Things that are better than not communicating

Things that are better than not communicating

Here is a short list of things that are sometimes trained out of people at all costs.

Some are good, some are bad, some are neutral. All of them are better than not communicating:

  • Yelling
  • Screaming
  • Being rude
  • Speaking with odd syntax
  • Depending on technology
  • Using technology even when you’re somewhat capable of using your mouth to make words
  • Speaking in broken words one syllable at a time
  • Speaking without eye contact
  • Waving your hands while you talk
  • Misusing pronouns
  • Sitting with an odd posture
  • Making sounds and pointing
  • Repeating phrases from TV
  • Repeating the same answer over and over
  • Having exaggerated facial expressions
  • Having facial expressions that don’t match the words you’re saying
  • Saying a lot of nonsense words before you get to the meaningful words
  • Telling stories rather than directly explaining what you’re talking about
