More often than not, the answer you’re looking to find is in the question being asked rather than the actual answer being given. Tune out the noise and, presto.
We’ve trained ourselves so well to ask or conversate in complete sentences we often overlook the obvious by visiting the whole instead of the specific.
Tune in, listen, let your intuition lead the conversation and you’ll hear the intended need rather than the conversation.
Think of it this way; conversations are more of an advertisement on the fringe than anything actual substance. Keywords though – those are the meat.
The next time you get asked a question try being quiet, pay attention to the movement of the eyes and the way the words are used – specifically how the asker stresses one or two words and then rephrase while stressing the specific words you picked up, back to them and watch how the body language adjusts for a full content conversation.
