Dyadic Encounter Essay, Research Paper

My partner was Mohammed amine Khaldi. Our encounter took place in a

common room in school. We choose there because it was nice and quite , that way we

could talk and better understand each other without distraction. During the conversation

we had, we completed the entire exercise easily. We didn?t skip any questions; even

thought, sometimes we were very surprise by certain questions. at times we felt

uncomfortable to describe each other how we were feeling every five minutes.

knew it was part of an exercise.

When we first began I wasn?t really nervous. But it kinda seem to me that

my partner was. I knew it would be a fun exercise because I was going to get the chance

of learning more about someone else. We tried to make this exercise fun and interesting

as possible by asking questions , and not just asking them but getting deeper into them.

We tried to find out as much as possible of each other by doing this exercise.

I got to learn more about Mohammed while he was in the middle of the self

disclosure process. we made the conversation very interesting by disclosing the self,

revealing unknown information. The person revealing new information has total control

to give the accurate feedback to the person revealing unknown informantion.

I encountered some anxiety when I had to answer broad questions such as , ?the

thing I like best about you is?? may be telling this to someone else would?ve been a

little more comfortable , but when it comes to telling someone you don?t know it feels a

little weird. also the thing about this questions is it was very hard to answer those

questions in such a short period of time. The problem in this kind of situation is that you

have to be very fast and specific. If we had all the time in the world and if it would have

been someone I knew in a long time then , I would tell my partner what I like best about


What made this assignment easy, was the fact that there was no right or wrong .

it was just an assignment that applied to everyone differently, according to how they live

life ;and what are their believes about certain things. Regarding level of disclosures

information, I believe we disclosed about the same level of personal Information, wich

Probably made our encounter so interesting. Throught the whole conversation my partner

provide positive feedback. It automatically made it entertaining. The insight I gain from

the interpersonal communication process was the ability to notice the changing of

people?s attitude during different moments of the conversation.
