When you're too anxious (too anything), you can't learn. Good reminder, @karennjohnson #testbashThe reason I started to think about this is that I'm very uncomfortable learning intentional methods to play people. Collecting ideas is great, but I don't seem to work well with trying to learn a method, it just freezes me. I just thought that the thing I could take from the presentation I was listening to that it's ok if there's a piece that sticks with me. Even if I would need to learn to ask really good questions or be very precise on how I use my words, being methodological about it makes me uncomfortable.

I really hate it when I realise in the moment when someone uses a method on me and remember back to managers who apply things they've been trained to do. I wonder if I'm just being difficult.
