STEREOTYPES

1-I want to start a thread on stereotypes. We run across this barrier in all types of communication. I have included a link to one of my favorite clips on stereotypes. Take a look and let me know what you think. Sometimes you have to copy and paste the link into a new browser window to get it to work.

2- Which intercultural communication barrier is most prevalent in America today? Can it be eliminated? If so, how? If not, why not?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3-Your friend appears standoffish, even though he is easy to get along with once you get to know him. What nonverbal communication codes could be being used here? What could you suggest he do to change the negative perceptions about him?

 

4- Please reword this paragraph in your own words thanks.

In the communicating with people of different cultures video, I definitely related to what the woman was saying is that you really have to listen to what the person of another language is saying and approach it with empathy. I hate to admit but I have to, I have a hard time talking to people with whose language I don't understand because it can be very difficult to understand them and at times I grow impatient, I am learning a lot about empathy and its importance in this class. Next time I talk to someone of a language I don't understand I am going to listen carefully, pay attention and approach the situation with empathy and remember they are trying their hardest to adapt to their new culture.
