When we say what we think.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the twenty-fifth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
So, how not to become a backseat driver? First of all, you have to satisfy this need for efficiency. If we analyze the behavior we usually have, we must verbalize our opinions and, above all, share them. Then, how do we expect others to listen to our opinions? We must be open to listening to theirs.
In the absence of having a live interlocutor, i.e. during a conversation, during a verbal exchange, asynchronous means can be used. Keeping a journal of our thoughts and opinions is an excellent way. For example, the blog you are reading right now is, in my opinion, a very good way to share opinions. Some people will do a podcast, others will vlog or some shy ones will simply write a diary.
In my opinion, opening up to others is a very acceptable way to meet this need. The idea is not to read everything others have to say, but to say what we have to say. Verbalizing our ideas in writing makes us better able to verbalize them live. Being right or being wrong is not the point. We are talking about simply taking our internal impressions and externalizing them. To mature in formulating our thoughts and associating ideas and language.
