Abstract

Communication apprehension (CA) affects interpersonal perceptions in small task‐oriented groups. Those who scored higher in CA were rated both by themselves and by others to be lower in emerged leadership, and lower in both social and task attraction than those with lower CA. Lower apprehensives received higher overall intragroup evaluations than did higher apprehensives. Trend analyses identified more stable perceptions over time for lower CAs and, increasingly positive perceptions of higher CAs.
