Good Communication Is Not Common Sense

We might think that it is common sense to be a good conversationalist if we can just speak the language or in the very least, have a decent conversation. However, it is not the case for many. Most will actually not be able to have even a decent one simply due to the fact that they just don’t know how. So how then could it be thought that it is common sense to know these things? Like anything else, nothing is really ‘common sense’ unless it is what you have been exposed to. The same goes to good communication. One of the most fundamental human character which is to communicate with others, also need to be learn. There’s no such thing as being born with it. Sure, you can have the charisma and good looks but if you only rely on those, you are not going to cut it. So, good news to those who are bad at communication, it is possible to learn, like pretty much everything else. You just need to put in the work. So scour the libraries – physical or digital – and get on your way to having ‘the gift of the gab’.
