In addition, we will establish which mode of communication students find elicit the most meaningful conversations (meaningful defined as adding significance, meaning, or purpose to somebody�s life). The conversations under question will be limited to peer-to-peer interaction.
We are trying to find out if specific personality traits cause a person to use a mode of communication more frequently than another. We are examining where our participants� personalities fall on the scale of Introversion/Extraversion and Neuroticism/Emotional Stability. Extraversion/Introversion is meant to study sociability and expressiveness, and Neuroticism/Emotional Stability is meant to study one�s emotional reactivity.
