Reboot People Skills

RebootImage this, before texting came along, people had a difficult time communicating face-to-face.  Now even the shyest person can ask out someone if they have the right digits and a cellphone.

Robert Boldton, Ph.D in his book People Skills writes that ineffective communication causes an interpersonal gap that is experienced in all facets of life and in all sectors of society.

Texting and the constant need to be hooked into a wifi-socialization notification ping pong match is not helping  to close this interpersonal gap Boldton describes. And his book is copyrighted in 1979.

Most people are not good at active listening.  Active listening is difficult.  We all do this – not listen intently enough to actually understand what another person is saying.

We might pretend to listen.  But we likely let our minds wander.  It might be what to do for lunch, that the person smells like garlic, or we pretend merely to listen until there is a pause and we can start to talk about what we want to say in words and gestures.

And if you are more intent on waiting for the next notification ping to sound or vibrate, then how intent can you ever really be?  The tenderness and intimacy is lost.

    2. Alternate ideas to get money to help unemployed.1) Cut mindef budget – defence budget is increasing by 6% despite recession. It is 11.4+billion. Last year was $10.6 b. If you cap defence spending, at 10.6b, you save almost 1b to fund whatever other program to help unemployed2) Cut Ministerial salaries further – can save a couple of millions to top up $50 – $100 per CPF medisave account for unemployed aged 45 and aboveI can think of this without the benefit of admin officers, civil servants etc…. How come the gahmen with all their resources at their disposal cannot or more importantly, would not?

    3. Absolutnie nie mam/mamy niczego za złe:)Tutaj ewidentnie nawaliło Muzeum Śląskie.Tłumaczenie że materiały reklamowe poszły do druki zanim wypożyczyli od nas fotografie i palmy trochę niedorzeczne. Drukując ulotki nie wiedzieli co chcą pokazać?Materiał o ufo rewelacyjny! W sumie szkoda że nie wylądowało:)Może wtedy poprawiło by się otoczenie samego zamku jak i jego wnętrze które jest już mocno nadszarpnięte przez ząb czasu.

    5. precisely misstickly,it appears to be two different versions but won’t it be difficult to get any governing authority to subpeona based on an image of a document, even if there are two different versions; don’t we need hard copies?I will post the Photoshop images on ScribD later today showing how the letterhead is different.

    7. Thank you, I’ve recently been looking for information approximately this topic for a long time and yours is the greatest I’ve found out till now. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you certain concerning the supply?

    8. Ja po prostu chcę wspomnieć, że jestem początkujący do blogów i rzeczywiście smakował swoją stronę. Prawdopodobnie jestem prawdopodobnie do zakładki witryny . Na pewno pochodzą z wybitnych artykułów i recenzji. Pozdrowienia dla dzieląc swoją stronę.

    9. Hej signe 😀 jag har börjat bli intresserad av att modella osv, och du är min inspiration 🙂 du har världens snyggaste kropp, ansikte, allt! Jag förstÃ¥r att man inte vill säga sin vikt helt rakt ut kanske pÃ¥ sin blogg men skulle du kunna säga 45-50 lr ngt sÃ¥daant annars? Du är världens vackraste och min idol, kram :)<333

    10. “The MRAs have come out in force to spew nastiness all over your site Greg.”Looks to me like they’ve been rather respectful, but have not been given the respect of receiving so much as a reply to the new information.

    2. magnifique, grandiose, extraordinaire, avec malgré tout le son Pink Floyd sans Gilmour, MAIS…… mais je n’ai jamais aimé cette idée de venir coller le concept du ‘Mur’ de Waters sur celui de Berlin, qui n’avait rien à voir avec. Ça m’a fait, et me fait encore, l’effet d’un coup de promo opportuniste.____________________________Il est rai que le Mur de Waters n’a pas grand chose à voir avec celui de Berlin…FrÂ

    3. Me uno al alud de comentarios de quejas con ellos. NO relataré mi experiencia pues hay muchas ya similares e igual de negativas, si no quereis que os den las vacaciones llamad por teléfono a las compañias y preguntad, que os lo expliquen todo bien pues esta gente ya veis que no son de fiar. Yo desde luego nunca mas con ellos y eso que he alquilado muchos coches, pero estos se llevan la palma de estafadores.

    4. Cue the OMG, I loooove Urth!!! They make the BEST bread pudding ever. Superb for breakfast. Did you know I lived on La Jolla and Melrose just down the street? I used to joke living in Sacramento that I would fly to LA for the day just to get breakfast at Urth, shop at the Fairfax Flea Market, grab dinner by the ocean and head home.

    5. Tiger – Copy and paste the text into the box. Include “blockquote” between “” on either side of the text and include “blockquote” with “” after the quote. I can’t actually type an example here, or it will just disapear and create the indention you’re asking about. If it’s not clear, just Google “HTML code blockquote” and click on the first link. It has a good example.

    6. Is web marketing much easier or possibly harder in the present day for you ? I personally feel that it has become a lot more “competent”, as a result half-arsed methods will not do these days. Ten years back, tossing an amateur blog to the web and several unpolished Adwords campaigns would certainly cut it mainly because … actually, because pretty much everything was indeed amateur’ish. Today, retailers plus customers have elevated the level, and you just better become a expert if you wish to stand out.

    7. This health care bill is a disaster, a corrupt monstrosity, created by a traitorous party.And we all deserve it, due to our failure to see after our poor, and help the sick. Our pig headedness, our refusal to deal with changing times and economic realites, have cost us dearly. Time and again, we had ample opportunity, to muster a better plan. But selfishness and ignorance won every fight. God has judged us for this, as a nation, and as a people.

