[Quote No.69424] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"[Morality and ethics; empathy, compassion and the 'Golden Rule' of treating others as you'd like to be treated:-] A blow with a word strikes deeper than a blow with a sword. [While this seems at first hard to believe, especially as most people who grew up in the 20th century are familiar with the playground ditty 'Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me'. But if you stop for a moment and consider Maslow's Hierarchy of (Human) Needs it makes more sense. This is because most people, after their basic physical needs for safety and food, etc are met, next feel most strongly their needs for social appreciation, respect and status. This is especially important to children and the young who need things from parents and other adults. Therefore any verbal negativity regarding them suggests to them that people may not be there for them when they need help and so they can feel more hurt and in danger than a physical altercation that's quickly over and forgotten, without any lasting animosity or threat of further violence. Hence regardless of your own need or not for social acceptance it is very helpful in human relations to be very respectful of other's self-image and self-regard as any perceived slight to these can result in resentment, anger and retaliation - even to the point of what to all but the instigator is irrational violence. Many examples in jail can attest to this with their legal cases, where the rationale of being 'disrespected' is often used as justification for all sorts of crimes. In conclusion then it seems wise, when dealing with others and trying to empathize with them to be very sensitive to any statements that could be perceived as unnecessarily negative, impolite, harsh, threatening or aggressive. This will help you have greater tact and diplomacy which in turn should give you more peaceful, enjoyable and rewarding social interactions.]" - Robert Burton
(1577 - 1640) English scholar and vicar at Oxford University, best known for writing 'The Anatomy of Melancholy'.
