Weltanschauung What it Means

Active Rain 's Challenge - Weltanschauung

By Patricia Feager, 1/8/19

 

 

My years of experience on ActiveRain and in the business has given me a sense of belonging with people who share similar experiences in the real estate industry. Although I can make a case for each and every rule, I would have to say number 5 is extremely important because it touches on my values with regards to “constructive dialogue” between the membership which “fosters transparency among consumers about the industry.”

 

There is no doubt about it, consumers are bombarded with information from many different resources. Many sources are fake or exaggerated news. Members of ActiveRain who are truly supportive believe integrity matters. It takes self-discipline and courage to be respectful, even when there is disagreement. For example, in Texas, I only practice Texas Residential Real Estate. Therefore, if an ActiveRain member in another part of the country writes about a subject that is important to them that is the same, similar or different than how I practice real estate, I must put the consumer’s interest ahead of mine and not cause friction or become combative because that’s not what I do in Texas. Nor would it be respectful if I attempted to take away another person’s thunder to brag about what I do in Texas that is different. To do so would not serve the consumer or the best interest of the person who wrote the blog post. Nor would it align with the guiding principles of the Weltanschauung.  

 

Weltanschauung teaches us “that ActiveRain plays a key role in demonstrating the integrity and professionalism of those engaged in our industry.” Members are invited to examine the thoughts of others, learn something about the industry that perhaps they didn’t know, control their emotions and focus on “the integrity and professional principles” for all members.

 

In sum, cultivating constructive dialogue means letting go of what I think and listen to learn to what others have expressed on ActiveRain which in turn keeps me in check as a Member of ActiveRain and an advocate for professionalism.

for people will hear them and be influenced by

them for good or ill."

Well said Patricia in the spirit of expected ActiveRain standards set forth. Practicing  The Golden Rule also helps to maintain a helpful atmosphere here as well!

The way I see it, it takes about 5 seconds for a consumer to lose interest when someone contradicts what the author was trying to say. When the constructive dialog flows and makes sense, the consumer maintains interested and becomes educated.

It helps for other members to be mindful of "Fostering transparency among consumers." The blogger could have written an excellent article, valuable for consumer information; however, as soon as a comment casts doubt in the author's credibility, the consumer loses and the truth becomes questionable which is very unfair to authors and consumers. 

Thank you for your generous comments! Have a nice day.

Barbara Todaro - Since everything is subject to interpretation, it is critical to listen and think beforehand. For example, if I made a comment on your post, and someone from your audience from Massachusetts thought I was being negative, they may have been turned off by my comment. What if, that reader was getting ready to make a job transfer to my area? If I was pugilistic, disagreeable, or disrespectful to you, someone who has earned a credible reputation in your area, then the person thinking about contacting me may instantly change their mind about me. In other words, I would be shooting myself in the foot because of how badly I responded in my comment to you on ActiveRain. 

Think before you write is a good rule of thumb. One never knows who else is reading comments too! As always, thank you Barbara.

Gabe Sanders and Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR - LOL! I confess. I need to learn how to pronounce Weltanschauung fluently too! It is a BIG word with a lot of power that no one should ignore. 

I hope you both have reasons to smile throughout the day and stay happy!

By practicing "The Golden Rule" we consistently practice our values too! That's how we support one another. After all, people choose their environment. Nobody knows that better than you. I am so happy to know you as a result of ActiveRain.

May your day be just wonderful!

You hit the nail on the proverbial head, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP ... the opportunity, if willing, to learn here on AR is huge.  The message of your post is surely deserving of its Feature presentation ...

Patricia you hit the nail on the head when you stated:

"letting go of what I think and listen to learn to what others have expressed"

That advise services us well in all areas of life.

Your sage advice lends itself to serving us well in ALL areas of life, Patricia. I totally agree with avoiding being the contrarian on someone else's post - the public sees 'attitude' and moves on. While your contrarian statement may be right, being right isn't what's important. Excellent points - all of them!

Thank you Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, for this great post.  I am so glad this was featured. I practice the art of listening to learn and not to just hear the words while I formulate an answer to the "perceived" question.  Thank you for teaching me a new word in another language.  This will be a big hit at the next mixer. My last German word learned was Fahrvergnugen.

I learn so much here on activerain.  As a side note, I am currently catching up on my CE classes and Activerain was mentioned in the technology section of my courses.  How awesome is that?
