interview are violated.

fairness, choice, and responsibility should be applied absolutely, with
no exceptions.

secondary, not primary importance.
7. Communication competence in groups necessitates behavior that is
both effective and appropriate.

capabilities that the person is simply born with.

communication behaviors.
