Gesagt, aber nicht so gemeint … Auch die Aussage von Precht, er sei offenbar falsch verstanden worden, ist hier nur eine Ausrede, jeder kann anders verstehen, als ein Sender sendet! Das ist Grundwissen seit Schulz von Thun, Kommunikation mit vier Ohren Modell.

Liebe statt Hass

Wenn Sie ein nettes Gespräch mit Ihrem Barista in Ihrem Stammcafé führen, werden Sie das Lokal mit ziemlicher Sicherheit besser gelaunt verlassen. Wenn Sie viele dieser Interaktionen erleben, werden Sie, das haben Studien gezeigt, zu einem freundlicheren Menschen. In der Wissenschaft sprechen wir von einer Steigerung des prosozialen Verhaltens. Das heißt, dass Werte wie Großzügigkeit, Vertrauen, Bescheidenheit und ein Gefühl der Verbundenheit zu Ihren Mitmenschen wachsen. Diese Werte werden ebenso in einer gesunden klassischen Beziehung gestärkt.
