Two types of ineffective listening skills that I have trouble with are pseudo listening and defensive listening. Pseudo listening is defined as what happens when someone pretends to listen during a conversation while attempting to disguise inattention to the message(1) This occurs for a variety of reasons some being laziness (you don’t feel like putting in the effort to listen), avoidance (you don’t want to hear what they have to say), or poor skills (you don’t know how to listen) (2) For me it happens because I have other things on my mind or I am just not interested in the topic of conversation. Talking to my mother is a prime example of me being a pseudo listener. She always has some word of advice that is unsolicited or an opinion
Rose was in the vocational education program in is high school and didn't need to be. Mike Rose attended an all boy religion based school called Our Lady of Mercy. Previous to entering this school he had to take a placement exam and somehow his exam got mixed up with another kid named Rose. Apparently the other Rose needed to be in the vocational program and as a result Mike was placed there. Being that his parents didn't know much about the American school system, he couldn't know much about it, and he continued to attend the vocational program not knowing that he shouldn't be in it.
S: I dislike how you think that it’s ok to be so passive to world events sometimes. It’s unfair because you criticize people for the situations that they are in, such as the people who are on public assistance, and you never thought about their struggles. You only see how their need affects you in a negative way. A: Some people are just lazy. They don’t want to get up in the morning to look for a job, so they take the easy way out.
In the story; it seems to be missing his rejections of offers, because its as though most of the benefits in the story has been made to be sarcastic. The story has a bitter sense to it as if he forcing himself to accepts all the benefits, because if not; he may seem ungrateful and not accepting of his
I feel so bad to myself about my situation. I don’t have such problem when it comes to speak in my language but why am I having this weakness in English? I’m really scared of standing up and speaking up while my classmates haven’t even got one word of all I have said. It seems like my word are new for them because of my
For example hating ‘Phonies’ when he him self is one, as well as hating those who repeat themselves as he does the entire book! One of the things I disagreed with was how he said that it “touches adolescents’ emotional buttons without putting their minds to work. It’s easy for them.” This is what I thought the book would be. However this was not the case. The book was totally uninteresting to me and it took a lot of work for me to make myself read it.
I have many times questioned myself as what to say or not to say. It is a bigger mistake not to say anything, but we should be educated on what to say. We will not always say the right thing, but we should learn how to learn from our mistakes. One common mistake that I have made often was not knowing what to say, so I just kept quiet. I was confronted from a co-worker that I was rude and stuck up.
And honestly, I wasn't sure some of my friends in high school were Christian or not or rather or not they practiced any religion. They knew I was a Christian because I didn't keep it a secret. I thank God that they respected me for that but slowly I began to lose some friends and I wasn't invited to many parties anymore. Though I lost some friends, I didn't get discouraged or think that I will never have friends. I always knew that God lets things happen for a reason.
As I still continue to read the ignorant article, I come towards the abusive language when you comment and say “there are so many of the bastards”. The way you use the abusive language is very harsh. If you had done your research, you would have found out that homelessness is caused by many didn’t things such as parents, friends or relatives unwilling or unable to continue to accommodate them, relationship breakdown, including domestic violence, unemployment and loss of an assured short hold tenancy. Along with many different reasons, why people are homeless, which you never implied to use. Nevertheless, I have never seen anyone be so harsh by talking about themselves, it will make everything better.
But really, how can you expect anything else from such a mischievous and playful creature. This behavior often resulted in the other creatures spreading malign things about them. This doesn’t help them any in being more accepted. Now, most people never believe me when I tell this story, they often find it very bogus. I, however, find this a momentous story with a hidden message that is
