verbal and non-verbal communication. Verbal and non-verbal communication is complicated at cycle states the information that is said has a particular code that has to be translated for the other person to fully decode and understand. For a conversation to start in a one-to-one conversation, an idea has to occur in someone's thought that they want to share and communicate, which is the first stage of Argyle's communication cycle.
After the message is received, the fifth stage will be when the message is decoded which can be difficult as the information can be interpreted in various ways depending on the tone of voice it has been said in or the body language. As for this reason to ask the person to repeat what they have just said or done. Finally, once the message is decoded, the last stage is understanding the message or idea, which may not happen the first time.
An example to support Argyle's theory could be in a hospital, where there is a one-to-one conversation between the doctor and patient in an office. After they both meet each other, the patient may have thought of a question to ask about their health, so an idea has occurred.
Then the patient would have to think of how to send the question across through dialect. Once the message has been coded, the patient has to act upon how they have thought to ask the question so that it has been sent. The doctor would then receive the message by listening to the question. The message has to be decoded by the doctor, however, this may be interpreted in a different way. Due to this, the doctor may ask for the patient to repeat or rephrase the question if it was not understood the first time around. When the question is understood, the doctor would be able to answer the question, going through the same process and feedback.
Hearing the doctor's opinion on their health will raise the patient's confidence as they would be reassured by the professional advice they have received, leaving them to feel valued. Additionally, the doctor can provide support to meet the needs of the patient by recommending a specific medication to help their recovery from the patient's illness.
By looking at one-to-one conversations in real-life situations and in health and social care settings, for instance, the example...
