Conversation, coupling and complexity: Matching Scaling Laws Predict Performance in a Joint Decision Task

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearchpeer-review


We investigate the linguistic co-construction of interpersonal synergies. By applying a measure of coupling between complex systems to an experimentally elicited corpus of joint decision dialogues, we show that interlocutors’ linguistic behavior displays increasing signature of multi-scale coupling, known as complexity matching, over the course of interaction. Furthermore, we show that stronger coupling corresponds with more effective interaction, as measured by collective task performance.
