Nobody is inborn intelligent though humans have the innate potential to learn, basic process of learning is by “trial and error” method. People make mistakes and learn from them. Unfortunately, people develop the habit to make mistakes. To avoid mistakes we have to go through the process of learning. This involves the identification of triggers which can be a person, place, situation or our emotions. Exposure to triggers leads the person towards learned behavior, by avoiding such triggers we can avoid unhealthy behaviors. Further process of learning proposes to develop insight by asking “what am I doing right?” and keep doing the right thing. Foremost thing is to create healthy relation with our own self. And in order to deal with others, suitable is to learn “refusal skill” or to say “no” so we can take care of our mental health. Our dealing with others also improves when we learn to understand non verbal language or body language. For example, crossed or folded arms represent defensiveness. But it also essential to validate the people’s body language with what they say.

People can know others before getting involve in the relation with the help of some stages. First stage is to know the person. Second gather information about that person. Observe the practical behavior of that person with others, especially with under privileged people like workers or waiters. Third stage is to know either the person is reliable or not. If he/she criticizes you, it’s an absolute no. Humans have the tendency to judge others, in doing so people must avoid stigmas. Genes play prominent role but we nurture ourselves from the environment. So there is a need to understand both factors objectively and to promote appropriate learning. It will be very helpful if people seek help from professionals or the people who are successful. To enhance your knowledge on various areas of life please click on the following links:
