How We Talk To Others Says More About Us Than We Realise

As humans, we love to communicate with one another. Once we have learnt how to talk, there is no stopping us from having conversations.

Words Will Never Hurt Me

One of the main ways to understand a person is to watch them interact with someone that is considered to be beneath them. The easiest way to do this is to go to a cafe or restaurant.

Think Before You Speak

I have written before about the way people talk saying more about them than they realise. The same is also true of the way you speak to other people. When you communicate with someone else, you are exposing a piece of yourself to them.

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

Gossiping is essentially pointless. You are talking about someone who is not present at that time. Often, the main reason for talking about someone like this is to make you feel better about yourself.
