Stop The Interruption Cycle

The root cause of Polarization is interruption, and this has to be cut down by a full determination to understand each other and promise to:

  1. Stop Interrupting others.
  2. Pay full attention to the other person.
  3. Stay interested in where the discussion will go next.
  4. Don’t make an excuse for interrupting, like providing clarity or correction.
  5. Don’t be a smart-Alec.

If we are able to follow this, we can change the world.

Interruption is a destructive and violent act, and no matter what value the interrupter thinks that may be added by the very act of hedging one’s words in between, the speaker who is interrupted will never heal from the diminishing of his or her thoughts.

Research shows that even the best listeners of the world, professional listeners like teachers, therapists, counsellors, coaches, listen only for about 11 seconds at a time.

Interrupting humans were already doing a great job, but now the act is multifold, with the digital devices turning people into loud zombies who sometimes are impossible to talk to.
