Communication: magnetic words and toxic words


In our communication, both verbal and non-verbal, it is essential to use "magnetic" words and avoid "toxic" ones. Magnetic words are those that have a positive effect on communication, which reassure, arouse curiosity, are of value and are linked to emotions. Conversely, toxic words are those that can compromise the content of our sentence and create a negative atmosphere.


Magnetic words are essential to create a bond with our interlocutor and to convey an effective message. For example, using words like "thank you," "kind," "interesting," or "important" can make the other person feel valued and appreciated. These reassuring words can also arouse curiosity in the interlocutor, making him want to know more about what we are communicating.


Also, magnet words are related to emotions. Using words that evoke positive emotions, such as "happiness," "joy," or "love," can create a pleasant atmosphere and promote more effective communication. Magnetic words are able to emotionally involve the interlocutor, making the message more memorable and meaningful.


On the other hand, toxic words can compromise the content of our sentence and create a negative atmosphere. Three examples of toxic words are "impossible", "never", "problem" and "but". These words can limit the possibilities of finding solutions, create resistance in the interlocutor and generate a climate of negativity. For example, using the word "impossible" can make the other feel demotivated and discouraged, while using the word "but" can undo everything previously said.


In conclusion, in our communication it is essential to use magnetic words and avoid toxic ones. Magnetic words reassure, arouse curiosity, are valuable and linked to emotions, creating a positive bond with the interlocutor. Conversely, toxic words can compromise the content of our sentence and create a negative atmosphere. Carefully choosing the words we use can make a difference in the quality of our communication and how we are perceived by others.
