Technique 33 – React with humor by changing your point of view.
Another way to use humor is with a negative sentence. Everyone likes a challenge.
Here are some examples.:
- “You wouldn’t be able to put all your papers away, would you?”
- “You couldn’t read this whole book, could you?”
- “You couldn’t be in line with your whole desk clean by 1:30 pm, could you?”
You can probably already hear loudly and clearly all these“ Oh yes I can(s).”
Anytime you can take the pressure off or switch a situation from serious to humorous, you will find yourself way ahead of the game. Enjoy this new technique. Not only is it fun, it works!
