Michael Chenette February 14, 2008 Fundamentals of Communication Journal 2, Stereotypes and Misinterpretations There was one time in my life that I really did a poor job interpreting what my friend was saying to me. It’s this miscommunication on our part that we are no longer friends and why I do not like using AIM. AIM is a fascinating communication tool used to keep people in touch with one another and it’s very useful. “Facebook” is another great way to keep in touch. However, whenever you write on the web or to someone without some way of letting them know the tone of voice, things can get real ugly. For example, if I wrote, “What the hell is wrong with you?” the readers heuristics are such that you would look at that and assume I am angry or being mean. But what if I say this to my best friend and he told me a story about how stupid he was when he was talking to a cute girl? I would be comical and happy, meaning it should be read in a lighter, happier tone.
