This is an interesting video I watched the other day and it is a perfect example of miscommunication. One person’s miscommunication (failure to communicate adequate) often leads to another person’s misunderstanding (failure to understand something correctly). Although this clearly happens in verbal communication, it can also happen in non-verbal interactions.
One of the reason this happens is that so many of us listen to reply, so we don’t fully hear or understand everything that is said. Once we start actively listening to each other, misunderstandings become less and less.
Sometimes we are just so distracted that we neither communicate well, or understand fully.
Another reason is that we become so set in our ways and we refuse to even consider another perspective, so we take away only what we want to hear.
Be sure to watch the video all the way through and watch each person closely.
What did you think of the outcome in the video?
