Funny, I listen to so-called “conversations” around me at Gloria Jeans in Melbourne Central and I do not seem to be hearing any converse ideas, thoughts or concepts.
“Absolutely”…., “You’re exactly right…” etc, all in perfect agreement, so it seems. More like an “agreementation” than a conversation, me thinks.
George S. Patton said “If we are all thinking alike then someone isn’t thinking”.
If we really want to get the benefit from the Cafe Culture and conversation, unless we are going to take a risk and share our converse ideas and concepts then we are destined to be mediocre in our thinking.
