If you often express one thing, you can only describe it with simple sentences such as "so cute", "like", "good bad", etc. You cannot "specifically" describe the thoughts and things in your mind, and the various encounters in life. Circumstances, it is very likely that no affirmation can be obtained.
The book that I want to introduce to you today is about how to train a person to express one's own thoughts "concretely". The author is a Japanese creative producer-Hikita Yoshiaki. He has a book called "Hakuhodo スピーチライターが教える 5日间で言葉が「思いつかない」「まとまらない」「伝わらない」がなくなる本" The book is based on the story of the author teaching a colleague through e-mail.
The book emphasizes that as long as you follow the steps and complete the teaching steps in the book, you will have the opportunity to achieve:
＊Increase the amount of vocabulary, and the conversation will not get stuck!
＊When someone asks "why?", you can answer without haste!
＊Even if the other party suddenly questions, the answer is as convincing!
＊No longer insist on a single answer, more flexible thinking!
＊Speak in an orderly manner, so that images immediately appear in the other person’s mind!
＊In addition to being able to speak to the other's heart, it also allows the other to take action!
After reading the introduction in the book, I also tried to study myself. I am pretty sure that it is indeed effective.
However, the key point is to "persevere" to change and learn so that it can get better and better.
What are the steps in the book?
The book mentions that as long as five days, follow the steps, you can achieve results.
I personally think that just look at it. Don't believe in this magical effect. "Persevere" to learn according to the content of the book will have obvious results.
A brief introduction to the method in the book is also the method I am currently practicing!
1、Wake up the lazy brain
Many people can't express specific ideas to express affairs, mostly because of too few vocabulary. However, most of the words are already hidden in your brain, but the "lazy brain" put them aside, and you need to wake up!
Try to use exercises like "List 10 animal names in 30 seconds" to wake up your brain. It can also be graphics, flower names, deep-sea fish names, and so on.
Those words that are hidden in your mind will be released through your practice, such as diligence during commuting time and bathing. The author describes this as a firework, blooming brilliantly.
2、Practice using the five senses to describe things
If you eat a food that is delicious, you may subconsciously describe it as "delicious", "delicious" and so on. These are not "specific" to describe this food. The specific description should be "This food reminds me of the taste of my mother", "This food is rich in fats, and it tastes particularly delicious." Isn't this much more "specific" than the simple description of "delicious"!
The author mentioned that through the five senses, hearing, taste, sight, smell, and touch to practice description, the things and problems you see are the best. You can immediately express your thoughts "concretely" through your own experience and feelings.
To give another example, after watching a supernatural movie, simply describing it as "horrible" or "good-looking" seems not enough. Try to describe it with the sense of the five senses.
Adjectives such as "My friend was scared and crying by the side", "I squeeze the handle when I see it".
Through your own five senses, or the state of others at the time, practice constantly, recall descriptions, and give up simple adjectives "delicious" and "good praise" to effectively increase your ability to express yourself.
3、Connect the "concrete" descriptive words to form a series of sentences
When you wake up your brain and dig out the words hidden deep in your brain, the next thing to do is to combine these words into a moving sentence.
The descriptive sentences of news broadcasters are the best learning objects. how to say?
For example, when a sports event arrives, a news announcer will say: Today is a hot weather like an oven, football players still participate in the game with a enthusiastic mood, and the cheerleaders’ singing and dancing will make everyone forget the hot summer. , The next game must be extremely exciting.
As long as you have the heart, there are templates for learning everywhere. You may think that this level of learning seems too high, but it is not very good to have a good model of learning as a driving force for growth!
Make use of the time of driving or taking a ride, looking at the scenery outside the window, and turning the scene in front of you into a moving sentence!
4、Develop the habit of memorizing
The brain is the easiest organ to be lazy, so we should wake it up from time to time. And continuous memorization is one of the best ways.
Remember, use the "mirror".
When learning and memorizing things, put a mirror next to it so that you can reflect the expression on your face.
It is not necessary to memorize these new knowledge. The main point is to tell the brain that you can't be lazy!
The skill of memory is to amplify your body movements, while speaking out, while emphasizing the key points of the sentence.
5、Quickly summarize the key points of speech expression
The first to fourth above are to make you diligent in your brain, increase your vocabulary, and strengthen your memory. Finally, it is to summarize these into key points.
But how do you practice it?
The method is to use the "three key points"
After memorizing all your exercises, quickly summarize them into three key points. For example, after the meeting, summarize the three key points of the meeting. Or after reading an article, quickly summarize it into three essay outlines.
But how to capture the key points?
As long as it is mentioned in the meeting or in the article: "This is very important", "The conclusion is", "What I want to say is", etc., take notes as soon as possible. These are the key points.
In this way, with constant practice, you can escape from pure memory and reach someone who hits the nail on the head and quickly tells the point.
The above five methods are to quickly help you get started to solve difficult problems in expression.
I will continue to mention it later in this book
＊Develop the habit of thinking
＊Develop deep thinking logic
＊Rhetorical ability to reach people's hearts
＊Get a good relationship of trust
