Basically, I really get a kick out of amassing huge amounts of information.
So I thought I’d pose a question to you guys. Weigh in, if you would, with whatever you have to say about it. Tangents are welcome. I’m just trying to collect more information.
Need… more… data…
Given a choice, would you rather get a negative response (“no”) from someone else or no response at all (silence)? WHY?
I mean in cases where a response clearly isn’t positive. Some side considerations that occur to me:
- Does situation change your preference?
- When have you done the one you don’t like to others? How come?
- What kind of verbal or silent “no” is the worst? Best?
I’m fascinated by this because I think we all have a preference but we all do both. I’ll post my own thoughts on it sometime soon. In the meantime, I can’t wait to hear yours.
