The art of conversation is the art of loving one's neighbor. One must love one's neighbor. Love is honesty, benevolence, joy, usefulness, respect, tolerance, kindness, mindfulness, relaxation, and the absence of fear.
Honesty is the best strategy, and miraculously it always produces good consequences. Good it does not mean expected and does not mean that you wanted it or will be happy with it, but those that in a system-wide sense can be called good.
Everyone is afraid of being thought badly of. This is normal, we all live in a society. On the other hand, given that everyone is focused on themselves, people think about others solely about their attitude to themselves.
Breaking someone else's borders is an act of disrespect and aggression, which means that there is no love between you. But there is a thirst for power and pride. Keep your distance from those who don't understand the word "no".
The following ways can be used to create a comfortable psychological background: support by agreement, support by approval, flattery and admiration, approving gestures, sharing common interests and ideas.
No need to argue, no need to justify anything. You need to listen carefully and think about how you can use the situation for the benefit of the case. Even if I disagree, there is no need to argue. Say, "all right, all right, let's think."
In conversation, hold your breath more often. Your interlocutor uses this pretext to make you a listener, which is good. The more you listen and the less you speak, the more intelligent and smart in all respects you seem to others.
The most important thing in communication is to learn to listen attentively. Don’t get distracted, don’t idly observe flies while reflecting upon the nature of eternity, but listen with great and vehement interest, soaking in every word and gesture of your interlocutor.
