THE TRUTH ABOUT CONDESCEND+

10169a1ce5f08fbc5dff27dfaad432b4

Condescend: v. to communicate and reveal a feeling of superiority and use implied and/or overt criticism of others

“And if that is too hard for you to grasp, then I will just have to explain it to you again and again.”

This is an example of a condescending remark which is really implying superior learning ability of the communicator and criticizing by implying stupidity in the recipient of the remark with the words explain again and again.

“I have to descend to your level because you are so dim witted!”

Descending to your level implies a superior level of the communicator and here the criticism is overt because dim witted is just a synonym for stupid.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TAUNTING+

WittyFacebookStatusMindPictures-13953

Taunt: v. to provoke with repeated (criticism and/or ridicule) and/or (insults and/or name calling)) frequently due to an imbalance of power

Whether criticism, ridicule, insults, and name calling are used to attack someone it is an attempt to assert dominance or superiority over that someone and get others to indirectly or directly join in.

Taunting provokes anger and aggression from the taunted and there is usually no fear that physical violence will result because frequently the taunter is also physically superior in strength.

Teasing is playful taunting and usually done between equals and usually neither side gets permanently offended. In taunting one side or the taunted side gets offended and there is some frustration that nothing much can be done about the offensive situation. Trash talking may be the attempted defense used by the taunted but there is an implied acceptance of an inferior circumstance which is not challenged very aggressively because there is a realization of relative powerlessness of the taunted in the circumstance.

Taunting usually reveals your weaknesses or flaws and is what makes you feel slightly or greatly inferior to others who don’t have those same weaknesses or flaws.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REPRIMANDS+

r-REPRIMANDING-CHILD-large570

Reprimand: v. to officially criticize for disobedience and/or bad behavior(s) but the criticism can also be done informally

 

Many are officially criticized for disobedience and/or bad behavior frequently in private in an organization or corporation and this is a reprimand.

 

Parents frequently also criticize their offspring for disobedience and/or bad behavior and this can be considered to be an informal reprimand by a parent performing his or her responsibility or duty to let the offspring know that they have crossed the line of good behavior in some way.

THE TRUTH ABOUT NAGGING

Free-parenting-Webinar1

Nag: v. to frequently repeat identical (commands and/or criticisms) and/or annoying communications which annoy a human(s)

Repeat commands and/or criticisms or do them over and over again or repeat the same words or expressions or do them over and over again and you are nagging and are sure to annoy someone.

Wives are frequently accused of nagging but domineering husbands are also sometimes guilty of nagging.

Offspring are also sometimes nagged. Clean up your room, take out the garbage, come home on time, feed the pet, brush your teeth, hang up your clothes, and turn out the light are some examples of nagging expressions which can be stopped if you punish with the withdrawal of important privileges until the bad habit disappears or becomes so infrequent that it is acceptable behavior.

Nag too much and it is ignored communication. Unless it is something very important and has to be resolved don’t nag but do something about it.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CRITICISM

dealing-with-criticism

Criticism: n. a communication with disapproval for too much deviation from normative standards of perfection and/or complete standards of perfection for a subset(s)

Almost all of us have been criticized for not looking good, not doing the right thing, or having an opinion or belief which is unacceptable or wrong. Our first reaction is usually very defensive and we frequently decide to defend ourselves or get very upset at the criticism.  When you criticize another human keep in mind that they may become very defensive and upset no matter how diplomatically you present that criticism.

There are certain things which you should keep in mind when offering criticism.

Don’t name call such as calling someone stupid, crazy, or incompetent for doing a stupid, crazy, or incompetent thing.

Instead ask a probing question and find out what made the human do the stupid, crazy, or incompetent thing. They may surprise you by giving a reasonable answer from their point of view and what they did may not seem so stupid, crazy, and incompetent as you initially thought. After getting a subjective personal answer you may still decide that objectively what they did was stupid, crazy, or incompetent so then offer a suggestion of what you would have done instead and find out if they agree with you.

If you are a boss then you can insist that they do what is right the next time but if it is a friend then you should accept their point of view and not try to force them to change their behavior the next time around.

If you are criticizing an opinion which is not a firmly held belief which you probably will never change then ask them to give reasons for the opinion if it is one that you disagree with.

What are the reasons why you feel that way? or What facts are you using to back up your opinion? are questions which will give you a better idea of why the opinion is being held. There may not be any facts to back up the opinion and it may simply be an impulsive feeling of being right. If this is the case then you can present facts or reasons why a differing opinion is in fact right and should be held.

There are other techniques which you can use to persuade a human that your opinion is the right one to have but you should realize that you may still fail to convince another that you are right and they are in fact wrong. If the opinion is not going to affect your life in any major way then let the opinion live and don’t try to destroy it by taking a very aggressive attitude towards it and starting unnecessary confrontations or arguments.

An attitude that I am right and you are wrong is frequently the wrong approach because as in most things in life neither you nor they are completely right or wrong but both are frequently partially right and partially wrong. There are many more shades of grey such as sometimes, frequently, and not always than just black or white, yes or no.

Criticizing looks is dangerous because no one wants you to say that outfit is ugly because they impulsively feel that you are calling them personally ugly. When criticizing give some valid factual reasons why you don’t like something first. It is not my favorite color, color combination, style, pattern, or print is much better than saying it is ugly, I hate it, it is terrible, and I can’t stand it.

If you have a reputation for being honest, sincere, dependable, and trustworthy then your critical opinion will have more impact than if you have a bad or unreliable reputation and are not trusted by another. Criticisms from someone that you like are not as offensive as criticisms from someone whom you don’t like.
