Question and answer
At the end of a long day, your spouse, significant other, friend or even a family member wants to tell you about his/her day. You are tired and really don't want to hear all the details.Would you
fake attention so that you won't hurt his/her feelings, or simply say that you are tired and would rather not hear the details? Why? Is there another way you would handle this? Explain.
Sitting there and faking attention is not wise because you would not be able to give good advice. If you are tired then you should be honest and explain that you have also had a long day. [ You could tell them that if they could talk to you later after you had relaxed and would be able to give them your full attention. ]

stereotyping generally has a negative connotation, it could help us in some ways
Weegy: Although stereotypes generally have negative implications, they aren't necessarily negative. Stereotypes are basically generalizations that are made about groups. [ Such generalizations are necessary: in order to be able to interact effectively, we must have some idea of what people are likely to be like, which behaviors will be considered acceptable, and which not.They allow us to put people into a category, according to the group they belong to, and make inferences about how they will behave based on that grouping. There will still be differences between individuals from one culture, and with the same individual in different situations. But the stereotype is reasonably accurate, so it is useful. Stereotypes are only a problem when they are inaccurate, especially when those inaccuracies are negative and hostile. ] (More)

Why do you think it is important to be mindful and to develop these skills? User: Mindfulness is important in the communication process because it allows us to pay attention to others without being judgmental.This is also critical thinking. Why do you think it is important to be mindful and to develop these skills?
Weegy: In the corporate world where you’re constantly required to come up with presentations, or in situations where you need to make connections, you’ll definitely need to brush up on effective conversational skills. [ I’ve seen people develop these skills rapidly just by concentrating on a few key steps. While there are textbooks that might give you a lengthier discussion on the art of effective conversation, this article will break the important concepts into points that are easier to understand. Learning these skills comes with a lot of benefits. You’ll be way ahead of your colleagues, and you’ll have an easier time requesting for something or convincing other people to see things your way. If you want to develop effective conversational skills, read on! 1) Stop, look and listen. This means knowing when to stop talking, maintain eye contact, and listen to the other person. A lot of people think that by dominating the discussion, they are displaying effective conversational skills. These people couldn’t be more wrong. While you really do have something important to say, you also have to let the other party speak their mind as well. Conversation is not a one-way street. Learn to pick up cues from every conversation. 2) Be understandable. While knowing a lot of highfalutin words may sound impressive, it actually isn’t when the person you’re talking to has no idea what you’re yammering on about. Having effective conversational skills involves you adjusting to the level of the person you’re speaking with. Make sure to speak very clearly as well. Don’t eat your words or speak too softly. Have confidence in yourself, and you’ll have a much easier time talking. 3) Express yourself. There is more than one way to express yourself in a conversation. If you want to let the other person know you’re pressed for time, look at your watch every so often. However, I don’t recommend doing this to very important clients. ] (More)
