In the modern world

In the modern world, communication plays a significant role in human life, and it is impossible to do without it, regardless of whether a person likes being alone or not. In simple words, communication is the transfer of information, ideas or feelings between two or more people. Without communication, formation of personal identity, fostering, intellectual development, accommodation to life is impossible. Communication is vital in the process of the maintenance of interpersonal relations, leisure, an emotional discharge, creativity and it is crucial for a separate individual and also for human communities as an integrated whole.
Subjects of communication are living beings, people. Communication is typical for any living creature, but only at the level of a person, the process of communication becomes conscious, connected by verbal and non-verbal acts. There should be at least two direct participants of communication, which are called the addresser and the recipient. The addresser manages the language activity and makes for it many strategies, rules, operational systems. Third parties may also participate as observers or listeners, and their presence imposes its imprint on the nature of communication.
In my opinion, communication is highly important in the formation of the human psyche, its formation of intelligent, cultural behavior. By communicating with psychologically developed people, thanks to the broad possibilities for learning, a person acquires all higher cognitive abilities and qualities. Through active communication with the developed personalities, just a man becomes an individual.
What is more, communication can also be a goal. Every person needs contact in one way or another. On the one hand, it is a need for new impressions, feelings, knowledge. On the other side, it is a necessity to share someone’s own experiences and thoughts. So the need for such information exchange for a person is no less urgent than the need for metabolism. Formation of the inner world of a man, his consciousness, feelings, knowledge is also possible only through communication between people. This is evidenced not only by examples of children who were deprived of full-fledged communication and were unable to develop. Even adults, if they are deprived for a long time of opportunities to communicate with themselves, may lose their previously acquired human qualities. For example, Bozeman A. Selkirk – the prototype Robinson Crusoe, who spent four years alone on a deserted island, not only forgot how to speak but also lost the ability to understand correctly what is happening to him.
Control and power almost always play a significant role in any communication but in most cases, influence negatively on the communication process. When separate individuals or groups of people meet, there is always a process of establishing a power relationship, which can be either conscious or unconscious. That does not mean that this process is bad or wrong because one party, for the most part, dominates communication and expects to have more control and accordingly the other side may accept the dominance. However, the other company may be annoyed and disappointed by the other who seized power and may respond in actions which are not conducive for meaningful communication (boycott, attacking, etc.) It is especially necessary that the dominant party will take firm and prudent actions to make the experience of power more balanced in the communication of the participants involved.
In a conversation dominate people who by nature and peculiarities are powerful, with leadership features. Domination in communication brings satisfaction in cases where another person is in need of subjection. If in the conversation there are two leaders with a need for domination, the conflict cannot be avoided. Communication between two strong opposites is challenging as a rule because the participants are in need of subjection.
A few examples of power which usually influences the communication between individuals or groups are participants’ status, the attitude of people; the ability clearly, emotionally and logically express themselves. Power and control in communication play a significant role, but in most cases, authority may influence negatively in the communication process. Control and power almost always play a significant role in any communication. However, in most cases, authority and power impact negatively on the communication process.
Overall, communication is a tool with which people express their ideas and feelings, and it undoubtedly plays a significant role in human life. It is of great importance in the formation of the human psyche, its development and the formation of cultural behavior. Control and power are also vital in communication because some people are leaders with a need for authority in a conversation and others
Thus, communication is a basic and essential aspect of human existence, a prerequisite for the formation of a person as a social being capable of coexistence with oneself.
