    that's funny. Peolple in Brazil don't think that much about this - they just smile and say hello! If you have any subject to talk about, no problems. If you don't have, you can find one

    i think this book is a REALLY BAD IDEA>.

    so insincere.i would never use these techniques on someone i liked..

    a bit of background - i work for an english conversation school so a lot of my day is taken up with varying degrees of "the chat",

    i NEVER apply the techniques that i use inside school to the outside world because while it would create conversation it would be false.i would not be enjoying the conversation so much as planning my next move.
    there are some teachers who do apply various conversation techniques outside of class and they are as obvious as a big old flashing light.

    Huuumm...

    Ok, they are techniques to have conversations. So what? Don't you think it is a good idea to got to a party wearing something strange so that people can ask you what it is and start a conversation? How about asking them "how do you spend most of your time?" as opposed to "what do you do?". Are those things manipulations or you are just having good conversational skills?

    I think the point of the book is not to manipulate people, but to help people communicate better and enrich people's conversations. Or at least that's why I bough it....

    I would never start a conversation with "what do you do" or "how do you spend most of your time" since it is entirely an uninteresting question.

    You lead the conversation to what people are. Needles to say a majority of the people is nothing so the conversation ends quickly. So you can move on.

    No way you can lose!

    Same logic, different day:

    How do you use your time? Oh, time is not a tool you can't use it.
    How do you pass your time? It's not bloody piss, is it? You can't pass it.
    How do you wile away your time? I wouldn't call working 15 hours a day in the salt mine, wiling away!
    What do you do, with your time? What can you do with an abstract concept?

    Never ends does it?

    No, I'm not funny.

    You implied it. You mentioned it. You use it. Admit it.

    I don't understand this. What if that person gets angry because they think you want them die or you foresee their death?
