Communication
    #7358515 - 09/01/07 11:41 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I find there are two types of people when it comes to communicating:

Those who think before they say something, and those who go with the flow. What do you guys think of the suggestion "think before you speak". To me it sounds like something a person who likes to blame others for their problems would say, and I find it interesting that many of us were taught to think before we speak in school, probably because the teacher cannot be seen as an authority or a respected person if the kids were allowed to talk to them like any other person...

If I thought before I spoke I wouldn't have much of a post count now would I?

I always try to think before I speak. Finding the right words to convey exactly what I mean is difficult sometimes. To think before one speaks shows respect to those spoken to. To rant and ramble off random thoughts shows no respect for time.

Also, I speak to teachers/cops/parents/ect in the same fasion as my friends. Can't think of any reason why they should be treated differently, authority figure or not.

Not necessarily.
You could know exactly what you have to say but take time to think so you can arrange your thoughts so that you make the best of the idea you present.
It's also a good exercise for the mind and teaches you how to be more efficient and have an improved fluency in speaking/writing.

All this time I've loved you
And never known your face
All this time I've missed you
And searched this human race
Here is true peace
Here my heart knows calm
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs

I guess not

What if you/me can't think? Humans still need to be heard, to communicate. In this case, rambling and ranting may be your only choice. The only other option is to stay silent and listen in respect to others. This may be interpreted as being disrespectful for not meeting the other person half way.

I mean if you can't think clearly, say if you were way too stoned and someone was trying to tell you a story and you just started laughing at them. Like how when you're tripping and you assume other people are on the same wavelength as you. It can be very funny how people can misunderstand you because you are nowhere near thinking along the same lines (or you can misunderstand them because of ignorance). But really I don't think it's a problem, it makes for interesting situations.
