I don’t interconnect with my pledge brothers how I should. These are the reasons why. Opening myself up to people become difficult at times. When I am inside of a new environment it takes me time to warm up and allow people to see the true me. My reasoning is because most don’t understand me, and they take my demeanor as cockiness.
We care mostly because we’re scared. We’re worried about how others will perceive us. This constant worrying lowers our self-confidence. We are so concerned about others’ opinions of us that sometimes we lose ourselves in the process. We’ll act how we expect other people to act, and in doing so we aren’t true to ourselves.
You get rushed and preoccupied, and you stop taking the perspective of the other person, precisely because the two of you are so close.” Being rushed and not going in depth in conversations and only making short statements is a key in miscommunication. “Communication is complex; it requires a number of skills and both ongoing learning and practice to improve our skills. Misunderstandings occur frequently, and they can cause problems in relationships.” (Sole, 2011). Having my husband not understand what I mean by such a short statement is something that I expect since he is my husband. Yet I would not expect someone that isn’t as close to me to immediately grasp what it is I am trying to get across.
Things are not rational and have a tendency to become clouded and unclear. If this happens, it is best to step back from the situation and wait until your emotions have calmed. I for one, have much experience as an emotional thinker, and it has caused me nothing but anguish. As Ridel (2015) described, "There are shaping agents that hinder our thinking skills to become critical thinkers" (p.27). I have learned from my mistakes and improved my ability to calm my emotions and carry on a mature conversation, without ruining it by having an emotional outburst due to my bias opinions on the matter at hand.
This is how Emerson sees consistency; he is very much against it and looks down upon those who do not change their minds. Honesty has a lot to do with the consistency part of Emerson’s piece. Many people may be afraid to be inconsistent because they fear others will fear they are being dishonest. They have an opinion on something one day, and then the next it is changed. Some can see this as being dishonest and many people in society fear this.
They also struggled with understanding the difference between their ‘best alternative’ and the lens assigned ‘best alternative’. Ethical lenses adopted by individuals tend to influence decision making by affecting how problems and conflicts are approached. Your ethical lens of preference makes you ‘blind’ to the other approaches and makes it difficult to see the benefits of the other lenses and weaknesses of your own lens. This adds tension to groups because what seems like the best solution to a problem to a single team member might be completely inappropriate to another. The team found that these different approaches can create more issues within a team or group if you don’t understand that everyone has their own ‘right approach.’ To a rights and responsibilities lens approaching an issue head on and dealing with the conflict directly might not be fun, but it is necessary in order to move past the problem in the most efficient way possible.
Sarah Watt proves that dishonesty can affect others as well as yourself. It can cause an individual to suppress their emotion which will inevitably lead to larger problems. The text implies that honesty will reveal itself soon enough, but it often forced out at the last possible opportunity. This release of honesty is caused by the characters hidden emotions, but can result in a revelation to begin correcting the problems within their
By not using the correct words I can imply a completely different message than the one that needed to be presented. If I use the wrong tone of voice I can also be communicating the wrong message. Due to the language barriers that I work with daily I need to be sensitive to the simplicity of what I am communicating. If I make things too complex I will only evoke frustration and anger in the employees I am addressing. In doing so I will not be showing them Christ through me.
One reason is that we always think that these things are not worthy to judge, another reason is that we usually do the same thing as them and we don’t like to face the dark side of ourselves. However, when we experience a lot of unfair treatment or pressure, we may become to be depressive and like to complaint or even curse, which is the hotbed for extremity and evil. From now on, the gate of unscrupulous is opening, and our happiness index is sharp declining and is hard to get a favorable
Also non-verbal types of communication can be taken the wrong way as people interpret messages wrong as they don’t have tone of voice to direct them or the fact that people often use short hand when texting which can be misunderstood. In professional places we often use acronyms that can make understanding conversations difficult. In meetings where parents and carers are present it is important not to use there acronyms as it could cause an alienation of the parents and carers who we really need to keep onside. I have attended meetings where I have felt out of
