The presentation podcast was what I've come to expect from MT.
The thing that changed my perspective:
Dissonance... is... a... powerful... tool... to... gain... a... listeners... attention.
It's clear in the podcast.
When you slow down I listen up.
Visual and auditory dissonance is a tool I've seen only one person use regularly.
And by regularly I mean any time he spoke to me about my work.
There I was, listening more closely than I'd ever listened.
I didn't even realize at the time how effectively he was communicating.
I was mentally going over each sentence, phrase, word he said in my head 30 times before he would finish.
In this way he forced me to listen closely and carefully consider my reply.
This is not my natural tendency.
Wow, I thought he had a speech impediment.
I guess I was the one with the impediment.
