What Is Your Most Effective Communication Tool?

You are probably thinking...duh, talking. Isn't that the one and only way to communicate your thoughts and feelings, but actually there are many ways to get your point across other than verbally. However, for those of you with poor oral communication skills, thinking outside the box may deem to bring you more highly effective communication. So what are some of these ideas?

I failed miserably at giving advice to friends. I'd get frustrated and angry with them. One day, instead of getting mad at a girlfriend with a wandering fiance (off to visit friends all the time instead of her), I just asked, "Are you happy?" I could tell it had her thinking. She ended up breaking off with the guy not long after, and she told me it was because of my question. Of course, nothing that amazing has ever happened since!

I feel when I'm writing things down I can express myself better. When I talk sometimes I say or blurt out the wrong thing then I regret it.

Well when I'm really quite he knows he is in troubles... and then of course my eyes are like knifes... so there you go. Words can make it worst, therefore, sometimes I use that technique

I'm a talker opening my mouth is never a problem. I believe that silent communication is strong too...since I am a talker if I'm utterly mad sometimes I get quiet b.cuz I am too mad to talk. Somehow, that seems more effective when it comes to issues with men...its like they know they have messed up when my lil chatterbox self becomes quiet lol.

talk-talk-talk. don't need spell check to use the words you want (good for those of us with poor spelling) and i don't let my emotions show. i might be furious, scared, embarrassed or upset but you would never know it when i want to get my point across. years of practice with people's comments about my disabled daughter have done this. on the inside i might want to scream "shut up you stupid bitch!" and burst into tears. on the outside i calmly explain that my little girl has a degenerative brain disorder and that hurtful comments are upsetting to my 2 younger girls. maybe even offer a web address so they can research it if they are interested. :)
