Correct Answer - Option 1 : Proximity, utility, loneliness

The correct answer is Proximity, utility, loneliness.

  • Proximity. utility, and loneliness influence the choice of communication partners.
  • Proximity:
    • ​It deals with a person's positioning and physical closeness while communicating with others.
    • One should move its proximity in response to the other person's body language.
  • Utility:
    • It deals with how both the parties, who are engaged in communication, can satisfy each other.
  • Loneliness:
    • While going through interaction, both parties (sender or receiver) must check whether the other person is feeling uncomfortable or some sort of loneliness.
    • The speaker should try to communicate the information which is beneficial for both ends.
    • So that the other person feels interested and not lonely.

  • Communication is the two-way process of exchanging views, ideas, and thoughts. 
    • It can be both verbal and non-verbal.
    • According to Peter Little:
      • "Communication is the process by which information is transmitted between individuals and/or organizations so that an understanding response results".
    • Without communication, no organizational and personal goals are achieved.
    • Therefore, a proper channel of communication at all levels is required.
