How will your tone, or writing style, change based on the different types of people you will be communicating with online? Consider family, friends, classmates, and instructors in your response I believe my tone and writing style will change considerably when speaking family, friends, classmates and instructors. The reason why it will change is because I have learned that some jargons can be offensive, using words that relates to a person sex, age and the like can also be offensive to others. I have also learned that my tone is very important. How people receive what I am saying is al based on the words that is used. I have a personality that can appear to be very aggressive, assertive, and straight forwarded, and in knowing that I have to ensure that my tone is very warm and professional; even when I am speaking to friends, family members. The better we know the people we are communicating with, the more adequate and clear our writing and or tone of our communication will be. I also realize that in an online environment I have to maintain that same warm and professional expression. I try to use a tone that is appropriate for the conversation in which I am engaged in. Being a Pastor it is very important for me to ensure that my tone is always considered of other. Therefore; I must always keep in mind regardless of who I am writing to ensure that we are not being offensive in our conversation. You never know who will read your writings.
