Robert Greene’s Law # 12 : “Use selective Honesty and generosity to disarm your victim”
One sincere and honest move will cover over dozens of dishonest ones. Open hearted gestures of honesty and generosity bring down the guard of even the most suspicious people. Once your selective honesty opens a hole in their armor, you can deceive and manipulate them at will.
In my own words… Law # 12 : ” Empty yourself each time you enter a room, not bringing your past into the present, having an objective of self newness. Doing so, when entering a room, you will know which people will help you and who to stay away from.
