“Haragei” is the Japanese art of communication without pronouncing words. In fact the rumors of the telepathic abilities of Japanese are exaggerated. Their art of guessing the thoughts of the interlocutor is based on the natural politeness and delicacy. It seems that to guess the intentions and wishes of a stranger is a difficult task but Japanese deal with that every day. To start with try to guess the thought of your close friends of relatives. It is easier than anticipating the next phrase of a completely unknown person.
Social communication is becoming weaker and weaker with the flow of time. In the world full of TV shows and programs we somehow tend to ignore the fact that we get addicted to them and all the communication we get is just the TV set or the favorite series.
Nevertheless, psychologist say there are certain reasons for our distracting from real social relations and communication for sake of the TV shows. There are always a lot of interesting events in a show. They meet each other, love and hate each other, save and kill each other…It’s like the whole interesting life in one sack and that’s why we get addicted to them.
