In 1972

In 1972, Argyle came up with the theory of the communication cycle. This highlights that effective communication involves a two-way process in which each person tries to understand and checks that their idea has been clearly understood without difficulty. According to Argyle social skills involve a cycle that helps to translate or decode what the other person is trying to communicate. This communication theory isn’t used when having group conversations but is used when having a one to one conversation which is between you and another person. The communication cycle has 6 stages they are:
• The idea occurs
• The messages are coded
• Message is sent
• Message is received
• Message is decoded
• Message is understood
