What is Good? What information is Bad? Words can be the same but attitudes and opinions can be completely opposite! When both good and bad information is shared in a script, message, presentation, or conversation, the story and focus of the spoken message and endorsement can easily get muddy and confusing.
Adding Tempo Changes is the focus of Real Talking Tips Episodes 18-22. Comparing good and bad information fits right into that tempo changing challenge. Why? Good information needs to be said slower. Bad information should be spoken faster. Adding a smile when saying good information slows down the tempo. Not smiling or staying emotionally neutral allows the speech pattern to get faster. That’s because more facial muscles are required to smile than frown. Good information is also more positive when the palm of the hand faces up. Bad information sounds worse when the palms face down.
