Human Communication- Chapter 4: The Self

For chapter 4, we learn about the self. What is the self?

The self can be defined as the way in which communication and interpretation of messages takes place within an individual. In my understanding, it is a form of intrapersonal communication because it takes place within an individual.

There are 4 important subtopics within this chapter. They are:

  1. Self concept- It is about how you think and feel about yourself
  2. Self awareness- About discovering personal development and understanding
  3. Self esteem- Confidence or trust of yourself
  4. Self disclosure- Telling others about your personal details
I've been reminded by the lecturer that self concept and self awareness are always been confused by students. These two are different because self concept is about how you think and feel about yourself whereas self awareness is about discovering your potential. Besides, there's also Johari's Window under the self awareness subtopic that we must emphasize:

Human communication- Chapter 3: Listening

For this chapter, we learnt about listening. There are many definition for listening but generally it can be defined as a specialized process where you receive auditory signals.

There are five stages of listening. They are:
  1. Receiving
  2. Understanding
  3. Remembering
  4. Evaluating
  5. Responding
Listening is often difficult because of cultural barrier. Why is this so? Because there exist differences in the communication systems between speaker and listener. Therefore, speaker and listener from different culture might face difficulties in listening.

Even though there are difficulties for listening to occur, there are ways to overcome it in order to achieve effective listening. They are:
  1. Participatory and passive listening
  2. Emphatic and objective listening
  3. Nonjudgemental and critical thinking
  4. Surface and depth listening
From this chapter, I learnt that listening is totally different from hearing. This is because listening requires you to understand the message given by the speaker besides giving response to him or her.

Human communication- Chapter 2: Perception

Today we learnt about perception in human communication class. Okay, what's perception? It can be defined as the impression that others give you and what you project to others.

Process of perception are:
  1. Sensory stimulation occurs
  2. Sensory stimulation is organized
  3. Sensory stimulation is evaluated/interpreted
There are four processes that influence perception. They are:
  1. Implicit personality theory. (One direction)
  2. Self-fulfilling prophecy
  3. Primary recency
  4. Consistency (Two direction)
  5. Attribution
From this chapter, I've learnt that perception is something that don't happen just like that because it must go through a process before it is interpreted. Also, perception can be influenced by the four things as mentioned.

Human communication- Introduction

Yo sup. I'm posting about what am I learning from this subject called human communication in UCSI University. The lecturer told us to blog about his lesson every week so if you aren't interested please run away. Hehh. Okay, what have I learnt in the first class of human communication? Basically it's almost like the repetition of oral communication class. ALMOST. Since human communication involves a deeper topics of communication.

First of all, human communication can be defined as the act of sending and receiving messages by one or more person either through verbal or non-verbal way. Components of human communication includes source, receiver, channel, noise and effects. Generally, these are the important parts of the introduction.

We can also conclude that the purpose of human communication is to help people, to discover potential ability of oneself,  to relate, to persuade and to play.

Life in UCSI University

Yo sup! Berabad lamanya aku tak update blog aku. Okay, why am I posting this entry? It's because I'm assigned by my lecturer to blog about the lesson that he taught us. But before I post those school stuffs, I wanna tell you about the life in UCSI sebab rasa macam terlalu tiba-tiba je kalau aku tak post apa and then terus post pasal school assignments.

  1. Environment- It's a good place to study, compared to Damansara since there are not that much of entertainments except for a few small malls. But it can be quite noisy at the South Wing where there will be many events taking place throughout the year. 
  2. Facility- There are gym, library, swimming pool, multipurpose hall where you can play badminton or basketball there, pool table, computer lab, discussion rooms and ballroom. Have I said that the library is 5 floor high? So the facilities is quite complete for me
  3. Lecturers- There are good and not so good lecturers. But I can say that all lecturers are okay. You don't expect them to spoon-feed you though. It's already tertiary education!
To be honest, the management sucks. Unorganized time table, clashing classes during early weeks of semester and more. The speed of the wi-fi can also be annoyingly slow. But at least only these are the bad things that I could think of. If you plan to enroll here, you're very welcomed as there are many friendly students around here.

Apa nak buat lepas Form 5 / Tingkatan 5/ SPM?

