This is a self-report of what you noticed you experienced as you were decoding the message as a receiver. I’m asking you to show that you are able to self-monitor and be aware of your own intrapersonal communication. Notice that there are no requirements to link this response to class. Just be aware and report. (1-2 sentences)
Connections: What two connections you can make to interpersonal communication?
