Hopefully no one will jump on me for making what may seem as a silly suggestion, but the typeface and size aren't the most eye-pleasing - a bit hard to read. Might I suggest a bit smaller and Arial or Verdana?

I'll delete this topic (as to not clutter up space) at your request :p

I thought that this topic might be appropriate for this community seeing as we are all e-communicating.

What are your thoughts about electronic communication? These days, every second person (if not more) uses MSN messenger, or some sort of chat/messaging service, message boards, etc. How do you feel that communication changes, especially with those you are familiar with outside of cyberspace (people you know in person)?

Do you feel that it has many flaws that lead to general miscommunication? ...especially when it comes to relationships. This may apply more to some than others, particulary those that spend a LOT of time on a computer (such as myself) and use Messenger frequently. The more I use it, the more I see how online communication gets totally lost and warped.

Just posting to introduce myself. I got this link from the yorku community and it seems to have much potential for some interesting discussions.

Lately I'm becoming more and more interested in communication, and am glad to see a community devoted to the topic. I am a visual arts & professional writing major, but I think that, regardless of your key interests/specializations, communication is more important than a lot people realize. Effective interpersonal communication especially is not valued nearly enough, which is possibly one of the biggest causes of interpersonal conflicts, whether they are romantic, familial, professional...etc. [cheesy joke] So let's all communicate about communication - yay! [/cheesy joke]

So those are my thoughts for now. I also did one of those enneagram tests - the 9types one, the results of which are in my livejournal. I have yet to figure out how to post intricate little links and stuff to specific journal entries, or sub-topic pages (I doubt that that's the proper term...) so if you'd like to see my results you can see my journal which is just jam-packed with fun fun fun!

Bye for now!

Hello :)

I saw this group linked on the York U group, and it sounded very much like something I could use.

(a little bit about me and my reasons for joining...)Collapse )

I'd like to learn how to have more success in my own self-expression and understanding, and I'm glad to know there's a group of people with similar issues and goals.

In closing, I always find it amusing that many speak with such conviction that there was is "the" best, right and/or only way because I have a hard time believing that! :-)

I tried finding communication style quizzes and good group communications/dynamics links but I couldn't find them; do you know of any?

I'm Izzy (moderator of this group) and as much as it can be difficult for people to understand me and vice versa, I strive for the holy grail of communication synthesis! :-)


Please introduce yourself and include results of questionnaires (but not the picture graphic quizzes (from places like Quizilla), unless it's from one of the links on the info page).

And maybe one day we can meet and find some common ground or reach enlightenment...
