Özet

The aim of this study is to explore the effect of "body image perception" and "self-consistency" on communication skills. The study was patterned in a general screening model style, and the data was collected cross-sectional. A sample of 308 participants was determined using the simple random sampling method. According to the results, the participants' body image perception affects communication skills by 24.2%, and the participants' self-consistency affects their communication skills by 2.3%. A positively significant relationship is found between body image and self-consistency. It has been found that women are more competent in terms of communication skills than men. This study examines communication skills extensively in terms of self-consistency and body image. In this aspect, it offers a new look at the literature. The results show that discourses from the outside environment affect body image, but body image also affects communication skills. The current findings contribute to the emerging literature as it addresses the impact of body image on communication skills.
