Yes!We should definitely try/use those tricks. But I have doubt over trick no. 1. What if  both parties (you can consider you and me!) are applying your tricks? Will there be any actual fruitful conversation?

Hi Tanveer, Thanks for reading:), Hmm it seems complicated at first that what will happen if both parties use same techniques. But I think it'd be great if both parties become interested towards each other, they'll listen more, be more open to each other and will be more authentic.

Concurrently, I prefer not to say these principles as "tricks". Tricks sound a bit artificial but in a conversation, if we want to get something out, we must be authentic.

What do you think? Two people want to have a fruitful conversation and become interested to each other, want to listen more from other person, would not their conversation be more fruitful instead of one where none or only one party shows real interest and authenticity?
