You quieter you are, the more you can hear. And the chances of you being branded as the friendly, neighbourhood serial killer increases by 67%
Quiet people appear serious and intelligent, usually. Especially if they are wearing glasses. But they can also be thought of as a deaf-mute-Chinese chimney-sweep, sweeping away 1-2-3 with a smile on his face. People are busy. No one will notice you. So you automatically get your shiny, black invisibility cloak! You’re invincible! Or you can be written off as a spastic child. The kind who has nothing to talk about.
Verbal communication is an art. It is also perhaps a science, considering civilizations have been built on the basis of human communication. And we have evolved since the time of hieroglyphs
We have had a Demosthenes and a Seneca, an Anthony, a Steve Jobs and a Rahul Gandhi. Nations break and build on the basis of powerful oratorial skills. Because people are suckers for motivation. People also like talking. Mostly about themselves.So it’s never a bad idea to just listen. But maybe throw in a word or two here and there.
My previous blog was named “In secret be quiet say nothing.” As you can see, I have a new blog now. Conscious decisions, etc.
