This creates an environment that allows the speaker to go deeper, and sometimes even to come to new realizations” (Mulvania). By listening to others people are more likely to be open minded and accept other opinions. Author Amée LaTour writes, “One of the best ways to expand that horizon is to expose ourselves to other thoughts, ideas, opinions, values, experiences and perspectives. We do this by opening our ears and minds to them. We do this by listening.” This proves that active listing can not only make someone realize the wrongs in society, but also allow one to experience new perspectives and experiences.
To begin with, let us once again refer to Wajnryb (2005), who claims that insult is an offensive term that ought to be understood literally rather than metaphorically. This appears to contradict the description provided by Archard (2014), who insists that insult is an expressive act that apart from having disparaging meaning and being directed at a specific individual or group, has a peculiar propositional content that does not have to be realistic, as it usually allows for considerable exaggeration. Azzaro (2005) further theorizes that insults tend to be not only targeted, but also reciprocal, i.e. they involve emotional reaction from both the offender and the offended. In the pursuit of a comprehensive picture of an insult, we are forced to pinpoint its key objectives.
They portrayed interpersonal conflict in a way that “the perceived needs and desires of two or more people or groups of people within a society appear to be incompatible and are believed to be in danger of being thwarted” (p. 60). In the light of my chosen conflict, it is easy to see that the interpersonal relationship I shared with my cousin became negative and therefore, provided a limitation to what was once a meaningful
Jay (1996) classified dirty words by their connotation rather than by their denotation into different categories : Taboo, obscenity, vulgarity, blasphemy, profanity, insults, expletive, cursing and slang (as cited in Holster, 2005). These types of TWs can not be separated completely as they always overlap with each other. For instance, when you use a curse word in front of others, you are probably insulting them. 22.214.171.124. Taboo and
If we were to say that a custom was correct or not, it wouldn’t be true in terms of Cultural Relativism due to us using our own culture to judge and that doesn’t take into consideration of other cultures. Realizing that different cultures have different moral codes is respectful and allows people to potentially take in a new way of life. It is interesting to think that cultures could eventually adapt to having an overarching moral truth, because of living in a more globalized world. Building on the belief that different cultures have different moral codes, the moral code of a society determines what is right. This is also a key tenet of cultural
The orientations have helped me to understand and change my perspective on cross- cultures across the societies around the globe. Therefore, I have been able to learn from the experience that knowing and appreciating other people 's perceptions is a precious memory despite the difference on race, language and the nations we come
It is necessary for humans to snap out this habit because centralizing on something that does not matter is “redirecting your focus” and gravitizing your attention to things that are not essential. Affirmative Action can draw attention towards past issues that have nothing to do with this movement. Things that do not have anything to do with this force, just cause a whole lot of controversy and dramatic arguments. People need to understand that some humans have an evil way of getting the world to go on their side and believing what is supposedly “the right way”, when it really is
The topic of political correctness in communications deserves to be researched further in depth for many reasons. The first reason as to why political correctness is worthy of a study, is because it in itself has begun to isolate individuals.. While the initial intention of political correctness was to reject derogatory terms in order to create more respect for one another, it has ultimately made society more uncomfortable with people who fit the conditions of these politically charged terms. According to Gallagher (2013), “the effect of political correctness has been to make everyone avoid these topics altogether -- thereby hindering our ability to get comfortable in living and working with those who are different from us.” (para. 6).
(Solomon&Theiss, 2013) Yet, we should be able to handle conflicts with skills. Regarding the conflict I encountered, there are some communication skills I should have known and used: Label monitor Not only do words embody our experience, it also shapes our thoughts. (Wood, 2014) If we label someone, we exaggerate the designed respect of them and overlook other respects of the person. In my case, I presumed the staff was mean and rude. In result of labeling, I communicated in an inappropriate fashion.
Tolerance is the willingness to accept and respect opinions or behaviour that differ from your own or that you may not agree with. As someone who has had a lot of exposure to different cultures and lifestyles, in Ireland and abroad, I feel confident living in a diverse society. I am equipped with the necessary skills, dispositions, knowledge and understanding to be able to participate in and contribute to the integration of people from all backgrounds. I have come to realise that tolerance is needed in all aspects of life, because it plays a pivotal role in establishing peace, love and harmony. As an educator, I will have the power to influence the views, attitudes and actions of young members growing up in a
