To differentiate between values, attitude and opinions is not easy task for a person. So far values are concerned, values represent the history and civilization of a particular society, country and religion. Different countries have different values and in the same way different religions have different values. If we compare Eastern and Western civilizations, we will find a hell of difference between their values. In the same way if we compare values between different religions, we will notice a great deal of difference.
Attitude means a personal behavior of an individual towards other people, society, country and religion. Every individual has different thoughts and values in his mind, so his attitude differs from others.
So far opinions are concerned, they may be from any individual, a group of people, a society and any country. Those opinions may be positive or negative; it depends upon the conditions, circumstances and relationships with other people, societies and countries. These opinions may lead a particular person, society or country to develop good or bad relationships with other individuals, societies and countries. Good opinions may lead towards friendship and bad opinions may lead towards war. I hope this explanation will justify my answer and you will feel satisfied.

It is necessary to adapt the message to the views and mental filter of the receiver. Effectiveness of communication mainly depends on the values, attitudes, opinions and emotions of the communicators. It is a fact that every person and every organization has a unique filter and special interests. The values, attitude, opinions and mental frame of the readers always affect their response. Miscommunication occurs when the sender and the receiver have different values, attitudes and opinions. People react well to a message if it agrees with their views or if it favourable or desirable. Their response may be otherwise if the message fails to accommodate their interest.

A person's own interest and attitude are important but, more important is to keep in mind the receiver's possible reactions. Incorrect or inadequate information can never serve the purpose of communication. Very often, the rigidity or close-mindedness of the receiver makes him unable to understand the intended meanings of the message. Similarly, the credibility of the sender is also very important in this regard and it helps the receiver to understand the meanings of the message.

Life's stresses also affect our ability to send effective messages and color our responses and color our responses when we receive them.
