Hello friend,

A physicist is a scientist who interacts on daily basis with students, colleagues, superiors, and some times with clients also. When ever we interact with some one, we have to to very specific about our self. We have to convey the meaning of our views to make other easily understand.

Let me first tell you something about interpersonal skills, then you will get an idea about the importance of these skills. The interpersonal skills are the skills we use every day and every time when ever we communicate with other people, both individually and in groups. People who have worked hard on their interpersonal skills are very successful in personal and professional life. Now a days the employers in private companies seek those people who have strong interpersonal skills, so they can effectively communicate with colleagues and other people.


Person having strong interpersonal skills are perceived as calm, cool, confident, optimistic, analytical and charismatic. These are the qualities which really influence other persons.

Types of Interpersonal skills:

  • Verbal communication skills; how to say and what to say. we should not say too many things, our every word should have a meaning.
  • Non verbal communication skills; here we do not say a single word but our body language conveys the meaning, say for example, we use our eyes, hands, shoulders movement.
  • Listening skills; how we interpret the verbal and non verbal communicated words. We should be good listener, otherwise we will not be able to understand, what our students or colleagues want to convey us.
  • Anger management; this is very important, we should show anger when required to convey a effective message. Person who express anger in usual or common way, are not at all considered good personalities.
  • Negotiation; working with others to find a mutually agreeable solutions.
  • Problem solving; working with others to come to a common agreeably decision.
  • Assertiveness; communicating our ideas, beliefs, thoughts, opinions, needs and wants freely. we have to give respect to others thoughts and opinions also.
  • Choose your word: Be aware of words you are using when talking to others.
  • A physicist no doubt is a scientist but first he is also a human being, he cannot remain aloof, interaction with scientific community people is part of his job. To understand other and to make other understand, his interpersonal skills will matter a lot.
