A lot of users on this forum, myself inclusive, have often made comments or written paragraphs that are deemed hard to understand. Majority of us, also do not really find our own paragraphs or even brief comments difficult to understand.
Additionally, there are people on this forum and in the world with conditions such as aphantasia or even people without an inner voice or synesthesia. The world is sure to look different and the way communication is presented is bound to strike a difference when for example one person is communicating an image and the other person cannot visualize an image.
To make things a little worse, a lot of arguments arise from miscommunication. All too often I have been in a conversation saying the same thing as the other person while we both believe to be saying the opposite to each other.
Which brings this post!
How to make yourself more clearly understood online~.
I have been previously told that my sentences would be better understood if they were shorter. Education has commonly told me in my childhood that commas serve as breathing points, therefore that a sentence does not have an explicit limit but that a paragraph should convey a point.
In reality, this is very simple. That is, changing your sentences from long form. Consequently, to a shorter form. To me it doesn’t look any bit clearer, nonetheless it is something that can be done.
I personally find myself better at understanding people that others do not understand than I do the reverse.
So the point of this post, do you have any good resources/tips/tricks/ideas that help you effectively communicate online?
Also subsequently, how do you actually communicate? do you try to describe an image, use ideas, let melodies flow, whatever type of way you use, feel free to share it so others can see it and get a better idea.
