I think it comes down to how well someone is in tune with themselves. Often many of us DO have conflicting thoughts and we speak out anyway. I try to give people room to express themselves while I try to see what they are attempting to say. The way I look at it is that its as much my responsibility to understand as it is the other to make their communication understandable... it requires an open graciousness.
