Barriers To True Understanding and Successful Communications On Facebook and Other Social Media” that even the best martial artist or instructor might have
Step #1 – What is the purpose of interacting on social media? What is your personal objective and what are you trying to get out of it?
– Is it to ask a pertinent question to learn something you did not know at the beginning of that conversation, to be a seeker of knowledge?
– Or is it to impart your personal point of view into the conversation?
– Or is it to correct something that is questionable to you?
Step #2 – What are the barriers that prevent you from true understanding and successful communications on Facebook and other social media? .
There are 3 meanings to any message;
– What is said
– What is heard
– The True meaning
So what are some of the causes for difficulty in getting to the true meaning and this lack of understanding and inability to communicate effectively?
– Complete misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the original message
– Not reading all of the material all the way through
– Getting emotional and responding without thinking it through completely
– Jumping to conclusions without verifying all of the information
– Allowing personal pride to interfere with the response
– Not recognizing the credibility or authority of the author
– Just looking to pick a fight with anybody
– Varying degree of knowledge and education
– Different levels of experience
Remember, it is not your fault. There is a spectrum of people out there and they all have their own take on what is being said. Some are intelligent, some are not so intelligent, and then there are the ones in between. It doesn’t matter what is actually being said, it is how some people perceive it
Step #3 – Proper etiquette on social media states that you don’t be verbally abusive to others, use profanity, and keep a level of civility. Unfortunately not everyone takes this advice to heart and always follows these rules.
Step #4 – For true understanding, when you respond to something you see on Facebook or other social media, try to assume, not accept, assume what is being said is true for a moment, no matter how outrageous it sounds to you and then try to imagine what is true about it, before you respond. For successful communications, construct what you are writing to allow everyone reading it to be able to assume that what you are saying is true and what could be true about it.
All the best Holiday wishes to everyone,
