Communication log #1
The first person I interviewed about their problem in communication is my dad. He said that his biggest problem is being impatient and demanding sometimes. H e expects an answer immediately and doesn't give the other person the chance to take his/her time to talk . He feels like the other person does not comprehend what he is trying to convey to them. I believe my Dad needs to take his time in trying to communicate with others and give them the opportunity to answer at his/her pace. I myself find myself at times finishing other people's sentences when they speak too slow, but know that I can't speak for them.
The second person I interviewed about their problem in communication is my mom. She said she finds it hard to talk to people she doesn't know well. She doesn't know what to talk about with people she just met. She is not the kind of person to approach strangers and speak to them randomly. However, she tries to solve this problem by being more open and friendlier. I can relate to not being able to communicate with people I just met.
The third person I interviewed about their problem with communication is my middle sister, Gabby. Her name says it all; she talks a bit much at times . She doesn't think before she talks and people that don't know her can assume she is rude. She tries to solve this by restraining herself from saying certain things and being more mindful of what she says. I have always been respectful of others and try not to say offensive things.
The fourth person I interviewed about their problem with communication is my aunt, Norma. She tries to dominate all conversations and doesn't give others the chance to speak. She is always talking about herself and her children in a boastful manner. She is trying to learn how to be less arrogant and letting other speak too. I can't relate to my aunt because I enjoy listening to other people talk about them more than I like to speak about myself.
The fifth person I interviewed about their problem with communication is my older sister, Jasmin. She was born talking and then became a teacher for elementary grade school children. She feels like she has the authority to always speak and that everyone else should always listen to her. She tries to let others be in command of the conversations at times. I can't relate to this problem because I like to let others talk too.