Mesti ramai yang pening apa yang korang nak buat lepas form 5. Jangan risau, korang bukan satu-satunya orang yang pening. Aku pun dulu 2 kali 5 juga. Sekarang ni dengan experience aku yang agak matang *cehh* aku nak share sikit la apa yang korang boleh buat.

Untuk lanjutkan pelajaran ada dua cabang iaitu:

  1. Kerajaan
  2. Swasta
Sebelum masuk universiti untuk degree, korang kena masuk pra-universiti dulu.

1) Kerajaan ( Pra Universiti)

Untuk lanjutkan pelajaran (pra-universiti) kat institut kerajaan, korang kena apply pakai upu. Tapi sebelum tu korang kena beli pin BSN. Harga dia tak silap RM6.50 kot. Tapi tak tau la sekarang harga dia berapa. Korang boleh beli pin tu kat Bank Simpanan Negara. Google je cara dia macam mana. Nanti bila dah apply, nama korang akan disimpan kat data kerajaan. Korang akan dipilih sama ada layak untuk masuk matrikulasi, asasi (tak pasti sgt pasal ni) atau paling kurang pun politeknik bergantung kepada result SPM korang. Kalau korang bukan bumiputera, sorry to say, susah sikit nak masuk matrikulasi atau asasi universiti kerajaan. Sebab ratio dia 90% bumiputera, 10% kaum lain. Sebab ni la aku tak apply upu, kalau apply pun bukan boleh dapat sebab aku bukan bumiputera. Haha. Kalau korang tak terpilih ataupun korang yang malas sangat nak apply upu macam aku ni boleh la masuk Form 6.

Kerajaan (Universiti)

Lepas korang dah habis pra-u, korang boleh masuk universiti dengan syarat korang lulus pra-u korang. Untuk course macam medicine, destistry, pharmacy, atau course science yang lain selalunya kena dapat cgpa 3.5 ke atas atau 2A1B untuk SPM baru boleh masuk sebab saingan dia kuat! Especially medicine. Kadang orang yang dapat cgpa 4.0 atau STPM dia straight A pun tak dapat tawaran medicine. Bila korang lulus Pra-universiti, korang akan dapat surat tawaran untuk pergi ke universiti kerajaan yang ditawarkan kat surat tu. Bagi yang lulus dengan cemerlang, korang akan dapat tawaran universiti-universiti yang gempak. Tapi yang lulus cukup-cukup makan tu, dapat ler universiti cap ayam. Hahaha. Jangan marah ek. Aku bagitau sejujur yang mungkin.

2)Swasta (Pra universiti)

Haa yang ni aku memang lagi tau sikit sebab aku Pra-u kat swasta. Hehe. Korang boleh pilih sama ada nak amik A-level, Foundation (Science/Art/Business etc), IB, atau diploma kat mana-mana kolej atau universiti swasta. Apply kolej atau uni swasta ni gila senang berbanding kerajaan and korang akan lebih mudah diterima walaupun keputusan korang agak hampeh. Tapi keburukan dia, swasta ni lagi mahal berbanding kerajaan. Korang cuma boleh buat pinjaman ptptn kalau korang amik diploma je. Kalau yang lain memang tak boleh. Tapi kalau boleh result SPM bagi la gempak sikit biar boleh dapat scholarship atau paling tak pun dapat diskaun. Macam aku, dapat 50% diskaun beb. (Bukan nak menunjuk-nunjuk, sekadar motivasi :p ).

Swasta (Universiti)

Untuk masuk universiti swasta, korang kena lulus juga dalam pra universiti. Semua universiti swasta juga terima pelajar dari STPM and sebahagian terima pelajar dari matrikulasi.

Aku amik laluan mana?

Aku pula amik laluan mana? Apa? Korang tak tanya? Kisah apa plak aku, blog aku, sukati aku la nak taip apa. HAHA. Aku masa habis SPM kerja sebagai Logistics kat kedai buku Popular sementara tunggu result keluar. Result SPM aku okay je kot, cuma 7A & aku ni science stream. Lepas dapat result aku terus resign kerja and apply A-level kat KDU untuk March intake. Yuran aku dapat potongan disebabkan result SPM aku. Nanti lepas A-level aku mungkin akan sambung kat UCSI university untuk degree aku, amik course Food Science.

Kalau korang ada apa-apa soalan, sila tanya. Sebelum tanya, sila kemukakan:

1) Minat course apa
2) Kerajaan atau Swasta
