Predicting Response From The Audience

Many times we think we act or speak in a neutral way.
However, others may dislike our action or words.
This is expected as different people may have different preference.
A neutral word or action for some is perceived as negative by others.

Then, what is the solution?
As much as possible, we should predict the response from the audience.
Will our word or action offend them? If it will offend them, do we still want to go ahead and take the risk?

Such prediction is a skill. We won’t naturally have it, but we can obtain it.
It will require much trial and error too.
We may predict wrongly at times. But, it is still better than not predicting at all.

How do we reduce misprediction?
By knowing the audience personally, we can predict their response better.
Also, in case we mispredict, the audience will just overlook it.
