Comm Theory - Perception (Symbolic Interactionism)

symbolic interaction the ongoing use of language and gestures in anticipation of how the other will react; a conversation
meaning: the construction of social reality humans act toward people or things on the basis of meanings they assign to those people or things.
language: the source of meaning meaning arises out of the social interaction that people have with each other.
thinking: the process of taking the role of the other an individual's interpretation of symbols is modified by his or her own thought processes.
minding an inner dialogue used to test alternatives, rehearse actions, and anticipate reactions before responding; self-talk.
taking the role of the other the process of mentally imagining that you are someone else who is viewing you.
Mead's self components meaning, language, and thinking
looking-glass self the mental self-image that results from taking the role of the other; the objective self; me.
I the subjective self; the spontaneous diving force that fosters all that is novel, unpredictable, and unorganized in the self.
Me the objective self; the image of self seen when one takes the role of the other.
generalized other the composite mental image a person has of his or her self based on societal expectations and responses.
applied symbolic interaction Creating reality. Meaning-ful research. Generalized other. Naming. Self-fulfilling prophecy. Symbol manipulation.
participant observation the method of adopting the stance of an ignorant yet interested visitor who carefully notes what people say and do in order to discover how they interpret their world.
self-fulfilling prophecy the tendency for our expectations to evoke responses that confirm what we originally anticipated.
responsive "I" the self created by the way we respond to others.
ethical echo the reminder that we are responsible to take care of each other; I am my brother's keeper
face of the "other" a human signpost that points to our ethical obligation to care for the other before we care for self.
