How Couples Communicate

...How Couples Communicate (Resource: Secrets to Lasting Love, by Gary Smalley)Every relationship is a journey ... through five levels of communication … toward the desired destination of intimacy. This requires effort! Intimacy often does not come naturally because men and women are inherently different. Men tend to desire more independence, whereas women more social interaction.There are five levels of communication: | (1) CLICHES - Typical, routine, oft repeated comments, questions and answers given out of habit and with no real forethought or genuine intent. "How are you?" "Fine." "Having a good day?" "Yes."(2) FACTS - Information/Statistics about the weather, the office, friends, the news, personal activities, etc. Requires no in depth thinking or feeling.(3) OPINIONS - Includes concerns, expectations, and personal goals, dreams, and desires. Due to differences of opinion that naturally arise between two people, especially between men and women, this is typically the level at which we run into the "wall of conflict."(4) FEELINGS - Having gone through the "wall of conflict" via applying the communication skills following, you both feel safe to share your deepest emotions.(5) NEEDS - The deepest level of communication and intimacy where you feel completely safe to reveal your unique needs with each other. Truly, unless needs are known and met, a couple will remain "strangers." | Many lacking the skills to make it through the "wall of conflict" revert back to the first two......

How Men and Women Communicate Differently

... 08/30/2012 How men and women communicate differently? “Man and women are different”, everybody knows that. But when it is about communication, those differences multiply themselves. According to Richard Drobnick, from Mars and Venus counseling center, “he (men) believes that communication should have a clear purpose” while “she (women) uses communication to discover how she is feeling”. It means that men communicate looking for an answer or solution while women communicate to share their feelings and to learn more about their listener. The way men and women communicate with their own gender is different too. Men use lots of trash talk, showing some kind of need to keep themselves at the top of the power hierarchy, and women chitchat and gossip, showing their need to talk about others and share their emotions about it. All those communicating differences can affect the work environment as well. According to Beth banks and Roz Usheroff (authors of “How men and women communicate differently at work”), “male sometimes ask few questions, fearing that doing so will communicate to others that they don`t know something”, meaning that men always want to be the intelligent one people will ask questions for, while woman don`t need this kind of prestige and “try to maintain an appearance of equality among everyone”. To sum up, there are differences between the way genders communicate and it can affect their lives and work. There are also...

How to Communicate Effectively

...How to Communicate Effectively With Any Learning Style NAME Foundations of General Education and Professional Success / GEN/200 September 16, 2011 PROFFESSOR’S NAME Abstract In 1938 Howard Gardner a Harvard University professor changed the way intelligence and learning is perceived with his theory of multiple intelligences (Carter, Bishop, & Kravits, 2007). According to Professor Gardner, there are eight different intelligences and each of these them have different characteristics that affect the way we perceive things and learn. His research also discovered that we all have multiple intelligences and that the way we learn and communicate directly depends on which of our intelligences are most developed (Carter, Bishop, & Kravits, 2007). Of the eight different Intelligences, this paper will focus on only three, Intrapersonal, Verbal-Linguistic, and Visual-Spatial). This paper will attempt to explore how individuals with each of these intelligences can effectively communicate within a group environment, and will also explore the different personality types and how individuals with these personality types can effectively communicate and contribute to any team or group. How to Communicate Effectively With Any Learning Style A Harvard University professor named Howard Gardner discovered in 1983 that there are at least eight intelligences that everyone possesses, but he also stated that some intelligences are more or less developed than others...

How Films Communicate

...How Films Communicate Movie: Secondhand Lions, 2003 Time and Place: This movie is set back in 1962 in the Texas countryside. The house where Walter is staying with his great-uncles is a worn down ranch style home. It looks very poor and there are not many modern-looking things inside the house to include a T.V. His great-uncles are very reclusive and do not have many visitors except the brave salesman that stop by to try to sell them things. Costume: Their clothes are worn out looking and seem to be the wrong size half of the time. They are baggy pants with plain looking button up shirts with suspenders holding everything together. Their boots are old and worn out looking, something you would typically see on a farm style ranch. Set Design: The set, except for a few scenes are mostly taken outside the house in their corn field, barn or front porch. The barn and porch seem to be falling apart and continue to give you the sense that these uncles don't take care of their house. Describe the atmosphere created by the combination of film elements and how they contributed o your liking or disliking the movie: The atmosphere created is that of a poor family living back in the 1960's. The house that they live in is worn down and it seems everything else around them looks as if it want to fall apart as well. The characters do a great job with portraying their certain characters and characteristics and make you think you are actually back in time. With all......

