Someone to Hate

Here are the worst ways to respond:

  •  Thinking your way is the only way. What does this look like?
    • statements that lock you into extreme positions you can’t back out of
    • stating facts that support your views while scanning the other person’s statements for evidence of lies, bad intent, and ignorance
    • asking few genuine questions
    • making assumptions about the meanings, intentions, and values of the other person without clarifying
  • Responding with unmanaged emotions. What does this look like?
    • anger, flippancy, or disinterest
    • frequently interrupting
    • personal attacks
  • Blaming others. What does this look like?
    • preaching; moralizing
    • making statements like: “This is not my fault” and “This was your responsibility”
  • Jumping to punishment. What does this look like?
    • ordering; commanding
