Classification of communication
Intrapersonal communication is the active internal involvement of the individual in the processing of messages, i.e. the communication that takes place within oneself. The individual becomes his or her own sender and receiver, providing feedback to him or herself in an ongoing internal process. Examples Intrapersonal communication can encompass: Day-dreaming Nocturnal dreaming Writing (by hand, or with a word processor, etc.) one's thoughts or observations Making gestures while thinking: the additional activity, on top of thinking, of body motions, may again increase concentration, assist in problem solving, and assist memory. Communication between body parts; e.g. "My stomach is telling me it's time for lunch."

Interpersonal communication Interpersonal communication is defined in numerous ways, but interpersonal communication is basically communication between two or three people. It can be very informal, such as when you talk to a friend during lunch break, or even very formal, such as when you discuss the possibility of retaking a course with a faculty administrator. Communication channels for interpersonal communication take two distinct forms: direct and indirect. Direct channels are obvious and easily recognized by the receiver, e.g. Words, as in written or spoken communication Indirect channels are usually recognized subconsciously by the receiver, and are not always under direct control of the sender. Body language, comprising most of the indirect channel, may inadvertently reveal one's true emotions. Arbitrary terms include, 'hunch', premonition'.

Mass communication This is a "one to many" form of communication, whereby information is mass produced and disseminated to a great quantity of audiences, through mass media, to large segments of the population at the same time, using channels such as newspaper and magazine publishing, radio, television and film.

Extra-personal communication This is communication with a Deity. It may involve the process of prayer or some other form of religious worship. It could also take place in the form of rites, or ceremonies. Extra personal communication can be a very personal thing, or it can be something done with a large group of people, such as in a temple or a church, or any other place of religious worship. In this form of communication, the elements of receiver, channel and feedback are defined by the sender(s).
