10 Harmful Habits that Create Conflict
and Block the Flow of Healthy Communication
Do any of these ways of communicating sound familiar to you?
Check off the communication responses that apply to you/others
__ 1. Insisting on being right, instead of trying to find common ground.
__ 2. Not being willing to meet others halfway, to try and find compromise.
__ 3. Minimizing how others feel and being focused only on your experience
__ 4. Using guilt to manipulate and control others, by making them feel bad.
__ 5. Reacting with impatience when asked to look at/change one’s behavior.
__ 6. Using sarcasm as a way to deflect away from what is really happening.
__ 7. Pretending not to hear what the other person has said, to avoid arguing.
__ 8. Poking fun, teasing or mocking that gets out of hand and becomes hurtful.
__ 9. Voicing a complaint about another in response to hearing negative feedback
about yourself, instead of just listening and acknowledging what you heard.
__ 10. Having trouble acknowledging the hurtful effect you’ve had on someone else
and being willing to apologize and correct your response in the future.
