For this Discussion, you will conduct your own observation of communication behaviors. You will analyze the behaviors for adherence to or difference from gender-typical behaviors in your culture and provide a theoretical argument for their potential causes

To prepare

  • In a public place, such as a sporting event, the grocery store, the mall, a coffee shop, a park, or public transportation, conduct a 10- to 15-minute observation of the communication behaviors taking place around you. Write down your observations.
  • Consider the behaviors you observed that may be categorized as gender typical or atypical.



Post a summary of the gender typical and atypical behaviors you observed.

What other factors (e.g., age differences, power differences, cultural context) might have influenced the individuals to display those behaviors?

Provide a theoretical base to support your explanation of these behaviors.
