Discussion

When you want to communicate something, it is very easy to think that you have done this clearly, yet others do not understand what you meant. For clear communication, playing to the senses as well as the mind is important. It is also important that no one communication may be confused with another communication, as this could cause real problems. A simple principle is to use contrast to ensure each communication is clearly different from others, for example by using distinctly different wording.
