A response during communication is needed for the communication to take place. If someone is talking to you and you are not responding, it is difficult for communication to take place. When you respond to someone, it shows that you are listening to them, which then shows that you understand what they are saying and are interpreting it correctly, and are thus communicating. However, the response doesn’t need to be verbal. A simple nod can even be considered communicating, as long as both participants are aware of each other and understand what is being put forth. Without response it is unclear whether the message is received or not. And how it has been taken by the receiver. If response does not come up it is likely to understand that the message has not been received and or individual has lost interest of communication in such conversation or situation. Lack of response during communication can lead a significant harm to an individual’s physical and mental health and wellbeing. Responding positively to the reaction of an individual can communicate in difficult issues.
