    Is it better or worse than trying to use tact and always having your motives questioned anyway? A lot of people, for instance, seem to find a male who isn't rude suspicious. I often get the sense that people, men and women alike, expect me to be rude and would find it easier to accept me if I was. Perhaps it would help them feel as though they have more control over me. I don't know.

It is not about faking cordiality, it is about creating a liveable environment for everyone.

    I agree with you, though. I think we're talking about completely different cases. I'm an extremely polite and considerate person. Look back over my posts The people I'm talking about are not being polite out of genuine consideration for others.

    Re: politeness or no..


    Wrap your message in language that will allow it to be delivered and properly received by the other party. That's kinda what communication is--sending and receiving messages.

    If it takes politeness and sugarcoating, go for it. If it takes a blunt delivery, go for it. There's no one-size-fits-all to communication.

    I treat that as an ideal, of course. There's no hope of reaching some people if you have to bend your delivery too far to cater to them.

    An example where I wish people would just be freakin' direct and blunt and get to the damn point already:

    "Well.. we had a lot of great contestants today.. and it was hard to choose a winner because everyone performed so well.. and the judges were afraid of having made the wrong choice and they feel bad for those who didn't win.. and [10 minutes of bullshit].. and the winner is [some guy] but the rest of you did well I swear to God."

    C'mon.

    Cool stuff. We're working with a fab lab to design and make toys for kids in need.

    Got a bunch of young professionals involved in the design phase, and they loved it. Many of them have been following up to build prototypes and all. Kinda cool to see designs come to life and to be shoved out there for a good cause.
