If our choice is POSITIVE feedback：
【Teacher’s NOTE: An example of a typical paragraph of the body】
I am prepared for the idea of the opposition. One of their considerations may be that being straightforward about the shortcomings is efficient communication of key ideas. After all, often, when we give feedback about a job, we are to make negative comments in the hope that the colleague or classmate can improve upon the feedback. At this point, the positive feedback seems to be beating around the bush. However, many of my coworkers respond unfavorably to the criticism about their work if they are not recognized for the merits of their performance first, and they find the negative feedback offensive. The lesson is that we should praise the performance before we point out the limitations, and the coworkers would otherwise feel offended. In light of the above, courtesy is my first consideration. As a matter of fact, not only do they feed offended, they also show strong resistance to the criticism.
【Teacher’s NOTE: However, today, we are introducing a technique in making an argument: Consider consequences of taking the action.】
Recipients are likely to defend themselves and resist the criticism as the immediate response to the negative feedback. As a result of the defensive mechanism as part of human nature, the listener or reader becomes inaccessible to any comments. 【Teacher’s NOTE: Consequence 1】← Contrast → The contrary is that acclaim can open our listeners’ or readers’ mind, making our feedback, including the negative one later, acceptable. 后文blah blah blah略。
As we may often give negative feedback, we may get used to picking onothers, and the next step is that we become fussy critics and annoying.【Teacher’s NOTE: Consequence 2】← Contrast → The opposite case is that we develop the eye for merits of others as we are used to giving our approvalsbefore we expect more of others. 后文blah blah blah略。
