  • Rafał Dydkiem Machał
    Rafał Dydkiem Machał 3 months ago I learned a while ago that most people don't really listen to what a person has to say. Speakers with either natural or trained voice dynamics can say complete bullcrap and people will swallow it. How things are said change the way the content is understood. Even if somebody says the most fascinating things in the world, but with a dull voice, he won't be listened by most. People assume that dull voice comes from a person who doesn't believe what he's saying, so any message is lost.

  • Notcha Grandpa
    Notcha Grandpa 2 weeks ago (edited) Rafal machal: you're right, these trained speakers are taught the art of speech, not speaking, anyone can speak. Only those who are intelligent and naturally energetic with somewhat a deep voice and tone are listened to naturally, I was once trained in speeches, and how they discovered this technique, I know there has been hundreds of millions of dollars spent trying to formulate what makes one person great at speeches while others are smarter with a more important message that are never heard. We used to say quote "It isn't what you say that matters it's how you say it." These words are true today just as they were then.

  • C J
    C J 4 weeks ago (edited) Rafał Dydkiem Machał, agree especially about shallow YouTubers (who seemed to have learned it from this guy, or guys like him) and as was the content of this guy’s TED talk, too much emphasis on cliches and techniques rather than harmonizing with the soul of what you want to share and then bringing that out. I could have done a better job than this guy and I don’t fancy myself some great expert on public speaking. If this TED talk was to give the speech of his life in 18 minutes, as it says about TED talks in the description, i.e. the best short speech of his life about something his life is centered on or is emblematic of him, he must have a very dull and stupid life. It’s more emblematic of some stuffy Brit deigning to patronize us, even to gaslighting people, with his precious cliches while telling us something that actually adds nothing.
  • Rafał Dydkiem Machał
    Rafał Dydkiem Machał 1 month ago (edited) GG T87 there are also people with traumatic experience, which freezes their energy and makes their voice monotonous. Almost nobody listens to these people, even though they have a lot to say. It’s pretty sad that we idolize mediocre YouTubers, who have only one talent - talking dynamically. Their content is often very shallow.
  • GG T87
    GG T87 1 month ago @Fake NooseI'm a self diagnosed attention deficit; so when I speak to someone it's their duty to have an engaging tone so that I can keep listening. Otherwise, I completely switch off

    greg james 6 months ago (edited) From your point of view, might I ponder; If in fact people have two ears and only one mouth but are several times over wanting to speak more effectively than to listen more often . . . Might it therefore be reasonable that people would prefer to blather on & on whether another wants to hear it than to just listen and determine when it's time to go to listen to someone who actually knows what they're talking about is better to be heard?

  • A God
    A God 2 years ago (edited) @Just Someone​​ I look at this idea as speakers and microphones. The ear is a microphone, the mouth is a speaker. I should be able to control what the microhone hears simply by speaking casually and calmly, in an even voice, addressing commonalities humans have in mass. An example is weather. I once had a job listening to hidden microhone. The suspect was considered a minor player and was watched for collusion. With criminals. Every time we thought we had him,nothing happened. We decided the man knew or suspected he was bugged and was feeding us false information. We upgraded his status to cagey intelligence and tightened our surveillance. Still nothing. The more he eluded us the more suspicious we became. Still nothing. We began to question our own intelligence. Therein we found our inner demons echoing in our own paranoias. He turned out to be an average Joe, clean as a new car,and absolutely oblivious to out own complicities. These demons are the enemies of speaking to be listened to.

  • Nineth Lion
    Nineth Lion 2 years ago @sharkam69 You can always divide views by time since upload and then compare. If one has 7.4 million views after 2 years and the other has 1.3 million views after 5 years, I pretty much doubt that the OP was irrelevant. I'm only using your comment as a reference however, I haven't confirmed the upload dates. Even then this one has a rate of 3.7 million views/year and the other one has almost 300k views/year...

  • palmomki
    palmomki 2 years ago @Cedric Wehrum In Youtube, you have two separate settings for "language" and "content location" - I think the second one is assumed to be "where you're from". It might or might not be because of that.
  • Cedric Wehrum
    Cedric Wehrum 2 years ago Yeah, I copy & pasted the numbers from my browser. Personally I always use the English notation because my OS is set to English. But YouTube shows me the German notation although the language is set to English in the Google settings... (Probably depends on the IP address as I'm from Germany? ← Yes you were right @Fire Flieer​ ) However I think everyone still understood what I meant ;-)

  • Wells Shewench
    Wells Shewench 1 year ago Seems like the obvious thing to do..You'd think! However, this is sadly not the case with the majority of folks i have met over the years from all walks of life. I'm not sure intensely listening to what people say then delivering any needs or wants they seem to be lacking is the best way to approach these kinds of situations. Surely a conversation should always be a two way street which is not always optional (work, family) and if that's not the case then it's best to just find pastures new, or if you're like me challenge them a bit, say something borderline outrageous.(tactfully!) to gain their attention if they're just mindlessly jabbering away at you. It kinda snaps them outta of it for a bit. Sometimes they even look relieved and start being more themselves. What most people lack is self awareness, and with social media taking over iv'e noticed more awkward face to face interactions than ever. I'm not suggesting these people are stupid it's just easy for people to get caught up in all the bullshit , and themselves! Since you're already massively aware i'm sure you'll make great company for anybody you interact with, just gotta find the right people uh?
  • Marcos Ross
    Marcos Ross 1 year ago +Wells Shewench Yes indeed. where can we find people to listen to us. In the mean time, I will just listen to others. Then I might discover what they want / need. Then I can deliver their need. Wait a minute. Suppose they all just need someone to listen. Sure I guess I could do that.
  • Wells Shewench
    Wells Shewench 1 year ago What if you're British with a British accent living in Britian? Does that mean we listen to each other more than other cultures? Nobody really listens most of the time, they're generally just waiting for you to finish what you're saying so they can speak about themselves. Maybe i should move to whatever country it is you live in to have a better chance of being listened too.

  • liar liarliar
    liar liarliar 3 years ago +Gabriel Garcia You don't have to have to be British to do this, It;s just that the British ruling class have long understood and used the techniques described here. It was Shakespeare who taught the power of words to the English, they then went out and used that power on the world. But you don't have to be British to apply these methods, think: Barry White, James Earl Jones, Ray Milland, or Marlon Brando.
