Need some advice? Tell a story … Don’t ask a question.

6617455967_18558272ab_bWe often need some advice or feedback on a certain subject but we don’t have access to the correct experts (or those who we think could help us). I have found that you can tell a story about the situation to almost anyone who is prepared to listen. They listen and what I know about human behaviour is they will often want to tell a similar story back to you and usually a story that has the exact answer that you are looking for.

People love stories, they love hearing them and they love telling them. Simple how we can use human behaviour to our advantage. Put it to the test and let me have your feedback.
