Strategy Lecture 1. Beijing, China. Sunday, 11th March. At Shuangjing Station on Line 10. Cost is free, though a small donation to charity would be appreciated. The talk will be at 4PM, if you don't know the Shuangjing area well you can meet near Shuangjing Station at 3:30PM and I'll have someone swing by to get you. Come, enjoy, and invite your friends.
So, when someone is lying, how do you know it?
If a captain says to one of his infantry, "We're all going to get out of here alive" -- and then one of his men dies, was he telling the truth?
I actually studied what truth is, and broke it down into two component parts that can be ranked from 1-100. In my book, anything below 60/100 on either component is dishonest.
We'll also cover some ways to pick up when someone is saying something that might be untrue, how to notice when someone is trying to "convince themself" of something they don't really believe (which is a sign they'll likely change their mind later), and some other tactical points.
It should be a hell of a time. I look forward to seeing you there.
