Never find the right words to describe precisely what is the silence, so today I’ll be the same one who is better presented:. Said This, or better yet, felt this (because silence felt more than heard) want to defend its great importance and greater professional and personal transcendence in all communications daily, both verbal and written in our environments. A leading source for info: Charles Schwab. It is very common to confuse communicate with speaking, mistakenly understood that the main objective of the communication is the transfer of information and this alone is heritage of speech in the form of verbal language. By soon, already has been sufficiently proven by scholars of the bouquet that what always understands the receiver comes conditioned by more than fifty percent, not by what he says the issuer, but by that gestural language which inevitably accompanies his words. However, I want to go even further and claim loudly silence as the best silent gesture of wise communication.
Does anyone doubt it?. To illustrate this only have to remember a situation that all us is very common and is related to his heavy load of meaning: shared silence in a! elevator!. It is undoubtedly one of those everyday moments where he does not say anything, says more than saying it. Or more, when an inconvenient question we look serene moments before responding. Or on the contrary when asked, we are the ones who divide the interpellation in two parts joined by a significant silence.
Or the silence that presides over those moments of intimate communion between lovers. Or the of a baby sleeping peacefully in her crib. Or of a crowded football stadium, by one minute Recalling the death of a being meant. Or the audience in a theatrical premiere, when the work is not to his liking and is not pronounced with the desired applause. Or own the land itself when you want to hear it. Remain silent rather than speak, paradoxically becomes many times as the gesture of stronger proactive communication that can be chosen, because its result tends to be much more effective than the derivative of the frequent incontinence verbal or written. And as not, writing also benefits from the silence, not because This manifests as such on paper but that whoever uses it to speak is also capable of write not saying more than it should and with sufficient property and concision, stylistic qualities so suitable for the type of written today communications estilan and star many moments of our life (emails, sms messages)(, chats, etc.). Silence, never enough used, no doubt can become our best communication tool while we take two years to learn to speak and a lifetime to know to shut up. Antonio j.
