Common barriers to communication



  1. Insufficient adjustment period: Sometimes communication heralds change for which the receiver needs time to readjust himself and his environment.
  2. Premature evaluation: There exists a tendency for people to prematurely evaluate communications, rather than to keep an open mind during the interchange.
  3. Fear: Fear that a complete disclosure of all the facts may lead to a sense of insecurity in the sender's mind often leads to incomplete communication.
  4. Failure to communicate: Since one cannot communicate everything, it is often necessary to select. This leaves the door wide open to selecting from nothing to only that much, which the sender feels important. However, the true message may not be the part which he has selected, but the part which he has left out.
