How does gender socialization affect how we converse with others
Watch this video please:
What did you think of this film? How does gender socialization affect how we converse with others? Why do you think, given what we learned in the short film, we have so much trouble with communication?
Deborah Tannen mentions in her work that most relationships are troubled not because of bad people, but because of bad communication. She believes that often, we talk past each other, because men are direct speakers who talk to make points and women are indirect speakers who talk to convey messages about the relationship. What do you think of this argument?
