Humans are social creatures who need good communication to interact with other individuals. This study aims to understand the influence of family communication patterns (conversation and conformity) on communication apprehension moderated by the adolescent’s extraversion personality. An instrument is the Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA-24), Revised Family Communication Patterns Instrument (RFCP), and International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) NEO-120. The result showed that pattern of conversation has a negative effect (ß = -0.620, p = 0.000) and conformity has a positive effect (ß = 0.730, p = 0.008) on communication apprehension. Conversation orientation is a relationship between family members who emphasize freedom in expressing an opinion. Meanwhile, the application of conformity family communication patterns is more oriented toward children’s independence. Extraversion personality can decrease the influence of the communication patterns conversation and conformity to communication apprehension. Communication apprehension moderated by extraversion personality in the adolescent is influenced by the application of the conformity family communication pattern.
