Factors affecting perspective in Communication
Our perspective in communication can be influenced by a variety of factors, including past experiences, prejudices, feelings, and environment. Here is a closer look at how these factors can affect our communication:
- Past experiences: Our past experiences can shape the way we perceive and interpret communication. For example, if we have had negative experiences with a particular topic, we may be less receptive to messages related to that topic. On the other hand, positive experiences can make us more open to communication on that topic.
- Prejudices: Prejudices, or preconceived notions about individuals or groups, can affect how we communicate with others. If we have biases against a particular group, we may be less likely to listen to their perspectives or give them the benefit of the doubt.
- Feelings: Our current emotional state can affect our communication by influencing our tone of voice, body language, and word choice. For example, if we are feeling angry or frustrated, we may be more likely to communicate in an aggressive or confrontational manner.
- Environment: The environment in which communication takes place can also affect our perspective. For example, a noisy or distracting environment may make it difficult to focus on the conversation, while a calm and comfortable environment may promote more productive communication.
To improve our communication in light of these factors, it is important to be aware of our own biases and emotional states, and to work to overcome them. We can do this by actively listening to others, being open to new perspectives, and trying to see things from the other person’s point of view. Additionally, creating a comfortable and conducive environment for communication can help to promote more productive conversations.
