60 outpatients were interviewed using a standardized interview. As viewed from an interaction chronograph framework, doctor-patient reactions consist of 2 stable factors for any individual: how long on the average he or she waits or remains silent before communicating, the number and average duration of each of these communicative interactions. Other factors were evident, however, further evidence seems necessary for validity. The study represents the smallest number of factors which can account for interview interaction behavior as assessed by the interaction chronograph. 18 references.
