Abstract

This investigation created a new 26-item scale to measure a construct labeled unwillingness to communicate. In conjunction with measures of communication apprehension, anomia, and alienation, the scale was used to predict small group interaction behavior. The scale was the best predictor of tension in the small group. The reliability, criterion-related validity, and potential utility of the scale are discussed.
