Peripheral route processing
Peripheral route processing occurs when message interpretation characterized by consideration of the source and related general information rather than of the message itself.
Instead, factors that are irrelevant or extraneous to the issue, such as who is providing the message, how long the arguments are, or the emotional appeal of the arguments, influence them.
