As far as communication is concerned, plenty of factors influence how people communicate and how they are perceived. In most instances, how an individual communicates is based on their personality and upbringing, and as such, there is a need to analyze particular traits and aspects further when seeking to ascertain whether one is telling the truth (West & Turner, 2011). At the same time, the influences of stereotypes and communication codes do well to influence how we perceive others as well as how we communicate with them. Because of these issues, it is imperative that one is aware of how people communicate to help facilitate effective and clear communication (Morgan, 2008).
In this case, it is highly possible that the late student is telling the truth. It is highly likely that the student may have forgotten forgot their ID in their haste to get to the computer lab. However, it becomes quite difficult to believe their story and fulfill their request due to some factors. First off, the knowledge that campus crime has been on the rise plays a significant role in shaping how one perceives others, especially at night. Because of this, the idea that the person in question could be a thief plays a core role in how they are perceived and the communication that ensues from the interaction (McCann & Keaton, 2013). At the same time, the stereotypes that I have of thieves will also play a core role in influencing how the communication between us proceeds (Gamble & Gamble, 2013). If the physical stature of the person resembles my idea of how thieves should look and how they dress, I will be highly reluctant to listen to their requests. At the same time, my tension and fear over the situation will hinder effective interpersonal communication as in such an instance; it becomes nearly impossible to listen to the person actively.
However, it is also equally important to note that several communication codes will affect how I perceive the person and whether I can consider honoring their request. Two of the most important communication codes in this regard will be vocalists and kinesics. In terms of kinesics, the body language of the person will do well to demonstrate whether they are telling the truth or not (West &am
