Which approach do you take when having a discussion and giving someone information about something? Do you take the straightforward approach and tell them straight out the information even if they don't agree and it's hard for them to hear certain things? Or do you try to be gentle when telling them the information?
Me personally, I do the second approach. For one thing, I'm the type that worries about upsetting people. And so when I give information about something, I try to do it in a gentle way so they focus on the message and not on being angry. However, I believe that being honest with people is better than being politically correct. And so I give them the facts but in a nice way. I'm into finding the middle ground, sticking with the facts while delivering it softly.
Of course, some topics I stay away from if I feel that the person totally won't understand. However, if I feel they're open enough, I'll discuss it with them.
I know I shouldn't care what people think, and if it's something important, I should tell them. But I do care, and so I don't mention it. However, I might if I gather a lot of info to support me.
So what approach do you do?
