We used words to communicate with each other. So we used some words and patterns in day to day works. If we didn’t want to give a silent message, most of the expressions could be realized. But there are some miscommunication incidents happens in some moments while somethings are hilarious. Lack of inability to express what we really want to say leads to misunderstanding among the people.
The Publication Hub brings you some cases where people were taking stuff too literally. Let’s hope that the instructor will care about the words than being frustrated about the command.
As per the scholars, if you have no idea about what you say, the listener will not be able to get you. So in order to be a successful communicator you have a clear picture of purpose is and make it clear to yourself first.
On the other hand, you need a good listener on the other end. And he or she should focus on the information that you provided at the moment.
This effective communication is not only for understanding purposes but also for forming relationships that stay long last.
