Escuchar con criterio propio - Listening with your own criteria

Por @latino.romano

Existe una especie de atracción casi imperceptible en la figura de alguien que habla con autoridad, o presume tenerla, y explica procedimientos y habla de instrucciones o consejos.

Es un encanto no reconocido que le confiere un aire de “verdad” al discurso que pregona quien viste elegante y se planta detrás de un micrófono.

No se puede criticar a quien pretende convencer a otros de sus ideas, pues es su trabajo hacer esto, razonar e inducir una acción en los demás; tal como hacen los vendedores.

Hasta se puede aprender mucho de las técnicas y estrategias de persuasión que utilizan y que suelen ser muy efectivas.

Pero pensemos en la persona que escucha el discurso y que es quien en definitiva recibe todo esa información y es el objetivo de las hábiles técnicas del orador. ¿Hasta qué punto debe escuchar con total credulidad lo que le dicen? Es la costumbre arraigada aceptar como palabra cierta lo que expresa alguien bien vestido y formal, sin apenas mostrar desacuerdo o cuestionar nada de lo que el otro diga.

Pero debemos estar de acuerdo en que esto no es lo más saludable, pues la experiencia ha demostrado que en innumerables ocasiones somos víctimas de un falso discurso, de falacias bien preparadas y de engaños flagrantes. También pudiera ocurrirnos que aceptamos como infalible una opinión que en nuestro caso particular no resulta acertada y luego sufrimos las consecuencias.

Tener criterio propio se enarbola entonces como la medida que mejor nos puede proteger ante tal problema.

Esto no significa que debamos ser de lengua ácida y cuestionar de manera amenazante a todo aquel que expresa su opinión o presenta una disertación ante nosotros. Esto se trata de ser más activos al escuchar planteamientos que pudieran afectarnos negativamente si no los entendemos o los estudiamos con prudencia.

La pasividad en estos ámbitos es peligrosa, por lo que se espera de nosotros tener la lucidez apropiada para saber cuándo algo nos conviene y cuando no.

There is a kind of almost imperceptible attraction in the figure of someone who speaks with authority, or presumes to have authority, and explains procedures and speaks of instructions or advice.

It is an unrecognized charm that gives an air of "truth" to the speech of someone who dresses elegantly and stands behind a microphone.

One cannot criticize someone who tries to convince others of his ideas, because it is his job to do this, to reason and to induce action in others, just as salespeople do.

You can even learn a lot from the persuasion techniques and strategies they use, which are usually very effective.

But let's think about the person who listens to the speech and who is ultimately the one who receives all that information and is the objective of the speaker's skillful techniques. To what extent should he listen with total credulity to what he is told? It is a deep-rooted custom to accept as a certain word what is expressed by someone well dressed and formal, without hardly showing disagreement or questioning anything the other says.

But we must agree that this is not the healthiest thing, as experience has shown that on countless occasions we are victims of false speech, well-prepared fallacies and blatant deception. It could also happen that we accept as infallible an opinion that in our particular case is not correct and then we suffer the consequences.

Having one's own criteria is then raised as the measure that can best protect us in the face of such a problem.

This does not mean that we should be acidic and threateningly question anyone who expresses an opinion or makes a dissertation before us. This is about being more active in listening to statements that could negatively affect us if we do not understand them or study them prudently.

Passivity in these areas is dangerous, so we are expected to have the appropriate lucidity to know when something suits us and when it does not.
