Observations on people

It may well be a good guide to people’s core beliefs if you listen out for some ‘tells’ everybody gives.

Words like ‘all’ versa ‘most’, ‘many’ and ‘some’

The first often shows prejudice or careless thought, the later all show thought and complexity analysis have taken place first

Words like, ‘I’, ‘we’ and ‘them’

The first either shows self importance  or confidence. Look for the later.

The second the need, for whatever reason, to attach an unknown army to the argument. Not necessarily with their permission.

The last, contempt in most cases.

A good first ‘read’ for me. The rest is for conversation or further study.


P.S. Attribution. I doff my hat to Penn and Teller and loads of Politicians. They taught me this