Changing How People and Businesses Communicate

...and also collaboration(47 Kim and Solomon). • Differentiate store-and-forward communications from real-time communications. (How do store-and-forward communications differ from real-time communications?) Real-time communications can instantly communicate with other. For example, instant messenger like MSN (R.I.P.) google hangout, Whatsapp; audio and video conference software like Skype. Store-and-forward communications require recording and upload to the server. One can download it to see it or hear the message or information. For instance, voice mail and email. • Recognize the impact of the Internet on how people and businesses communicate. (Summarize the impact of the internet on how people and businesses communicate according to the book and your own observations.) Internet plays an important role in communication. It is really common to chat or video call online. Writing a birthday letter for friends? Too old-schooled! We could use email or Facebook for that. Video call or voice call to the one oversea is not a dream. All we need is internet, fast one I guess. Working online together is quite impressive to me. Normally we have to sit together and work. Now, we could do our work, share it, give advice, and fix it in the internet like google drive. The book gives many examples about connecting to other when we do in need in urgent. Business part of it, it provides better customer service. In short, there are lots of ways and easier to contact other. • Align......

How Actors Contribute to a Film

...HOW ACTORS CONTRIBUTE TO A FILM Actors are a vital contribution to a film, for without the actors there would be no film. To become an actor, one must possess a great deal of talent. This person must be able to portray the character as described by the director, and make the audience believe the reality of this character, not only by the words they speak in his or her respective roles, but by their emotions, facial expressions, and physical movements. This person must also be able to grab and hold the attention of the audience, and keep them entertained. What is the goal of acting? The ultimate goal of any actor should be to make the audience completely believe in the reality of the character. (Boggs & Petrie, 2008) There many ways, also known as “methods” actors may adopt to achieve their goal. One way is called the GOTE method. GOTE is a very easy to remember acronym that stands for Goal, Obstacle, Tactics and Expectation. This is a very basic approach to breaking down a character. (Russell) Goal is what the character is going after, the whole purpose for the script. The Obstacle is what stands in the way of the goal and is a direct opposition to the goal. Tactics are what the character uses to overcome the obstacles and reach the goal. The Tactics is what makes the character real, and shows the audience what type of person they are. Tactics can be funny, honorable, deceitful, etc. The Expectation gives the tone and excitement to the......

...I can still see her yelling today. This is why the wall is so very important to Vietnam Veterans. This wall shows that over fifty eight thousand men and women died for their service during this war. This wall is more than just a large piece of art for many people it is a memorial of their loved ones and friends. The Raft of the Medusa is a painting based on an event during the artist Theodore Gericault’s lifetime. The event was a ship call the Medusa stuck a sand bar and had to be abandon. The captain only let wealthy and well-connected people use the lifeboats. This forced the rest of the crew to make a raft out of parts of the ship. The rate at one time held 149 people but only fifteen survived to rescue. Shortly after their rescue five more die. The painting shows a makeshift raft with suffering man trying to stay alive. It is amazing the detail that parts of the painting has and the realism in the seen. By looking at the painting, you can almost feel the pain and fear that the crewmembers had to endure. .

De 2 værker jeg har valgt at tage udgangspunkt i og analyser arbejde begge sammen med hver deres emne, som stiller spørgsmål til den verden vi lever i. De er begge udarbejdet med materiale som har en forbindelse med emnet og på den måde nedbryder grænsen mellem fiktion og nonfiktion. CRASH – 1995(se bilag 1, billedet jeg har analyseret vises til fremlæggelsen i større format)Evaristti ønsker i dette værk at sætte fokus på de mange trafik uheld der forekommer i Bangkok og som kræver op til 30 dødsofre hver eneste dag . Jeg har benyttet mig af Panofsky’s metode til analysen af dette værk. 3 faser ( præ-ikonografiske, ikonografisk analyse, ikonografisk tolkning) Crash er en række billeder samt installationer og fotografier. Jeg har valgt at tage udgangspunkt i et maleri fra serien. 1. fase Billedet forekommer meget abstrakt ved første øjekast, da det ikke forestiller et præcist motiv udover det lille ansigt man fornemmer i venstre hjørne og noget der kunne ligne en pil som går tværs gennem billedet og aftryk af dæk i nedereste venstre hjørne som bevæger sig ind mod midten. Jordfarverne i billedet giver en følelse af nedtrykt stemning.

