A Small Observation Regarding the Personal Touch
You know, some people, when they are talking to you, use your name and reach out to touch you because they are genuinely the sort of person who does that and to whom it comes naturally. Some people, when they are talking to you, use your name and reach out to touch you because they read somewhere that by using someone’s name and touching them during conversation, you can make them like you better and be more inclined to agree with you. Generally speaking, I know the difference between these two types of people.
As a point of information, if you are one of those people in the latter camp and think I do not know the difference (or alternately, you don’t know that someone else might, in fact, be able to know the difference), you will find that the trick works almost precisely the opposite of how you’ve read it would. I may or may not tell you at the time that your trick is not working, depending on my own inclinations, but you may be assured the information will be filed away for future reference.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.
