Abstract

Literature concerning gender and communication style is sparse and mixed in its results. On another side, communication style and interpersonal attraction have a relationship that is theoretically well-established. With an assumption that interpersonal attraction could be seen as a function of reciprocation in dyads, this study tried to find if there are any significant differences in the communication style differences between one’s self-report and his report of the other individual in the dyad; in dyads with and without reciprocation. Also, gender differences in self-reported communication styles, and perceived communication styles of most liked friends is presented. Results indicate that gender may not be as critical as may be assumed.
