I was doodling while listening to something the other day. When I looked at the doodle later, I realized it is a good representation of many problems in communication.
- We say we expected one thing, but in reality, expect something else.
- We want to say what’s on our mind but are afraid to do it, so we change the topic.
- We are talking to fill the time and think about a conversation we had before or the one that comes next.
