Do I communicate to other groups of people differently?
I think that I would like to say no, I'm the exact same person no matter where I'm at or who I'm with. Except I know that's not really true in reality.
When I communicate with Christians I probably throw an extra "it's all in God's timing" or a "oh I'll be praying hun" for good measure. But when I'm communicating to non-Christian's I try to stay away from Christian lingo, it's more general.
When I communicate to mom's I talk a lot about my kids, what they're doing right now, what we're struggling with, etc. When I communicate to women who aren't mom's yet I talk more about fashion, weather, date nights, movies, etc.
When I communicate to someone I'm trying to impress I gauge what they're interested in. When I communicate to my best friend or my husband I'm real and honest. When I communicate to my family, I laugh a lot.
I try really hard to not wear masks around people, to be authentic. But I also don't want to look like a fool, so I try to read demographics and locations. Like knowing when to say pop or soda, buggy, or shopping cart, carriage or stroller.
I really do communicate with people differently, mostly because I want each person I communicate with to hear me or to know me better on whatever level we're on.
