What, contradictions occurred between the nonverbal cues and the verbal message and how did the contradictions impact the interaction? One nonverbal cue used by Jan is her looking him in the eyes and another nonverbal cue is when she points at him. One nonverbal cue Ken uses is when he pats her knee to begin with and another is when he leans back and puts his arms on the back of the couch. The verbal messages used by both are they both get offensive, because they both got defensive it ended bad to where now they feel like they can’t tell each other things in private. 4.
From the point of view of Carol, she wanted help from Professor John in order to raise her grade (Oleanna 1). However, she misinterpreted Professor Johns help into sexual, verbal, and physical harassment (Mamet 1). Both professor and student have had their own fair share of misinterpretation, and this caused things to get out of hand quickly. Both characters could have done things, in order to make things simpler and easier for the other person to understand their point of view. Professor John could have taken into mind how his actions would affect Carol, and he could have taken into consideration the effects of his actions.
Later Sara goes to Hitch’s house to say she is sorry but he just blows her off. The next time they meet they actually get the chance to talk and work things out. I believe that if Sara and Hitch would have sat down and talked to work things out a whole lot sooner they would have had a better understanding of each other sooner rather than later. He could have explained to her what his job was all about and what he did. When she found out about what he did she would not have been surprised and could have prepared herself better.
As the man continued on, Jig entertained his ideas. It is clear to the reader through her responses she does not want the operation whatever it may be, saying “Then I’ll do it. I don’t care about me” (280). This response solidifies to the reader that she is opposed to the operation, yet the man does not understand her objection. He continues to push the subject by coaxing her, saying “I’ll do anything for you” (281), trying to guilt her to his point of view.
The aggressive communication can be carried out by verbal attack on others or nonverbal behaviors like slamming the door or charts, but Robin only use the verbal attack. Robin threw the verbal storm toward the nurse aide by expressing her true thinking in an aggressive and unprofessional way, and she did not show any respect to other people's feeling. Rashad used the passive-aggressive style by avoiding the direct conflict with the staff nurse. He might not want to lose his new job, so he kept quiet with the anger building up deep down inside. He had plans of future revenges toward Robin.
Rashad: Passive Communication to Passive-aggressive communication Rashad chose to use passive communication at first because he didn’t respond to Robin. He stayed quiet and instead started to plan a way to get back at Robin for the way she spoke to him. When Rashad started to planning, this type of communication would be a passive-aggressive style of communication. The communication in the meeting was not effective between Rashad and Robin. Rashad was left not having his role explained to him, and now Rashad’s attention is on getting back Robin for what she did to him, instead of patient care being first.
If your client were to confide in you that he or she were getting emotionally abused by a family member but wanted you to keep it a secret and you agreed to do so, imagine if that client went on to suffer major trauma as a result from you not voicing your concerns, resulting in further abuse by that family member. It is extremely important that you do not give your client false hope. They must understand that you are there to support and listen to them if need be, however if they stress alarming concerns, such as abuse, they then must be made aware that you have no other choice but to report it back to your line manager where such information will be dealt in a confidential and professional manner. In the long run, it all comes down to protecting yourself and those you work for and with. This can include either your clients or colleagues.
What can the reader infer about the speaker or the speaker’s attitude from the word choice, and how does it connect to tone? When analyzing syntax, consider such questions as: Are the sentences simple and direct, or complex and convoluted? How do dependent clauses relate to main clauses? Does the author use repetition or parallel structure for emphasis? Does the author write periodic or cumulative sentences?
The author is trying to get people to put their character ethics into perspective by introducing, in laymen’s terms, the foundations and skills which will help to build these characters but without the religious interventions. The overview of the book tries to prepare you so that when you get to the first habit, you will have a better understanding of how the habits came about. It explains the differences of the personality ethics most people possess today instead of the character ethics we were born with. It starts with some common problems that most people can relate to. Then it goes through the history of character ethics and how society seemed to have lost these ethics to personality ethics.
Den’s interest is further shown when he says “I’ve been thinking about you – quite a bit.” Which is followed by Barbara’s rejection; “shocking bloody view – look at that” which is completely unrelated to what he has said to her. The audience can see that any relationship between the two would end badly because they clearly do not communicate well. Den does not assert himself, and allows Barbara to monopolise the conversation, even though it is obvious that he wants to talk about them rather than the meaningless small talk that Barbara is insisting on. It is through these interactions that we can see that the dialogue in the first scene is integral to the audience’s understanding of the relationship between Den and Barbara. The symbolism in the first scene also works to develop our understanding of the relationship
