Speech Communication Antecedents of Perceived Confirmation
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
Two studies sought to examine the relationship between facilitative communication, self‐disclosure, and agreement/disagreement of one person in a marital relationship and the other's feeling of being confirmed. Differences in communication behaviors associated with male feelings of being confirmed and female feelings of being confirmed were discovered. Further, agreement and disagreement were not found to contribute to feelings of being confirmed. Findings are discussed in relation to the theoretical structure of confirming/disconfirming communication.
