Communication Apprehension


"About one of every five persons--20 percent of all college students--is communication apprehensive. . . .Communication apprehensive people may not appear apprehensive unless they are engaging in a particular type of communication. High communication apprehension seems unrelated to general anxiety and intelligence." (Pearson & Nelson, An Introduction to Human Communication, p. 224)
