Linear Conversations are Better
December 12, 2021
In conversations, it’s important to acknowledge what the other person is saying. People want to feel like what they matter
It’s more efficient to have conversations in a linear way. If Bob says Y, Sue should awknowledge Y and then add what she wants, call it Z. But if Sue says ZY instead of YZ, Bob will be wondering while Sue explains Z how Z is related to what Bob said.
A conversation is collaborative storytelling and a nonlinear story is hard to follow.