How We Communicate

...How We Communicate? Adrianne N. Porter University of Phoenix March 2, 2015 Professor Nakpangi Abstract Communication between human beings is accomplished in a variety of ways. We tend to communicate more through speech but are not limited to oral communication. Down through history man has used smoke signals, drums, homing pigeons, hieroglyphics and other means of communication. Today we use telephone, radio, internet, emails and various other forms of communication. Our communication is either verbal, non-verbal or visual. The way and ways that we communicate tell other people a lot about us. How do we communicate? We communicate many ways. Communication is always happening even when we don’t realize it. We can communicate verbally and non-verbally. There are actually 3 types of communication: Verbal, Non-Verbal, and Visual. Verbal Communication- focuses on how you use words and language to convey ideas. When communicating you must have a sender and a receiver.

In verbal communication, there are functions, these functions include sharing meaning, shaping thought, naming, performing actions, crafting......

How the Visual Arts Communicate

...How the Visual Arts Communicate Carolyn Wood 7-21-15 ARTS/100 ALICE MC BRIDE In the painting of Mona Lisa shows an ordinary women looking directly at you with her hands crossed and a tiny smile. From what I read about this portrait in these times the 1400’s to 1500’s women don’t normally look directly at you and the artist would normally cut off the women’s body to show a close up of the face. The point of this portrait was to make Mona Lisa look as naturally as possible and show that wealth was not important. Apart from the naturalism in the figure, the painting includes a background. If you look over her shoulder to the left side, you see a road that leads to distance, and mountains painted as background. On the right side, we can see a bridge, and a road which leads to sea in the distance. “The contrast between the woman and the background landscape is therefore quite remarkable, and it lends to the power of the painting”. (According to "Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa" (June 21, 2012), what I felt was unique about the Mona Lisa was the artist took a different approach in painting this women he didn’t follow the rules of other artist. He focused on her being simply natural and beautiful. Also he made a wonderful background which makes you think of a happy place some were far away. But his main focus was her ordinary but beautiful look. Next Michelangelo carved a sculpture using a block of Carrara marble. He said it was the most “perfect” block he ever used. His......

...How to Communicate Derrik Green IT/284 12/18/2011 David Van Eeckhoute How to Communicate The state of affairs that Bill is facing as being a new customer has an amount of sympathy with the new client and the facility. Since Bill has just purchased new merchandise and is getting irritated with the buying process. To retain a well kept and friendly association with Bill being an imminent client and new customer, it is vital to the relationship to be handled with an adequate level of understanding and care. When interacting with Bill on the phone, the information that was given will hold quite a few nonverbal signs not seen. There will be a few cases of suggestions that should be acknowledged and instances of dead silence and just as domineering as an open statement. Bill is really frustrated and stating serious criticisms, and worries which may distract one from the key facts at hand. Communicating through the phone eliminates many of the bodily functions leading to a link with the customer. Certain physical responses and symbols will be detached such as facial lexes, hand emotions, fiddling or tapping and so on. To comprehend Bill’s temperament, and his complaints, I will have to have an observant ear to successfully create a true service to customer correlation. When stating his main worry I should listen for frequent words and repetitive remarks. I will also have in mind that some customers do not like to reprise, so keeping notes on the discussion is valuable......

How to Communicate Effectively

...How to Communicate Effectively BCOM/275 Business Communications and Critical Thinking 19 March 2012 Brian W. Robinson Introduction With regards to demonstrative communication, there is no one specific definition or context as to which this term can be described. Demonstrative communication is a form of communication that takes the form of descriptive facial expressions, body language and dress, to name a few. If a person is very animated they may make you laugh and you may pay very little attention to the point or story they are trying to get across. Effective versus Ineffective Communication With Communication you will use all types of communication in a single sentence. There are your verbal tones, the way you present yourself, the placement of your hands when talking. Do you move your hands around a lot making the listener take cover or, do you keep them in your pocket? These are again, just a few examples of communication. This will ultimately affect the listener subconsciously and consciously and how they take you and your view. People who tell a children’s story are usually, not always, very animated so they can entertain and act out the story they are telling to the children. This is a type of communication that is audience specific. If you are in front of your boss this should not happen, the story should not happen unless asked. Your coworkers might enjoy it but, they might also not take you seriously on another issue. This type of......
