In Italy, there is an old saying that says “it’s easier to tease them than to make them understand”. This simply means that when communication between two people is not taking place at the same level, the less skilled usually find themselves letting others do the thinking. And you know better than me that anyone will think better for themselves than for you.
As I have explained in my book “the way of the voice”, the speed at which our brain operates is not that fast. Is actually really slow. It takes time to make all those connections ties and do the “thinking”, but it takes also a lot of energy. If our brain is fed with an “idea” that seems fair enough, it skips all the work and “believes” in other people thinking. During every conversation, the one with more “voice” skills, has more time to think and to turn the “slower” part as they prefer.
