Describe a person who shows his or her feelings openly
You should say:
Who the person is
When and where you first met the person
Why you think the person is extroverted / open
And explain how you felt about the person
My friend Sophie is a very open person who expresses any feelings very bluntly, no matter it’s good or bad. We met each other at the university a few years ago, and I have experienced her straightforward nature many times. For example, last month when my boyfriend’s birthday was coming, I spent two hours making a cake as the birthday gift. Before I presented it to my boyfriend, I asked her opinion first. And she commented that it tasted good but looked like shit.
To be honest, her comment annoyed me. I know that she intends to help and not to insult, but I did get offended due to this. She is a very kind and lovely person, who is very secure about herself and is not afraid to show her true self.
However, sometimes I think that she should learn some communication techniques, such as Sandwich feedback technique, to make her suggestion sound more acceptable. More specifically. With this technique, she could start by giving a positive, encouraging statement. Follow that with constructive criticism, and then offer some more positive words. The positive statements are the /zbread,/ of the sandwich, and the criticism is the “filling”. I believe that she could better understand other people’s feelings, avoid her feedback falling on deaf ears, and improve her communication skill.
故事简介：我的朋友苏菲是一个非常开放的人，她非常坦率地表达任何感情，无论是好是坏。我们是几年前在大学 里认识的，我多次经历过她率直的性格。例如，上个月当我男朋友的生日来临时，我花了两个小时做了一个蛋糕作 为生日礼物。在我把它给我男朋友看之前，我先问了她的意见。她说味道不错，但看起来像屎。
但是有时候我觉得她应该学习一些沟通技巧，比如三明治反馈技巧，让她的建 议听起来更容易被接受。更具体地说。有了这个技巧，她可以从一个积极的、鼓励的陈述开始。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”。我相信她可以更好的理解别人的感 受，避免对自己的反馈置若罔闻，提高自己的沟通能力。
