2. Pay attention to facial expressions when listening to other people talk
Facial expressions while paying attention to the other person are also ethical. As much as possible when listening to other people talk, show facial expressions that match the topic of the conversation at that time.

Don’t interrupt other people’s conversations. You can only respond or give your opinion if he asks or the situation requires you to give him input.

5. Respond without seeming to strike back
Maybe you have unconsciously given a judgmental response when someone asks for your opinion. It’s not that I don’t want to accept criticism, it’s just that if it is conveyed in a bad way, such as attacking the other person, of course it will not solve the problem.

If there are mistakes above that you still often make, then that’s okay. Because you already know it, immediately learn to apply it in your daily life so that other people are also more comfortable talking to you.
