Less talk, less mistake.

That is the usual advice one can get in order to stay away from trouble in an awkward debate or conversation. It is said that if you do not comment about it even if you are being asked to and you have an idea about it, then it will be less troublesome for you. In my opinion, it is better to speak your mind so you can have the chance to explain or at least give an idea about certain issue that is needed to be addressed. If you are in such situation, would you keep your silence or talk freely?

ahh, i do, lol, i thought like that many times, and i felt i am safe at least my mind is calm without any disturbances or else i start reading a book, which interests me that time. But the truth is if we keep our mind cool we can be away from committing mistakes . Sometimes if we talk, the situations may even worsen , so in such conditions we better be calm and silent . silence does miracles sometimes.

Hi pogi253, Personally I don't think that it is less troublesome to comment when being asked unless what one says does not go through one's brain first. It is always better to listen carefully. Think before one speak. Is one's comment logical, sensible and relevant? Will one's comments offend the other party? If it does then it's better to keep quiet.

Hello, Yes you are right. If we have something in our mind that we think it would answer their questions and it would satisfy their needs of information then I think we freely divulge our thoughts and ideas. But of course we should be aware of what we are talking and sharing about because sometimes we did not even noticed that we are already harming them through our words. Speak wisely for us to avoid mistakes.

That topic is one of the things that we had discussed in a training that I had attended. I believe that we should speak our mind out and share what we thought or ask questions when in doubt. It cannot help if we just stay silent. Anyone can't go wrong. Just say so in a right manner without hurting anyone. I believe every person has a thing to say. Some just keep silent and regret later on that they should have told this or that or they have what ifs in mind

I would definitely speak up if I felt that my idea or comment might really help. I would only remain silent if I thought my idea were silly or minute. It is better to speak your mind but not if it is too far out there to be understood or agreed with. Depends on the peope you are amongst too.

Silent is a gold, but its not the best way to solve a problem. Less talk better then too much talk, so do the opposite. Its all depend on the sircumtances. I will keep silent if and only if I don't have an ability to answer and or don't have a capability to continue it. I will talk and give my opinions if and only if I won't kill my self with the words that I will talking to.

thanks for sharing such a nice discussion. Well u are absolutely right. We should have this art of listening more and speaking less. Most often we find ourselves arguing on one issue or the other without even having a detailed knowledge on it and this often lands us in a coup or an argument. So it is always advisable to listen more, talk less and understand even more. What say?
