THE TRUTH ABOUT LACONIC*

 

maxresdefault (1)Laconic: adj. using a relatively minimum amount of spoken words to communicate meaningfulness which frequently implies disinterest

 

If you are speaking and being brief and to the point and doing so understandably then you may be considered concise, abrupt, or even sometimes rude but rarely laconic.

 

If you have no or little interest in talking about a subject then you may show it with brief quick unemotional responses using few words with usually broad somewhat vague generalities frequently difficult to understand fully and that is what laconic really means.

 

There is no such thing as laconic writing because most authors are truly interested in what they are writing about and it is almost impossible to write and convey disinterest throughout a written work.

 

There is no such thing as a laconic written phrase because you can’t express disinterest in writing unless you qualify it by writing- said laconically or said with disinterest because there is no emotional or feeling word which conveys disinterest. Something boring or dull may imply disinterest within the word itself but is not explicit disinterest.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SLANDER+

Slander1-700x700

Slander: v. to libel with an untrue aural communication(s)

If you say something untrue about a human then you are guilty of slandering someone.

If the slandered human can prove that their reputation was severely hurt by the slander and if it was recorded in the media then you also have grounds for libel, can sue the offending party, and can be compensated with a money award.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMMUNICATION

key-to-communicate

In good communications you should be a good listener first and really pay attention to what someone is saying and feeling. Humans will feel respected if you listen to them and don’t rudely interrupt or cut them off. After listening carefully you can follow up with some questions to probe more deeply what the human is trying to say or convey and how they feel about the issue.  

Try to empathize with whom you are talking to. You will better understand where they are coming from and how they feel about an issue. You can then answer in a competent and hopefully concise way and maintain a flowing conversation giving emotional support if necessary or give advice which you may feel is useful.

The success of many conversations not only depends on how smart you are or your IQ but on your EQ or emotional quotient or emotional smarts. Humans generally make impulsive decisions based on their feelings about an issue and not so much the logical consequences or the facts. Understanding that emotions are frequently more important in a conversation and must be dealt with first is a fundamental fact of successful human communication, especially if you are in a leadership position and must also get emotional support for your decisions.

You should keep arguments to a minimum in a good conversation and unless your beliefs are almost identical then you should leave hot topics like politics, religion, and sports alone and discuss them rarely if at all. In any conversation you will find differing opinions and beliefs and sometimes the smartest thing to do is to accept differing opinions and beliefs and not try to change them unless they will impact you in a very bad way.

Gossiping or spreading unproven bad facts about a human is not a very good thing to do and if you find that whom you are talking to is a gossiper then you should keep at a healthy distance from them because they may spread an untrue rumor about you in the foreseeable future which may hurt your reputation.

If a conversation is becoming repetitive or boring switch topics and if that doesn’t work then cut the conversation off for another time and proceed to do something more constructive.

Conversation should not waste your time and if you find that it seems to have no useful purpose or that it is mostly about random unimportant things then don’t waste your time and cut it short.

Communication is different whether you are talking to your children, spouse, relatives, friend, boss, employee, or casual acquaintance.

With your children you are probably more of an authority figure or the boss who knows what is frequently good for them. You expect them to behave in a certain way or you take away their privileges or punish them in some way if they misbehave.

With your spouse you may be very laid back or casual and feel free discussing almost any topic which enters your head. You should have an honest, sincere, and reliable or trustworthy relationship so that you can share some secrets or personal feelings which would cause you trouble if the secrets or opinions became public knowledge.

Not only should your spouse be someone whom you trust with sensitive information but they are someone with whom you can share your innermost feelings and know that they will understand you and give you moral or emotional support if necessary. Realize that many times your female spouse may be looking mostly for emotional support or empathy and not really want advice on how to solve her problems.

Communicating with a close friend is almost like a marriage where you basically trust one another with sensitive information and you may discuss some male or female issues or topics which you may not even share that intimately with your spouse. Some close friends can even be a source of good marital advice if both of you are in generally happy marital relationships.

Business conversations or etiquette is a complex specialty but even here listening intently with empathy and answering in short and concise ways is a good general rule of thumb to follow.

