These days with so much of our time spent being entertained by movies, video games and the like, less is spent reading and enjoying the literary works of celebrated writers from the past and present.

This is unfortunate because there is so much we could learn about life and ourselves if we take time to read more.

When we read, our imaginations take over and we cannot help but become part of the plot in a fiction or non-fiction work.

We find ourselves empathizing with the characters and living through them as they plod on and deal with the predicaments they find themselves in. We see how they solve their problems, the mistakes they make and how they could have made better choices. We learn how the personalities of different characters deal with situations and intermingle with each other.

Without having to experience the tragedies, difficulties and pain ourselves, we broaden our understanding of human nature and the human condition. We live and learn through the experiences of the characters.

To paraphrase Marcel Proust: "Only through literary art can we escape from our selves and know the perspective of another on the world......"

Likewise the timeless works of the great literary masters such as Shakespeare, Dickens, Voltaire, Hugo, Cervantes, Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy to name a few, enrich and deepen our understanding by giving us great insight into human nature and the consequences of human action.
More Benefits of Reading

1. Encourages open-minded and flexible thinking
2. Stimulates the mind, imagination and creativity
3.  Provides a healthy escape, relieves stress, anxiety
4. Healthy entertainment
5.Makes you a more interesting person
6.Increases vocabulary and language skills

There is nothing like reading literature of all types and genres to expand you and develop your understanding of human nature in a variety of ways.

Faculty Forum / The steps for acquiring good communication skills:
« on: November 27, 2014, 06:10:38 PM »

    1. Know what you want to say and why.
    Understand clearly the purpose and intent of your message. Know to whom you are communicating and why. Consider any barriers you may encounter such as cultural differences or situational circumstances (gender, age, or economic biases). Ask yourself what outcome you want to achieve and the impression you want to leave.

   2. How will you say it?
    We're all aware by now, that it's not always what you say, but how you say it that counts. Begin by making eye contact. You inspire trust and confidence when you look a person in the eyes when you speak. Second, be aware of your body language since it can say as much, or more, than your words. By standing with arms easily at your side you tell others that you are approachable and open to hearing what they have to say. If instead, your arms are crossed and shoulders hunched, it suggests disinterest or unwillingness to communicate. Good posture and an approachable stance help make even difficult communication flow more smoothly. Make sure you speak in a cooperative, non-adversarial tone. Be nonjudgmental.

   3. Listen.
    Communication is a two way street. After you've said what you have to say, stop, listen, and look for feedback and clues of comprehension. While the person is responding avoid any impulses to cut them off or listen only for the end of the sentence so that you can blurt out more ideas or thoughts that come to your mind. Respectfully give them your full attention. When they are finished, to ensure that your message has been clearly and correctly understood, ask open questions and encourage discussion. Fine-tune your message if necessary.

    4. Reach understanding, agreement or consensus.
    Once you have had to opportunity to discuss youreach agreementr message and the feedback to it, re-visit the purpose of the interchange. Have you reached common ground, solved a problem, or clarified your position? If the purpose was to teach or instruct, have you accomplished your goal?  To communicate well is to understand and be understood. Make sure that your message has been received as intended and that any questions or concerns have been alleviated. You can even agree to disagree. There are no guarantees that your communication efforts will be meet with total compliance and agreement. As long as you understand each other, are cordial and respectful, you can still have a successful exchange.


More Tips for Developing Good Communication Skills

    To obtain a better command of the English language (or any other language), expand your vocabulary by reading and writing more. Look up words you're not familiar with. The better you are able to express yourself, the better your ability to communicate.

    Practice your listening skills. Be considerate of other speakers by waiting until they are done before stating your views. Process what has being said before responding.

    Learn to understand and appreciate opposing points of view by being open-minded and making an effort to see things from another's perspective. It will in turn, gain you more cooperation and understanding.

    Avoid trying to communicate when in an emotional state. You lose objectivity and may say something inappropriate or regrettable. Take time to think your position through before speaking.

    Join an organization such as Toastmasters that encourages you to develop a variety of communication skills as well as allowing you the opportunity to meet new and interesting people.

Psychological Disorder / 10 Ways To Improve Your Personality
« on: November 27, 2014, 05:57:21 PM »
1. Be a better listener
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was considered one of the most charming women in the world because she cultivated the skill of being an exceptional listener. She was known for the way she would look a person in the eyes,  hang on their every word, and make them feel important. There is nothing more appealing than having someone listen to you intently making you feel like you're the only person in the world.
2. Read more and expand your interests
The more you read and cultivate new interests, the more interesting you are to others. When you meet new people it gives you the opportunity to share what you know and to exchange your views with them. 
 3. Be a good conversationalist
This relates to how much you read and know. Once you have much to contribute, learn how to talk about it with others. No one can read about or know everything, so it's refreshing to learn from others those things we don't have the time to about read ourselves. If you happen to be shy, join a group like Toastmasters that encourages you to talk about what you know

4. Have an Opinion
There is nothing more tiresome than trying to talk to someone who has no opinion on anything. A conversation has nowhere to go if you have nothing to expound on. If, however, you have an uncommon point of view or differing opinion, you are more interesting and stimulating to be with socially (unless you're a know-it-all, of course).  A unique outlook expands everyone's perspective.

5. Meet New People
Make the effort to meet new people especially those unlike you. It not only exposes you to different cultures and alternative ways of doing things, it broadens your horizons.

6. Be yourself
The next most tiresome thing after having no opinions is trying to be something you're not. Molding yourself in order to fit in, or be accepted, usually backfires. Since each of us is unique, expressing that uniqueness is what makes us interesting. Attempting to be a carbon copy of someone else not only falls flat, but reveals a lack of authenticity.

7. Have a positive outlook and attitude
Who wants to be around people who are negative, complain a lot, or have nothing good to say? In fact, most of us run when we see them coming. Instead, be the kind of upbeat person who lights up a room with your energy when you enter it. Do it by looking for the best in people and things. Smile warmly, spread good cheer, and enliven others with your presence.

8.    Be fun and see the humorous side of life
    Everyone enjoys the company of someone who makes them laugh, or smile, so look for the humorous, quirky side in a situation - there always is one. Comic relief is a much welcome and needed diversion at times. When you can add fun and lightheartedness to an otherwise dull or gloomy setting, others will naturally be attracted to you, not to mention grateful.

 9.   Be supportive of others
    Being supportive is probably the most endearing quality you can integrate into your personality. Just as you yourself welcome it, be the support for others when they need it. We all love a cheerleader in our corner; someone who is encouraging, believes in us and helps pick us up when we're down.

10    Have Integrity and treat people with respect
    Being honest and true to your word will bring you the admiration, respect and gratitude of others. Nothing improves a person's personality more than integrity and respect - respect for others, as well as respect for yourself.
