Every conversation is a transaction. Master conversation and you can become rich.
We speak to each other because we ultimately desire something. Actually, each one of us has a value language.
There are 6 value languages, or reasons why you communicate verbally with others — information, utility, love or acceptance, currency, and other ones I forgot.
If you ask questions constantly without divulging anything about yourself, you’re holding back resources for the other party.
For an effective, mutually beneficial transaction to occur, you must be mindful of the resources/information you’re gaining and giving.
Aim for a win-win.
