96 STASHED IDEAS

This ending is when the hero does not get what they want, and also not what they need. This ending can seem poignant and unfair to the audience.

Example: The movie The Godfather does not end in the way the father, or the son intended to, and neither how the audience envisioned. It ends in a tragic, bitter way, out of nowhere.

The conversational rules for a successful invitation depend on:

  • who we're asking,
  • what kind of relationship we have
  • what's at stake
  • how important an acceptance is.

The preferred response to a request is acceptance, and the best way to ensure a positive result is to pose a leading question like, "What are you up to this evening?" This helps those we're talking to avoid having to give negative responses.

Friends' scriptwriters breached these rules, which cause audiences to laugh.

The anxiety you feel before you say something in a meeting can cause you to back out altogether.

Therefore, try not to overthink it. When the point you want to discuss comes up on the agenda, immediately commit to contributing.

Benefits of Letter Writing
  • You already know who you want to address your writing to. This helps release unexplored emotions towards this person and dig deeper into your inner self.
  • You cannot be interrupted. You focus on what you want to say without the fear of judgment, any kind of disturbance, and you're conscious of what you're writing down.
  • It may help you heal unresolved feelings and conflicts with your addressee. Your audience will be able to feel the intimacy you want to present.

In a 1986 paper, research showed that teachers gave students typically 1 second or less to reply to a question, while the threshold for positive effects turns out to be 2.7 seconds.

  • Giving students more time to respond changed students' attitudes and behavior, and increased the number of questions and unprompted contributions by students.
  • Deliberately increasing wait times also contributes positively to the teacher's attitudes and behavior by forming more cohesive and constructive development of ideas, probing for clarification of elaboration, and encouraging fair expectations across a group of students.