    8. As would-be conservative activists withdraw from party politics in protest, the parties naturally drift toward the less principled positions of those who remain.What utter freaking hog wash.The Republican Party’s drifting away from principled positions is the reason we are withdrawing from the Party, not the result.

    9. Thanks for your fascinating article. Other thing is that mesothelioma is generally the result of the inhalation of fibers from asbestos fiber, which is a very toxic material. It can be commonly witnessed among personnel in the engineering industry who definitely have long contact with asbestos. It is caused by living in asbestos covered buildings for a long period of time, Genes plays a huge role, and some individuals are more vulnerable for the risk in comparison with others.

    10. Huhu rundumkiel,was mir nicht ganz gewahr ist: wie kam sie noch Mal auf Dich?Ãœber manche Menschen kann man wirklich nur den Kopf schütteln, wie dämlich sie sind. Und ich meine nicht, die armen alten Leutschens, die auf den Enkeltrick reinfallen, sondern exakt solchen, hüstel “Blondchen”In diesem Sinne, freitägliche Grüße von der Erdbbeere.

    1. … Desculpem a ignorancia ,de onde veio este jovem avançado chamado CLARO ?”O Claro veio dos Dragões Sandinenses para os iniciados de 1º ano.”Anónimo said… Por onde anda ,um jovem,tambem av,ah§adoacÃamndo VITOR ALVES?” Boa pergunta, pelas fichas de jogo parece que não tem jogado, e por vezes nem tem sido convocado.Quanto ao Caetano, Cardoso e Dias, parece que não se trata de perguntas mas sim de opiniões, e quento a isso nada tenho a dizer.Já respondi?

    3. I have been using adsense for long time and I think adsense is best. I started using adbrite, the space was blank for some time. when i checked with adbrite they told me that they don’t have ad to publish in India. Can u please suggest which is best to go along with adsense

    4. Scuze ca iti raspund asa tarziu. Poti pune roiurile intr-un stup cat mai repede nu e o problema. Vopseste scandurele de stup in culori diferite si eventual fa niste forme geometrice diferite deasupra fiecaruia ca sa rezolvi in parte problema cu ratacirea matcilor. Eu am facut urdinisul pe pereti diferiti ca sa nu am am problema asta. Ce mai poti face e sa fixezi o scandura verticala intre cele doua urdinisuri ca sa le mai desparti un pic. Multa bafta! Nu ai de ce sa ai emotii. ierneaza mai bine doua familii intr-un stup – isi imprumuta reciproc caldura.

    5. Roligt att se en uppdatering i alla fall…;) Och stort grattis till nya jobbet! Svackor har vi alla, mer eller mindre, och med tanke pÃ¥ hur positiv och energisk du är för det mesta sÃ¥ tror jag nog att omgivningen stÃ¥r ut med att du inte är pÃ¥ topp hela tiden

    6. Yeah, with a government who doesn’t seem to give a didly squat about Holocaust survivors and the disabled, how can they give a hoot about people over age 50 ( or over age 40 or even 30 for that matter)??The whole leadership in power is corrupt; but any who replace them may be corrupt as well. And now they want to ‘freeze’ old age pensions as well!I think the whole situation is frozen – as well as rotten!

    7. sayfanıza dünyanın en tehlikeli yolundan baÅŸlamış olmam nasıl bir iÅŸaret?? inanılmaz pozitif ve insanı gezmeye, görmeye , hayatı yakalamaya teÅŸvik eden paylaşımlar için teÅŸekkürler…hayallerinin peÅŸinden gidebilme cesareti ve gücü için sizi ayrıca tebrik ederim…sevgiler…

    8. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks

    9. All in all, pretty good. I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with the era, although I was slightly taken aback by the sexism. One thing annoyed me though, Pete, the Account Executive, looked about 14 not 26. I hope he gets killed off.

    10. Was mich an dieser Geschichte berührt (gehen wir mal davon aus, dass sie stimmt), ist gerade die Tatsache, dass einer wie Du und ich (also gebildet, finanziell irgendwie ok, Familie) abrutscht, wo man doch denkt, der ist eigentlich nicht gefährdet. Mit 17jährigen, omaschupsenden, cduwählenden, schuleabgebrochenen Ladendieben habe ich kaum Berührungspunkte. Auch wenn beide arme Kerle sind

    11. See how much I know? I didn’t think forsythia grew in the south. We always had it in NJ growing up and I have a few pieces of artificial forsythia, but other than that I’ve never seen it in Texas. Most be too warm for it in my part of the state. Happy Pink Saturday!

    12. oh! and i meant to say that i was definitely interested in going to Bible college. I’m kind of interested in being a missionary, but I feel like I wouldn’t have enough guts and i would fail. And people let me down so much I have fallen in love with cute little children. So i was thinking something with kids….or like a special needs school for kids

    13. I hear you. I'm not sure why they feel the need to fix something that isn't broken. I also have trouble with why they have someone who has no understanding of how homeschooling works coming up with these "suggestions". Hopefully HSLDA and a united front of NS homeschoolers will be all over this before it has a chance to take any kind of root.

  3. dit :Moi ce que j’en retiens, c’est que vous êtes vachement discours dans la famille. Hier c’était toi, au2ourd&#8j17;hui c’est lui, et à chaque fois qu’il y a le mot discours dans un de tes billets, à la fin t’es fatiguée.Alors peut-être qu’il faudrait songer à arrêter les dicours hein, ça vous reposerait
