In this series we will discuss psychological tricks which will help you in everyday life in implementing your strategies and understanding the strategies of other. Lets discuss one of such tricks.
Sometimes you get frustrated and you communicate your frustration and disappointment to others and definitely they feel it. Normally when something goes wrong we just say, " you didn't do this right". It is like a personal attack, it is direct and it is also accusatory.
But small change in phrasing can make situation better. You can completely transform your tone. This is a small change of words. This small change is called strategic Passivity. You can rationalize your message like this.
You can say, "This wasn't done right" . Now you are using passive voice and you are not offending or insulting anyone directly.
