Some ways of assuring the successes of interpersonal communications is getting to know the self, as well as understanding how others think from their point of view. Such a way of thinking helps in connecting with others, making one side feel understood by the other, and the other being able to express what is asked or wanted to the other party. By being proactive and dedicated in the art of being successful in interpersonal communications, rather than creating more problems, more solutions can be done to solve them, thus giving the importance of successful communications between people the merit of connecting people and building a highly-organized society.
Communication is a way of one being or organism to send signals or information to the surroundings or other beings similar to it (Stewart, 2012). It is the expression of one’s self to others, making one’s existence known to others, as well as acknowledging the existence of others and the expression of others of their own selves. Through the process of communication, groups of people can survive and thrive, or the lack of any form of communication could be disastrous for them (Stewart, 2012). But communication is not just limited to survival measures. For the human civilization to successfully thrive, communication has a vital role in the formation of societies, the building of ancient cities, and of humankind being able to endure most conditions that would otherwise wipe out other forms of life. Thus, successful communication is an integral component of how mankind was able to become the strongest driving force on Earth in less than a hundred centuries.

However, there are also times when the information becomes distorted, mainly due to some communication barriers between the one that transmit the information, and the one that receives it (Stewart,
