wow....i always wondered about that....it`s the reason people say "Do you mind stepping to the side a little?" over "i need you to move"

they want the same thing....and they are essentially saying the same thing....but the other person is getting completely different messages....and as the saying goes

you soothe more X with Honey/sugar than vinegar...

i think what he basically said was clear and direct communication can have good and bad effects. There was nothing here that was really new, unlike the previous RSA Animate talks

"That was a fast 10 min."

Exactly what I was thinking. That was brilliantly done.

Hang on, I`ll save you 10 minutes listening to a guy, state the obvious:

People use "Veiled Comments" to avoid embarrassment and so they can, essentially, take it back claiming "that`s not what I was trying to say" in the even that the comment was not well received.
