Culture Influences Communication

Culture is often described as a set of traditions, rules, beliefs, norms, values, or standards of behaviors. Sometimes it is described as the way you do things. You encounter different cultures every day, and it is not always when you come into contact with people from different countries or ethnic backgrounds. Your family has a culture that may be different from your neighbor’s culture, even if you and your neighbor are of the same ethnicity. Culture affects many aspects of life, including how you talk, what you wear, certain rituals such as shaking hands, and how much space you allow between yourself and others. When communicating with people, your culture has an impact.

Elements of Culture:

Dominant Cultures

When multiple cultures blend together, such as what we see in the United States, one culture usually emerges as the dominant culture. This dominant culture usually is represented in the culture via the established language, certain behaviors, religion, and social customs. Although the society may acknowledge its various cultures, it typically adopts the holidays and other traditions of the dominant culture.

Cultural Characteristics in Communication

Although all cultures communicate utilizing both non-verbal and verbal elements, different cultures communicate differently. Some cultures may depend more heavily on non-verbal cues, environmental factors, the situation itself, while others tend to focus more on what is spoken. Cultures that focus more on words are called low-context cultures.

Ways to Improve Intercultural Communication

Communicating with people from other cultures can cause miscommunications. It is important to recognize that although someone may look just like you, they may embody a completely different culture than you do. One way to improve the communication is to simply be interested in the cultures of others. If you talk with someone from a different culture, express an interest in learning about their culture.

Intrapersonal Communication

This module focuses on how your view of yourself and your general perception affects your communication with others. Your personal thoughts, your dreams, and even those conversations you have with yourself are examples of intrapersonal communication. Terms like self-concept, self-image, self-esteem, and personality describe yourself and impact your communication, both interpersonal and intrapersonal.

Elements of Intrapersonal Communication

PERCEPTION AND THE SELF

Self-Concept

When you are asked to describe yourself you may present a list of traits and characteristics such as your appearance, race, talents, and your family role; this is your self-concept. Your self-concept is an assessment of traits, characteristics and judgments that you use to describe yourself.

Self-Image

Your self-image is similar to your self-concept, although it is a more general and complete view of yourself. While your self-concept can refer to the view you have of yourself in specific situations, your self-image is a complete picture of yourself, which is more permanent and includes a combination of how you view yourself and the evaluation of how others see you.

Self-Esteem

Self-esteem consists of your sense of self-worth and the level of satisfaction you have with yourself. Self-image directly affects self-esteem. A good self-image raises your self-esteem, while a poor self-image results in low self-esteem, insecurity, and little confidence.

Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is the extent to which you know yourself. Understanding your self-concept and how it develops provides one way to increase your self-awareness. The more you understand about why you view yourself a certain way, the more you will understand about yourself in general and who you are.

Perception

Perception is the process of acquiring, interpreting, and organizing information that is received through your senses. This process allows you to become conscious of situations in your environment that are dangerous and require attention in order to survive. Everything that you perceive through your senses (sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste) is called stimulus.

The Importance of Listening

Listening is a core competency skill necessary to effectively communicate. As our text explains, we spend more time listening (45 percent) than speaking (30 percent), reading (16 percent) or writing (9 percent). You would think that our listening skills would be better considering all our practice. Yet, internal and external obstacles get in the way. Our lives are filled with various tasks and responsibilities. As students, you must juggle personal and professional responsibilities, handling all those last-minute tasks that fight for your attention. Who has the time to engage completely to one conversation, right? Effective listening has the potential to be the biggest time saver for the overwhelmed individual. Think about how many arguments or misunderstandings can be linked back to poor listening. Investing in listening makes better use of your time. You spend less time asking people to repeat important information. In this module, we will examine the art of listening and identify best practices for improvement.

Guidelines to Effective Listening

We have all said the following phrase: “Do you hear me?” Usually, what we really mean is: “Are you listening to me?” Hearing and listening are not the same thing. Hearing is the physiological act of your ears perceiving a sound and transmitting the auditory sensation to your brain. Listening consists of three components: hearing, interpreting, and understanding.

There are six components of effective listening:

Motivating yourself to listen:

Making eye contact with the speaker will help you focus and pay attention to the non-verbal indicators.

Clearly hearing the message:

Try to reduce noise (external or internal) or anything that fights for your attention.

Paying attention to the message:

Examine what the speaker says (verbal) and how the speaker says it (non-verbal).

Correctly interpreting the message:

Remember meaning is in people. To interpret correctly, you need to be mindful of personal biases, past experiences, and established relationships.

Evaluating the message:

In order to evaluate effectively, you have to listen to the entire message. Avoid jumping to conclusions or inferring. Listen. Then respond.

Remembering and responding appropriately:

Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you need clarification. You can also paraphrase (using your own words to restate the speaker’s message).

Listening Types

This type of listening, also referred to as “critical listening,” focuses on facts, information, or ideas. That listening can be active or passive. It goes beyond just focusing on what we hear. We listen with our eyes by monitoring body language and facial expressions. We listen by gauging the emotional climate of a tense situation.

Remember to practice these positive listening skills:

1.Concentrate on every word.

2.Identify the main message.

3.Observe the speaker’s feelings.

4.Paraphrase the speaker.

5.Focus on verbal and non-verbal.

Non-Listening: Poor Listening Habits

By now, we can all see the keys to effective listening. Now, let’s cover the roadblocks. In today’s hyper-communication environment, external noise comes in many shapes, sizes, and ringtones. Technological mediums, like texting and social media sites, keep us away from active listening. There is a saturation of communication tools at our disposal, but our listening skills are still lacking.

Prejudging the speaker or the information:

Some of us will stop listening to a speaker after the first sentence. Avoid this mindset. You never know what you will miss. Keep an open mind. Ask questions to keep yourself interested.

Interrupting:

This happens a lot during an argument. You interrupt the speaker because you want to make your point. Or, you may finish the speaker’s sentence. Whatever the reason, interrupting can have a negative effect. Be patient. Allow the speaker to finish so you won’t respond prematurely.

Daydreaming:

If a speaker fails to keep our attention, our minds will wander. Then, we can be guilty of pseudo-listening, or pretending to listen. You will offer filler phrases like “uh-huh” or “I know” to fool the listener. Work on maintaining eye contact with the speaker.

Becoming distracted:

Distractions will always be around us. Turning off devices during an important conversation will help the flow of communication.

Focusing on the speaker instead of the message:

There are times when we focus more on the speaker than the message. We fixate on appearance, language, delivery, or personality. Before you know it, the speaker has finished, and you’re lost.

Becoming emotional:

This non-listening pitfall happens often. Both positive and negative emotions can distract the listener. When you exhibit emotions, it will also distract from the speaker’s message. We all have trigger words, or words that push our buttons to respond immediately.

Listening only for facts:

There are times when we listen too intently. You can be focused only on facts and not what the person means. If someone misquotes a famous line, don’t interrupt them to offer a correction. Concentrate on the overall message.
