Name Calling and What It Implies - Be Careful What You Say About Yourself When You Resort To Name Calling
I have never understood name calling. I really don't mean to be funny or humorous here, as some people pass off their offensive statements by saying it was meant as humor...
I guess I just never learned to call names, thank goodness, and have never understood the custom. Name calling is offensive to me. It is like an alien-outer-space-foreign language...does not compute at all. When my children picked it up at school, they got a good dose of cod liver oil. There are just better ways, at least to my way of living and thinking. Name calling speaks to a lack of thought of the situation and a lack of concern of how the situation will resolve itself.
The study of psychology teaches us that when someone resorts to name calling, it usually speaks to feelings of inferiority and a feeling of inadequacy of the person doing the name calling. People stoop to the process of name calling when they feel lesser and need to make themselves feel more powerful.
If calling someone a name upsets the person that is being called the name, then the name-caller feels more powerful because they upset them and had an effect on them.
The best way to deal with name-callers is to be calm and think about the reasons that they have called you a name. It has nothing to do with the person being called the name, and says a lot about the one doing the name calling.
I do not want to do business with anyone that is a name caller, nor do I want to refer my clients to them. Just not going to do that...
