IPC or what we called as interpersonal communication is one of the skills needed for people to interact and help people in understanding others’ thinking, feeling and wanting, by their reaction in verbal and non-verbal communication. Seeing the use of these skills, I pushed myself hard to gain as much as I can by practicing the lesson learnt in real situations. Resulting in my reaction in class, the skills gained helps me to reflect myself with others, it keeps reminding me that self-awareness as a crucial part in interacting with others, to know what people’s trying to express you have to understand yourself as a first priority. IPC skills improved my perceptions and behavior with other people in class. By comparing myself with others helps me to identify what my qualities are and what I dislike about myself.
I have learnt and implemented the skills by observing someone’s personality and judge myself negatively because sometimes I do not like some particular aspect of my personality. I have also found out that listening is one of the skills that really helps me to become critical thinker, it shows me the direct path in the concept of evaluating , responding , receiving and understanding of what others perspective. Ultimately, IPC indeed effect on the responses we receive from our friends, family and coworkers, it is vital that we should pay attention to the way we communicate. There are many bad experiences that we may have faced because what we said came out the wrong way.
I am personally concerned that IPC is central to our everyday lives, because we communicate to develop identity, establish and build relationships with others, we also count on others to care about what is happening in our live and helping us to sort through problems and concerns, it encourages our personal and professional growth.
