Before speaking, make sure you pass the triple filter step. Reflecting first before saying anything is very important in communication. Socrates’ Triple Filter test is a good way to reflect on what you want to say. The first filter is truth. Are you saying something that is true? If what you will say is not true, then you should not say it. Even if what you will say is true, you still need to filter it to the next level. The second filter is goodness. when something is good, it must be beneficial to the listener. If it would not benefit him or if it would harm him, then don’t say it. If the thing you will say is true and good, it still needs to pass the final test. Appropriateness is the last filter. For it to be appropriate, it must be the right time to say it, the right place to say it, and you should say it to the right person.
