I invite my readers to take a look at my latest ezine article called The Social Percher.
This is the beginning a taster if you will of an experience I encountered recently.
Allow me to present a recent scenario I encountered at a gathering of highly intellectual and friendly people whilst attending an after dinner party. I tend to be an observer of peoples body language as well as listening intently to what others have to say, and speak when spoken to and not interrupt an on-going conversation until the right moment presents itself.
What I discovered lately is that some of the most out spoken, confident and self-assured people are as apprehensive and uneasy as the most insecure person in the room, and they find it hard to handle the quiet and at times timid person without being rude to someone who they feel they are superior to. Well I can tell you that appearances can be deceptive.
There is probably no intellectual difference between the most confident person in the room and the most insecure, in fact the old adage of the “beware the quiet ones” can be a lesson to all concerned.
Here is the link, enjoy.
