Interpersonal Sensitivity: Theory and Measurement

By Judith A. Hall; Frank J. Bernieri | Go to book overview

This comprehensive measure of interpersonal sensitivity invites social psychologists to explore further the variables in the social context that may affect interpersonal sensitivity, variables such as the tasks involved in the interaction, the motivation of the interactants, and the size and composition of the group interacting. Interpersonal sensitivity is definitely a social phenomenon, and the exploration of the contextual variables affecting sensitivity will contribute to the improvement of all social interactions.
