A lot of scientific principles are intuitive.
Not that we know the equations and underlying theory, but as operational humans, we “get” how things work.
Like throwing a baseball, for example.
Physics tells us that the optimum angle is 45 degrees if we want to get the maximum distance.
But kids know this intuitively, by trial and error.
Another one is the idea of resonance.
All systems have a certain “frequency” about which they normally vibrate.
And if you “behave” in this same “frequency” you’ll get the most bang for your buck.
Like little kids on swings. They learn quickly to swing their legs at the same frequency as the swing, and they get some pretty high amplitudes.
Sometimes this is not appropriately understood, with horrible results.
A group of solders were marching across a bridge, in cadence, and their marching cadence was the same frequency as the bridge. And it collapsed.
When you’re having a conversation with somebody, getting “in tune” with them feels fantastic. Like you are on the same page, or even the same “wavelength.”
Most people think that this happens randomly. Haphazardly. Talk to enough people, and a small enough percentage will have that “in synch” feeling.
Of course, if you approach others with this mindset, it WILL be a numbers game.
Meaning if you go up and blurt out a bunch of stuff, and hope it “works.”
But if you do the opposite, you’ll have a much HIGHER chance of creating that feeling of resonance.
Instead of blurting out a bunch of stuff, you ask them some questions. Easy to answer questions. Simple questions. Then slowly expand.
Once you get enough information, about what makes them tick, then the “stuff” that you “blurt out” will be much more “in tune” with them.
And you’ll be able to create that feeling of resonance with almost anybody.
What would you be able to do then?
