The Frontliners Barriers and Gateways to Communication 11/02/2017 Section #02 People with low extraversion may find it hard to be assertive in these types of situations People with high neuroticism will spend more time thinking on this and will likely become more upset in situations of judgement 2 Achieving real communication will allow for the group members to reach a mutual understanding (Pg 106, ¶ 4) Understanding with a person rather than trying to understand the person will allow for significant changes in personality (Pg 106, ¶ 5) People with high levels of agreeableness will find this easier to achieve due to their higher level of concern with general harmony and cooperation By keeping everything concise there can be an easier exchange of opinions and leaves less room for disagreement 3 Achieving real communication in a larger group can be harder than in a small group (Pg 107, ¶ 2) Our group has one extra person making it larger than every other group Once people stop being defensive and realize that the other person’s intention is to understand and not to judge mutual communication will occur (Pg 107, ¶ 5) Those with a high level of agreeableness will find this easier while those with a high level of neuroticism may have problems with letting their defenses down Those who are more open to experiences will find it easier to let down their guard due to their heightened awareness of their feelings and their ability to think of things away from a concrete example Reaching a level of mutual understanding is key for increasing productivity and keeping emotions in check (Pg 108, ¶ 3) By listening rather than hearing one can better understand the meaning behind what someone is saying and logically process it rather than allowing their emotions to activate first 4 Being able to properly listen allows for one to better articulate what they are saying and allows for easier communication Those with a high level of sympathy and cooperation will be able to better reach a level of mutual understanding due to the higher level of compassion and willingness to compromise Those with a low level of assertiveness and high levels of anger will find this harder to achieve Those with low levels of assertiveness will find it hard to correctly word what they wish to say and may convey a different opinion than what they actually think 2 (All references to the IPIP come from this source) 3 4 - the-importance-of-listening.html 4 of 7

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
