Lessons from Five Seconds of Summer

This week we are talking about the things we miss in communication. There’s a song that is out right now that really demonstrates the subtle cues we can overlook especially in relationship.

Everytime I hear Youngblood by Five Seconds of Summer, I am reminded of things I missed in a past relationship and one of the big reasons why I got into Facial Intelligence™ in the first place.

My favourite line is: “You used to call me baby. Now you’re calling me by name.”

I remember being in a relationship and being oblivious to its declining status. As I looked back on the latter months of the relationship, I realized that I went from being called by the pet names he had for me to Michelle. Anyone who is close to me doesn’t call me Michelle. At the very least, I am Mich to my close friends and family.

I don’t know why I didn’t notice the name change sooner, but when I did become aware of it, I knew there was distance growing and very soon after that relationship ended.

Now, I am very aware of the words people use. The words we choose can help discern what our Archetypal set point is and how to communicate better with each other. Those words also give us indications on shifts in the status of the relationships we are in whether they are personal or professional. Changes in the use of words, the tone with which they are said or a change in the frequency of words exchanged can give so much information about where we stand with others.

Facial Intelligence™ is about awareness: awareness that there is more depth to the features we see, but also awareness that there are always subtleties to all aspects of communication.

You learn about all of these nuances when you begin your Facial Intelligence™ journey with me. Stay tuned for the next run of Power Persuasion and Influence. You won’t want to miss it!
