In your dealings with other people, do not relate to them only with cold logic. Rather take their emotions and individual personalities into consideration.
These few words can take a lifetime to master. Speaking logically is generally straight and simple. But understanding the unique personalities and emotions of human beings is much more complex.
As a practical tool, focus on those who interact with you in an understanding, caring way. Learn from them.
(see Rabbi Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler - Michtav MaiEliyahu,
vol.4, pp. 244-5)
