How to win friends & influence people (2012 version)

In Humor on June 17, 2012 at 9:15 pm

In my 68 years on this earth, I have learned few things (and I am forgetting them quickly).

Nine out of ten people would prefer to proselytize (a fancy word for “sell”) than be proselytized.

Nine out of ten people are more interested in themselves than in other people.

Nine out of ten people are more convinced of their own correctness than in the information provided by others.

If you can identify that tenth person in any group you happen to be in, that person will buy anything you have to sell, will listen to everything you have to say with rapt attention, and will happily and enthusiastically join the cult you are starting.
