Describe a time when you told your friend an important truth
You should say:
Who your friend is
What the truth was
What your friend’s reaction was
And explain why you think it was important to tell your friend the truth
My friend Sophie is a very open person who expresses any feedback very bluntly (直率地),no matter ifs good or bad. I have experienced her straightforward nature many times. I know that she intends to help and not to insult, but many times other people and I get offended due to this.
Hence, I told her that she was a very kind and lovely person; however her feedback hurt my feeling, if she could try to use the Sandwich feedback technique, her suggestion might sound more acceptable. She was shocked to hear it and tried to explain that she didn’t mean to it. Then she asked me further about what ‘Sandwich feedback technique, was. More specifically. With this technique, you start by giving a positive, encouraging statement. Follow that with constructive criticism, and then offer some more positive words. The positive statements are the “bread” of the sandwich, and the criticism is the “filling”.
She appreciated my suggestion after understanding the detail. And I think it was very important to tell her this truth. Firstly I am her best friend, and I have to help her. Secondly; she could better understand other people’s feelings, avoid her feedback falling on deaf ears, and improve her communication skill. I felt happy that I shared this technique with her.
因此，我告诉她，她是 一个非常善良和可爱的人;然而，她的反馈伤害了我的感情，如果她可以尝试使用三明治反馈技术，她的建议可能 听起来更容易接受。她听了很震惊，试图解释她不是故意的。然后她进一步问我什么是“三明治反馈技术”。更具体 地说。用这个技巧，你可以从给出一个积极的、鼓舞人心的陈述开始。接着是建设性的批评，然后再说一些积极的 话。肯定的陈述是三明治的“面包”，而批评是“馅”。
她了解了细节后，非常感谢我的建议。我觉得告诉她真相很 重要。首先，我是她最好的朋友，我必须帮助她。其次，她可以更好地理解别人的感受，避免对自己的反馈置若罔 闻，提高自己的沟通能力。我很高兴我和她分享了这个技巧。
