All day long, I am having conversations with someone who is very intelligent and very nice. I am learning more about his life and his world. Our conversations, which I take to be polite, are not. This is what I call telegraphic speech psychology, which is when people communicate with a certain style of communication, such as spoken or written language, rather than with the person’s natural language.
The first time I realized this was when I was in a library, listening to a fellow English major explain how his life had been upended by the end of his college finals. He said he had gone to Europe to do his master’s degree and had learned how to speak French. The second time I realized it was when I was sitting in a cafe in Florence and watching a student studying in Italian.
As it turns out, it’s a very common psychological phenomenon that you can speak very well without learning to speak at all. In fact, a new study conducted by University of California at Berkeley psychologist, Dr. Michael Hsu, has found that most English speakers can learn to speak without learning to speak. The study involved four men who had been trained in English speaking while in college, and then given a second chance to speak in English while they got a job.
The men who were trained in English spoke about 75% of the words they knew and then had a chance to speak English in the normal way. The other 25% were given a second chance to speak English in the same way. The men who had been trained in English spoke a sentence and then had another chance to speak English in the same way.
This study is important because it shows that your English speaking skills are correlated to your speech patterns. If you’re a native English speaker, you’re going to be speaking like a native speaker, but you might not be able to read and understand other people’s English. Likewise if you’re an English learner who just learned a second language, then you might not have the vocabulary to accurately speak in your native language.
Our study found that the more English speaking you are, the more likely you are to be a native speaker. But you might also be more likely to be a native speaker if you have a more intense learning style. English learners who were able to speak and read in their second language (a relatively rare phenomenon) were also more likely to be native speakers.
The study also found that people who spoke both English and their native language with the same frequency as native speakers were less likely to be native speakers when they learned their first language. Because language learning is a multi-step process that involves a lot of internalization, there was a tendency for people to be less fluent in their second language if they were not forced to internalize it.
Although it can be easy to get stuck in a loop and fall into a hypnotic trance, it’s also important to maintain a clear boundary between your inner world and your outer world. The trick is to stay aware of where you are and what you’re doing while you’re doing it. And when you’re not, you can still be aware of your inner world by not talking to people.
Another tip: when youre in a hypnotic trance, you can stay aware of your surroundings by keeping your eyes on your breath. Even if you have the ability to hear your body moving, your eyes still watch the world around you.
People who are in hypnotic trance can experience the same sensations as other people when they’re not. But in a trance, there is also a heightened awareness that the self is not present. With this heightened awareness, trance becomes a great state for learning about one’s inner world.
