Communicating With The People Who Don’t Emote

Communication is a process of “sending, receiving and resending” information from one person to another. Although effective communication is a pretty difficult task in its own right, it can become even more difficult when the person you’re talking to doesn’t emote or respond with emotional cues or facial expressions to help facilitate in the communication. The ability to get good results with people who demonstrate flat affect or more stoic expressions by really understanding each other is still real. Here are some basic solutions to get the most out of your communication, even with people who sometimes are harder to read than others.

Don’t Take It Personally


Humanize Them
