Principle of GSSG

GSSG is an acronym of general - specific - specific - general. It is a general principle of studying or learning new technology or knowledge. Have you ever listened to a professional explanation so boring that you feel sleepy? For example, you needed to learn a foreign language and went to a language school, where you first received a general lecture. They talked about the history of the language, how it was developed, and how it developed into its present structure. You would start to feel sleepy within five minutes. In contrast, you might have come across someone who could explain highly technical matters, generally boring issues, that kept your interest for the entire presentation.

In school, we all had our favorite teachers and those we did not like much. There were popular teachers and not so popular teachers. What was the difference? It makes a large difference in the power or degree of persuasion if one applies simple analysis to his understanding and how he constructs his explanation of logic. I call this analyzing methodology GSSG. Let us examine one by one.

- The first G is for first generalization. In this stage, one needs to examine if he fully understands the basics about what he is trying to explain to others. This is an important stage in giving your explanation power and persuasion. This forms confidence and clearness on what you hope to talk about. At the same time, one could find points he did not understand. This stage, if successfully completed, is useful for the second step.

- The first S is specialization. In this process, one would study more about his theme, topic, or technology. One could be a specialist on his subject. He needs to raise many questions and find their answers. It is in this process that he would meet and listen to an expert if available. Although it is not mandatory, it is useful to listen to how this person talks, and use his or her speaking style to help prepare your own presentation.

- The second S means more in-depth Specialization. This step is about deepening your understanding. After gaining familiarity with the subject, you can now form your own opinions about that knowledge. After this step, you should be able to discuss the subject with experts, and indeed, you will have become an expert yourself. It is advisable to meet with many authorities on the subject to discuss it with them. Take note of how effectively they talk about their area of expertise.

- Finally, the last G stands for Generalization Recurrence. You need to remember that the members of your audience are not experts. Though they are interested in the field, they are only laymen. You need to remember your own first stage of Generalization. First, you should write your script however you like, but when proofreading, you should carefully eliminate any technical terms and replace them with more general vocabulary, and if you cannot do so, you must give a full explanation of the term. At this stage, you may consider using analogies to help your audience understand you.

You are now ready to present your expertise in a way that is both easily understandable and interesting. Well-trained and truly knowledgeable people always speak in such a way that the general public can easily understand them.
