Identifying Parts of the Transactional Model

Find a video clip on Youtube that demonstrates the transactional nature of interpersonal communication. This clip could be a brief scene from your favorite movie or television program so long as you make sure the content is appropriate. Explain each component that appears in the clip.

1. Be sure to copy/paste the URL in your response or insert it using the YouTube icon at the top of the discussion board. 

2. Note the time frame that displays the elements if it is only a portion of the clip, and address each component (sender-receiver, encoding-decoding, channel, feedback, and noise) in your analysis.

3. Finally, explain who you think is the more competent communicator of the two. Your response should demonstrate your understanding of the transactional view of communication as well as the essential elements of effective interpersonal communication. 

4. You should be descriptive in your 150-250 word response.