On a first date you may not want to reveal a serious health problem or a dysfunctional family but if you want a serious honest, sincere, and reliable or trustworthy relationship to develop then you will eventually have to reveal your bad circumstances and it is better to do so before marriage than after it.

Social media and texting is rapidly changing how we communicate with each other and is taking much of the emotion out and permitting more exclusive brief communications. Some may feel that it is dehumanizing conversation. I feel that it is making communication more rational and concise and will benefit almost everyone in the long duration.

Finally most women like to talk more than men so if you find out that a woman is talking much more than you then don’t stress about it but accept it as a common natural cultural phenomenon.

THE MAJOR HANDICAP IN THIS WORLD IS AN EMOTIONAL, ARCHAIC, MYTHOLOGICAL LANGUAGE!!!

foreign-language-school-cartoon-300x255

Human language everywhere is terribly inefficient when compared to animal communications such as those of dolphins and other wild animals. It uses many synonyms which are words which mean the same thing and multiple meanings for words which confuse someone who hasn’t spent days learning the tricky use of the word. Words spelled differently but sounding the same can create confusion for young communicators.

It has antonyms which are not the opposite in meaning but mislead you into thinking they are. Love is not the opposite of hate because there are humans who love to hate and this artificial confusing language paradox is true for almost all the antonyms which exist.

Similes and metaphors are very poor approximations to reality and lead to extreme views of the world. You have a cold heart or a warm one and your love gushes forth like an avalanche. What nonsense.

We have wallowed too long in a yes or no, black or white, for or against, love or hate, never or always, antonym or synonym, yin or yang, good or bad society approach to life when the real answer to questions should be almost all the time, not all the time, some of the time, or infrequently!

There is only humor in society because humans do stupid things and that is primarily because our language is so stupid and silly most of the time. Unfortunately language conveys an inaccurate view of reality which permits extreme beliefs and very emotional attachments to untrue opinions. Life should not be a joke but unfortunately language is a tragic joke on humans who suffer under its oppression and inhumanity.

Language is very verbose and emotional and very illogical. Literary works are pages of inaccurate information and emotional posturing which can frequently be summarized in a few topic sentences. There is no joy of reading except for the brainwashed older generation and it is no wonder that the younger generation prefers texting and with the help of the internet is quickly killing writing as a profession.

Prejudice abounds because all languages are emotionally biased to very provincial attitudes and the huge variety of languages in the world make worldwide communication and agreement among humans even harder to achieve.

Politicians don’t use logic but use emotionally charged words which you love or hate and create fear of the opposing party and create a hatred of humans who disagree with your point of view. Just what we need to lead a nation forward justly- emotionally antagonistic, charged leaders from opposing parties who can’t compromise or agree on anything of importance in society. Flawed illogical emotional language is the primary cause of all the political bullshit which we have to put up with.

Instead of discussing a family or relationship problem with a calm approach a problem frequently causes an argument where feelings are hurt and dissatisfaction and wanting revenge makes circumstances even worse.

Yelling and screaming and even sometimes shouting obscenities at offspring instead of firmly disciplining or discussing the situation is frequently a fact and is a sign of terrible parenting. All thanks to an emotional illogical language!!!!!!

Humans use this inefficient illogical emotional language worldwide and are trapped in a world of trivial inefficient selfish emotional pursuits which pollute the world unnecessarily and threaten biodiversity and so threaten human ultimate long duration survival in the world.

What is the solution to this seemingly uncurable handicap which current EMOTIONAL, mythological, and archaic language has burdened us with?

The solution is my evergreen book SCIENTIFIC THESAURUS which has unique logical definitions for every word used, has no synonyms, no antonyms, no multiple meanings, and few if any emotional words. It is a largely efficient logical language and my evergreen blogs are an example of its use. Yes, my blogs will not excite you or tantalize you or entertain you but they will supply you with the logical truth about most of the topics which I write about.

If you liked this evergreen blog then read more of them and read one or more of my evergreen books, especially COMMON SENSE.
