My son asked me if I thought most people are dickheads. I sort of knew what he meant and reframed it somewhat as people either consciously or unconsciously or both, choosing and accepting their lot in life even-though they might hate their jobs because they’ve got kids, a mortgage and other bills to pay.
Knowing that means we can utilise our skills to help and influence them so that they get what they didn’t know they wanted.
Have you ever noticed a new puppy being walked on a lead outside for the first time. The puppy is full of energy and curious about everything and attempts to run and play and is immediately restrained by the leash around its neck. It repeats this enough times until it is “Trained”. It is subdued.
