I have observed myself, as I do often, and I find that my repartee with people may tend to sandbag my true meaning of what I am trying to get across. I believe it to be a habit acquired over the years and in fact, I am directly spoken and to the point as close as I know how to be. I do not have time for jabber as it confuses the information being presented. This statement only applies to face to face and not to print.
A self-critique of my communication skills.
