What if we talked like this?

The sender-receiver model was the first model of communication. http://home.snu.edu/~jsmith/library/body/v25.pdf It is crazy to think that communication was thought to be this simple. This model shows one person sending a message and another receiving it. The problem with this method is that it lacks feedback. Once person A sends the message, person B does not get a chance to respond. This model of communication just does not correctly show how complicated communication can really be. Imagine if this was how we communicated with one another. You would hear the message, but without being able to give feedback it is no conversation at all. http://www.unco.edu/doit/resources/publication_pdfs/feedbackaconversationaboutthework.pdf image
