  • Two main types of goals that people have for conversations are to give/receive information and develop their relationships.

  • People can pursue just one of the goals, or they can pursue both goals simultaneously to various degrees.

  • For example, someone with both high informational and relational intent might share honest feedback with another person, while someone who only has relational intent might instead share empty flattery.

  • There are sometimes goal conflicts, for instance when someone wants advice about something (an informational motive), but doesn’t want to ask for it because they don’t want to appear incompetent (a relational consideration).

  • Explicitly considering your goals—as well as those of your conversation partners—can help you have more effective conversations.
