The COVID-19 pandemic heavily affects society. The Japanese government requested people to stay home when a state of emergency declared nationwide. It might be necessary to prevent the virus from spreading. But there are harmful effects.
One of the bad effects is a decline in communication skills. Staying home causes a low frequency of talking to others. It is a big problem for humans. Because humankind is a social animal. So communication skill is essential for human. If people lose their communication skills, lots of misunderstandings or conflicts would occur. Especially, a sales rep who doesn’t have communication skills couldn’t increase sales.
Any ability would decrease if we don’t use it. To maintain communication skill, we have to continue using it. So, I recommend calling friends on the telephone as much as possible when you stay home. Otherwise, you might forget how to communicate with others smoothly.
