However when someone hears the words “always” and “never” their critical thinking takes over. We all know there are exceptions to “always” and “never” statements and that they are not literal facts. So we need to clarify our language to convey that “always” and “never” are figurative or feeling words.

The idea is that ” It feels like you never listen to me” or “It feels like you always blame me. ” By adding “feels like” we avoid sidetracking into the exceptions of “always” and “never”occurrences. This ensures we are being clear and more likely to be heard and understood.

Being a good communicator is dependent upon learning to be a good listener. Although people are talking every day, good communication is not always taking place. To be a good communicator we need to be mindful of our words and tone.

Carol Anne Tavris (born September 17, 1944) [1] is an American social psychologist and feminist . A public intellectual , she has devoted her career to writing and lecturing about the contributions of psychological science to the beliefs and practices that guide people's lives, and to criticizing "psychobabble," "biobunk," and pseudoscience. Her many writings have dealt with critical thinking , cognitive dissonance , anger, gender, and other topics in psychology. [2]

Tavris took a year off from graduate school to write for a new magazine, Psychology Today . She returned to the magazine after receiving her Ph.D. and stayed for the next four years. She met Carole Wade, her future co-author, while writing for the publication; the two of them taught one of the first courses in women's studies at San Diego State University , and out of that teaching collaboration, they wrote The Longest War: Sex Differences in Perspective , an interdisciplinary approach to the age-old question of why gender inequality exists. [2]

In the 1980s, Tavris joined Carole Wade in writing an introductory psychology textbook, Psychology . It "was the first to explicitly and systematically integrate principles of critical thinking" into the introductory psychology course, along with mainstreaming research on gender and culture, with the goal of making the field more inclusive. Wade and Tavris also published Invitation to Psychology , a shorter version of their main textbook. As of 2015, Psychology is in its 11th edition and Invitation its 6th. [2]
