Komunikacyjne zachowania w małżeństwie z perspektywy własnej i partnera
Communicative behaviour in a married life seen from a personal and a partner’s perspective
Languages of publication
Interpersonal communication is a complex process which influences the ways individuals function, in particular in a marriage. According to M. Plopy, the communication processes in a marriage are influenced by the following dimensions: giving support to a spouse, the level of engagement in a process of communication and aggressive behaviour directed towards a spouse. The abovementioned issues are used to define the communicative behaviour in a marriage. Thanks to the Communication in Marriage Questionnaire by M. Kaźmierczak and M. Plopy the following was examined: is there a connection between the dimensions of communicative behaviours including: support, engagement and depreciation. Afterwards they examined: 1) are there any differences between women and men in the assessment of their own and partner’s communicative behaviours; 2) are there any differences between people with short or long married lives when it comes to exhibited communicative behaviour. The obtained results show that there exists a connection between the dimensions of communicative behaviours, including: support, engagement and depreciation. Moreover, the significant differences in the examined areas have been discovered when it comes to both personal and the partner’s perspective.
