  • The postponed feedback to the communication of another party; generally pertains to a verbal reply. This interval might provide the necessary time for an individual to cognitively process the information relayed to him or her and to construct a response. The pause in an exchange of communication can also correlate to an individual's emotional processing (particularly relating to overwhelming feeling) that inhibits the ability to provide an answer. A delayed reaction can also be a function of a second thought about an idea. An individual's subjectivity shapes his or her style of communication, thus holding the potential to shape the nature of his or her reactions.
