Communication between people is a multilayered process. Because of this fact, many of us feel inadequate in our attempts to understand others and be understood. Whenever any two people try to communicate, there are at least two levels to that communication: The overt message consists of the words we hear and the gestures we see. The hidden message has more to do with the intent behind the words.

Most of us do not have the knowledge, the skill, or the confidence to address the often hidden intent of another’s communication – especially if the intent has something to do with trying to control an unknown outcome. People try to manipulate the outcome of their interactions all the time and if they’re not doing that, they’re trying to bolster up their egos.

In my research, I discovered that almost 90 percent of all human communication comes from the usually unconscious intent to control. Most of us are not aware of when we are communicating with the intent to control and when we are expressing our feelings and thoughts simply to exchange feelings or information. The intent to control reveals itself in many disguises: As you look down this list, you’ll notice that all of these things have something to do with avoiding uncomfortable feelings.

Perhaps you recognize yourself in one or more of these examples. We may cling to the illusion of control and try to predict or manipulate the outcome – for example, we may try to make ourselves feel more comfortable by assuming we know how someone else is going to react to us.

Hirschman , Rutgers University ABSTRACT – This paper examines two specific types of consumer-generated discourse which are constructed in response to television shows and motion pictures; these are intertextuality and archetypes. In the present paper, I demonstrate three forms of intertextuality used by consumers to onnect their own personal narratives to the larger cultural discourse surrounding them. Archetypes are concepts carried forward in discourse generation after generation and used to anchor key meanings, often bi-polar, that the culture uses to explain the workings of the world.

Jung argues that archetypes are invariant across time and societies, because they are inherent to the human species; whereas others argue for a culturally-coded view in which archetypes are most significant as iconic representations of social meanings, for example, Good versus Evil. As will be shown, archetypic icons are readily drawn by consumers from mass media texts such as motion pictures and television shows.

The present paper is drawn from interviews generated during a large-scale study which examined consumer discourse generated in response to questions about their favorite motion pictures, television shows, actors and actresses. The aim of the study was to learn how consumers incorporated these cultural narratives into their lives, especially in terms of gaining understanding of cultural norms and alternative paths of self-development see e.

This paper examines two specific types of consumer-generated discourse which are constructed in response to television shows and motion pictures; these are intertextuality and archetypes.
