Barriers To Communication

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Barriers to communication There are many barriers to communication, then main reasons communication may be blocked is either because, the message is understood, the people in the interaction is impaired or the message can't be made sense of. The message may not be understood because many reasons, this could be because of cultural differences, emotional issues or because of the different social settings. Cultural differences may be because the communicator may have used humour which is related to there culture, but the listener of the interaction may have a different culture and may not understand that related humour, then the message is not understood. To make sure the message is understood the communicator should not use any humour relating to their culture in case the people involved in the interaction have a different culture. A cultural difference may not only be humour, it could be gestures used. If a gesture is used in communication and there are different cultures involved, then a gesture could be taken and related to being either polite or may be a rude gesture, depending on the culture. ...read more.

To make sure that the message is understood, all people in the interaction should make sure they are being formal with their language and body movement, so that their manners are suitable for communication. The message may not be able to be made sense of because many reasons, this could be because of the communicator has used jargon's, slang, acronyms or they may have even of used dialect. Jargons mean technical language. If a person is using technical language, not all people can make sense of what is said. In a conversation when jargons are used not all people can understand them, so the message will not be made sense of. To overcome this problem the communicator needs to make sure that their language does not use jargons. Another problem that will lead to the message not making sense is if the person speaking uses slang which the others aren't familiar with. Slang is words that have been modified by the speaker; an example of slang is saying the word 'blats' which actually means blatantly. To make sure the message can be made sense of the speaker needs to make sure that they do not use any slang or do not shorten words. ...read more.

Conclusion

this is overcome the problem with short-term memory loss. However if one of the person in the interaction has long-term memory loss, this is where information stored is lost, which can last as little as 30 seconds or as long as decades. To make sure that the message has been put across they should ask the person to repeat or make it clear that they understand. If the message is very important perhaps the communicator should write down anything important that needs to be remembered. It is not only speaking that can cause the message not be received correctly, but if the person is impaired and relies on seeing the persons face for example, if the person has to lip read or see their hands like most deaf people do. If there is a bright light behind the communicator then it is more difficult to see their face or hands. To make sure that the impaired person can receive the message, the position of the person needs to take care and make sure they are visible to everyone, and that there is no bright light behind them or make sure that there is plenty of light available. ?? ?? ?? ??
