It's all about survival!
People are brilliant in a lot of ways. Some of us are book smart or creatively smart and some of us are geniuses when it comes to the survival of life in general. When you say 'street smarts' its not about living in the streets, its about living life day to day and having to wheel and deal with people in all sorts of ways, from all walks of life. You have to be wise to detail, and the intentions of a stranger can buy you decades.
Redditor u/kaylenequelinda wanted everyone to share their most useful tactics on survival by asking.... What's your most useful "street-smart" piece of advice?
It puts the lotion in the basket....
Mind games. Life's survival is based on the best of the best of mind games. Sometimes you just gotta get someone to do what you need, like diffuse a dangerous situation. Is it always right or morally ethical? NO. But please, let he is without sin cast the first stone. A little trickery goes a long way... often for good.
Redditor u/PM_ME_UR_PUPPYDOGS wanted us all to fess to some shady yet clever mind games we've all played.... What is the most effective psychological "trick" you use?
