Being one of the world’s most popular art forms, it was inevitable that these archetypes would find their way into film as well. In this essay I will argue that the
1. Stephen R. Covey writes, "Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen
One sign of poor listening that I remember, was each time Marie talked about her boyfriend and Sally tried to tell her that the he would never leave his wife; Marie appeared to listen but refused to take the advice to leave him. She could of maybe did some compare and contrast to her relationship and others to realize that Sally was right. If she would have listened to her, she would have saved herself the emotional rollercoaster and maybe could have found a man sooner. The second sign of poor listening was when the two couples were exiting the restaurant from their double date. Harry and Sally both expressed, separately, to Jess and Marie that it would be better for them to wait to call each other to protect the feelings of Harry and Sally. Jess and Marie obviously couldn’t wait to be together, so they got in the first cab they saw and drove away together. This illustration of poor listening could have been improved if Jess and Marie took Harry and Sally’s advice and waited a little bit to see each other again. The third sign of poor listening I witnessed was during one of Harry and Sally’s many conversations. He told her that it was merely impossible for a woman and a man to be friends. He stated that sexual relations would basically occur no matter what. Sally eventually forgot about, (and Harry as well
In Chapter 3, Listening, Gregory discusses the importance of listening to the speaker. Gregory points out that although the words “hearing” and “listening” are used interchangeably, they have two separate connotations. Hearing is picking up soundwaves with our ears, while listening is making sense of what the speaker is saying with our mind. I have now grasped the concept of what listening actually is. Two behaviors that I have observed or participated in are electronic usage during a speech or presentation and becoming distracted. As a result, I have decided to emphasize the importance of rejecting electronic intrusions and resisting distractions.
James Petersen (2007) uses five parts to describe the talking and listening to help us process a better way of communicating and understanding each other. They are provided to help us connect in our relationships with others. According to Petersen, most of us think we listen well, but we don’t. Not
Communication is an equal understanding of a message between a sender and a receiver. Demonstrative communication can take many forms in both verbal and nonverbal cues. The nonverbal ways of communication cannot only enhance a message, but also if done poorly, can hinder a message as well. With verbal communication, choice of words can be an effective tool. Senders of messages should choose vocabulary wisely, depending on the receiver. If not done properly, semantic noise can occur. Semantic noise is “when the receiver of the message doesn’t understand a word or gesture used by the sender or has a different meaning for the word or gesture” (Cheesbro, O'Connor, & Rios, 2010).
Development and adaptation of the western genre has occurred throughout the twentieth century in relation to the shift in context, this is still relevant. Stereotypes of a western genre and the context are determined by the time in which the film is being produced. The time in which they were produced determine how social construction, gender ideas, values and attitudes, the setting and SWAT codes are demonstrated. I have chosen to present this speech by looking at the film studied in class, and a film of my choice and how the difference in context has changed in the tie of these two films.
Film and literature are two media forms that are so closely related, that we often forget there is a distinction between them. We often just view the movie as an extension of the book because most movies are based on novels or short stories. Because we are accustomed to this sequence of production, first the novel, then the motion picture, we often find ourselves making value judgments about a movie, based upon our feelings on the novel. It is this overlapping of the creative processes that prevents us from seeing movies as distinct and separate art forms from the novels they are based on.
Thank you for your help on my discussion. When I read your thesis statement it sounds like your goal is to complete your degree. I also sense that learning the material in this class seems to be a vital piece to completing the entire degree. Is that where you are going with this paper?
Due to the fact that this type of listening is done in order to learn something new or simply understand a message, paying attention to information that only supports one’s values and beliefs while they ignore information that does not can significantly hinder how well someone engages in informational listening (Floyd, 2017, p.226).
For example, the “Streetcar Named Desire” movie was a real example of how theatre was a very powerful of art that addressed one of the big social issues at that time in the US. I also liked other examples and movies that we watched in class regarding theatre as a very influential form of art that was banned and faced by the power of the government. The government did that because they recognized the negative impact of theatre on their benefits and its impact in raising people’s awareness. In addition, I liked the movie in which orchestra members were interviewed to talk about how music is a form of art that bring people together and may solve big issues. I liked that many of the orchestra members were from different backgrounds and from different cultures as well; however, they all agreed that playing music is a very important aspect of their lives. In my view, that was a very good example of how music is a very powerful art tool that touch people’s feelings no matter where they are from and it may also contribute in bringing people together.
One question that must be raised is why the understanding of the listener is given the preference over the understanding
It is difficult enough to interpret words accurately, in fact, there are no doubt more misinterpreted messages than not (Cherney and Tynan, 1990). When the element of nonverbal is incorporated, the rate of misinterpretations increases dramatically (Elgin, 1980).
People tend to process incoming information quicker than its output by the speaker causing them to quickly jump to conclusions, evaluate, or predict what will be said next. "Most individuals speak at the rate of 175 to 200 words per minute. However, research suggests that we are very capable of listening and processing words at the rate of 6000 to 1,000 words per minute....This unused brain power can be a barrier to effective listening, causing the auditor to miss or misinterpret what others are saying."(Lewis 2003). Listeners are often side tracked when listening, whether it be internal or external distractions. People have a habit of only listening to what they want to hear instead of what is actually being said.
