How to become a good communicator?

Have you ever talked with a friend about a problem only to realize that he just doesn't seem to grasp why the issue is so important to you?

Have you ever presented an idea to a group and it's met with utter confusion?
Or maybe you have been in an argument when th other person suddenly accuses you of not listening to what they are saying at all?

What's oing on here ?

The answer is mis communication, and in some form or another, we have all experienced it.

The fact is even when face-tp-face with another person, in the way same room, and speaking the same language, human communication is incredibly complex.

The communication is a two street.

Three: take tie to understand as you try to be understood.

In the rush to exprss ourselves, it's easy to forget that communication is a two-way street.

Be ope to what the other person might say.

And finally, four: be aware if your personal perceptual filters.

Elements if your exprience, including your culture, communitu, and family, influence how you see the world.

Say, "This is how I see the problem, but how do you see it ?"

Don't asume that your perception is the objective truth.

That'll help you work toward sharing a dialogue with others to reach a common understanding together.

Different people have different mindstes and may hae different understangdings of the same thing. This is why miscommunication always happens. Have you had this kind of experience? What should we do when we are misunderstood by others?

Yes. I agree with you. Most of the sitution you want to express something using second language is not easy to lt people to know what you really want to talk about!

Yes, I know what you're talking about. I have been studying interpersonal communication for many years.  For each person there are people, with whom communication goes without interference and you get the exact meaning, even if words seem strange from the first sight (I don't know if it makes sense!:)) And there are people whom more difficult to understand.... But, being patient, all possible, of course. :)

And studying translating, I noticed, that not only you have to translate sometimes from English into Russian, but also from Russian into Russian!!:)
