  1. I think I understand clearly what you mean.

    That’s why it’s called social SKILLS. Part of social skills is adjusting to different situations and people, yet still being oneself. Just like if you were to make a speech to children, it were have a different ring to it than if you spoke to grownups.

    However, it’s important not to make assumptions about other people based on superficial appearances and start acting similarly to what one might assume they’re like based on, say, their ethnicity. Also, even when talking to children, it’s important to speak their “language” but not talk down to them.
