Many people think I’m knowledgeable. Honestly I am not.
Today I will share with you a little trick that I use to make people think that I’m knowledgeable.
The trick is to divert the conversation to a topic that you are good at.
To make this trick work, you must first be good in certain topic.
For me, I like to read about success philosophy, business success and biographies of successful people.
So if I want to impress people, I’ll divert the conversation to one of these topics.
For example, once I was having dinner with my wife’s colleagues, who were the top management of the company.
I had no corporate experience in my life.
So the topic that they were discussing were beyond me.
Then one of them said that something happened in the morning had ruined his mood for the whole day.
I caught that opportunity and talked about an anger management strategy, which I have shared with you in previous lesson.
They liked the idea, and I continued to lead the discussion to other areas of personal development.
After the gathering, one of them told my wife that I know a lot of things.
I’ve simply channeled the discussion to an area that I know better.
