Abstracted representation of group interaction taking place between different individuals. The thin line around each circle represents whatever you notice first (observable or readily detectable characteristics). The inside of each circle reflects all deep-level characteristics someone has (e.g., skills, knowledge, experience, education, attitudes, empathy, assertiveness, etc.). Each arrow represents the type of communication taking place between each individual. Anyone is free to interpret the meaning of each color, because it may vary across different groups, people, and situations.
