A. There’s room for disagreement about how to enact
   ID’s, so need to focus on which are salient

B. ID’s seldom tightly defined, so ________________

C. ID’s usually inferred, not ________________

D. A – C lead to need for “working consensus” on ID’s
                Working consensus

     –   Way you act & way I interpret our ID’s have to match well
         enough to comm (i.e. Is your behav. consistent with what
         I think of our ID’s? vice versa?)
2. Need sufficient consensus (agreement)
   for interaction to go on
     –   My expectation can’t be grossly violated by your behav.
3. Pre-requisite to any other business
4. Failure to achieve can lead to
   ___________, ______, __________,
              Working Consensus
For consensus, 2 behav’s constantly on-going:

    – My behav’s that enact _______________
    – How I act to you shapes how I see myself, vice-versa

    – My behav’s that enact ____________
    – How I act to you indicates how I see you and also
      shapes both our ideas of your ID
