Description

Several communication theories included in the book “First View over the Theories of Communication”, by authors Em Griffin, Andrew Ledbetter, Glenn Sparks etc. display interest on the topics and their content, interpreted according to a point of view which captures aspects of individual and collective psychology, and also sociological aspects, with broad backgrounds of historic and social-cultural development. In the framework of interpersonal communication, what draws attention, among others, is the theory of social penetration (Altman&Taylor), the management of private communication theory (Petronio) or insecurity decrease, which arises from the lack of know-how or delicate situations where an individual may be (Berger). Precisely based on the ideas of these authors, professors from different American universities, we were encouraged to establish our “research camera” on the way how their findings and results would be read in the Albanian reality. The observations, which I continue to do from time to time, by contacting individuals with different identity records, bring closer a more unique picture of interpersonal communication. Many preserve the features of a person, who according to Altman and Taylor opens up in a way that reminds you of the onions, layer after layer. But in the conditions of the immigrants that return, or neighbors that exchange between one-another for a long time, the perception of American researchers finds a moderate amount of expression. From the conditions of working in immigration, to the long stay abroad which imposes a double identity, but also the life close by - the neighborhood, the city, the residence - brings an interesting view where the aforementioned factors are intertwined with other elements that serve as criteria in the studies undertaken in the humanities (age, gender, language, religion, education, social status etc. etc.). Opening up between individuals depends on this complexity of factors, but if we accept that often in our reality we can notice an unjustified social penetration just by following the logic of removing layers one after the other, then it’s valuable to observe carefully and deeper to determine which are the elements that influence this sort of communicating behave and if there is a boundary, a limit beyond which any kind of private information cannot be transferred, when in the meanwhile a part of it is already offered by the source.

"Breaking the" boundaries "of private information"
