Two different Antennas


Neville


Us humans are horrible at sending and receiving messages.
How many dumb-ass arguments have sprung up between friends/employees/lovers because of dumb misunderstandings?
 
In a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship it might look like this:
Him: "I want to spend tonight alone at my place."
Her: "Oh my god what did I do wrong? Something clearly must be wrong!  Are you breaking up with me?!????"
 
In a boss/employee relationship it might look like this:
Boss: "Can you take out that pile of garbage please?"
Employee: "This asshole is always giving me the worst jobs....I know he has it in for me.  I can't wait to quit this shitty job....."
 
 
In both these examples, the situation just spiraled out of control for almost no reason.
....actually, there is a reason:

There was static between the Sender and the Receiver.    


 
The Sender is the person sending the message.  Here he is represented as a "sending signal" that I stole from the internet:


Sending a signal






 

The Receiver is the person getting the message.  Here he is represented as a "receiving signal":




Receiving a signal




 

 

 

 

 

So in a normal conversation with your best friend, if everything is perfect (no one is tired, intoxicated, or emotional), the exchange of messages can go pretty smoothly, like this:




Sending and receiving







BUT.....nothing is ever perfect in personal human communication!!


There are literally hundreds of subtle things that screw up our Senders and Receivers like:



  • Body language cues we don't even realize we're giving off.
  • Pre-conceived notions we have in our heads.

  • Different values and opinions.

  • Different experiences with situations.

  • Varying levels of intelligence or knowledge. 

  • The Sender is bad at communicating.

  • The Receiver is bad at communicating.

  • Both Sender AND Receiver suck at communicating.


 

So very often the Senders message is all static-y by the time it gets to the Receiver.....and the Receiver might be all static-y too, just compounding the problem!!





Static between communication







So of the hundreds of things that cause static between a communication, it might end up looking like:


Mom: "You're only 12, you can't go to that rock concert alone."

Mom's Intention: To protect her young daughter from a seedy event.


Daughters Reaction: "You think I'm a little baby and can't do anything by myself, you never let me do anything fun you jerk."


(I can't wait for my future kids to say that so I can slap the hell out of them)!




OK smarty......so how the f-heck can we clear up all this misunderstanding??



Well for personal interactions, that's a very very difficult question.  



But for business, it's waaay easier.  


Bidnaazzz is all about delivering a certain value for a certain price.
So it's MUCH more simple.  

 

 

Google:

YOU enter what you're looking for on our website.  

WE will find you the best result and show you a small ad in the process.  

 

 

Netflix:

YOU pay us $8/month.

WE let you watch all the TV and movies in our library.



Individual Web Designer:

YOU pay me $1,000.

I will build you a full Wordpress website.

 

 

When there's a clear "WE do this" and "YOU do that" exchange, it makes things A LOT easier.  

 

It's what I've built my Kopywriting Kareer on:

I change the words on businesses, so they send a clearer message.  That results in mooar monaay. 

 


This art is known as "Copywriting".  And if you learn it well, it will permeate everything you do.

P.S.  If you wanna watch a fun misunderstanding, here's one of my favorite scenes from Pulp Fiction where Vincent gets mad at The Wolf: 

P.P.S.  For today, when someone pisses you off, try to think if that person DELIBERATELY meant to piss you off....or if it's perhaps just a simple mis-communication.  All that pissy-talk in your head is very draining on yourself, so it's easier to rationalize that the person isn't being complete asshole, and you two just had a bit of static between the Sender and Receiver.
