There are five important ways in which to interact with others, according to Ryan in WAIT, WHAT?
The idea of assessing to see if you have all the “facts you need to draw fair conclusions,” he writes on page 34, is more important than just thoughtlessly just reacting to what you see or hear. That’s the WAIT, WHAT? question.
No. 2: It is important to maintain your curiosity about the world and to always be inquisitive.
No. 3. The phrase, “Couldn’t he at least?” means to find common ground and come to a consensus with whom you are communicating with.
No. 4: How can I help? In what ways can you extend yourself to facilitate good communication?
No. 5: What truly matters?
The phrase, “Wait, what?” is at the heart of understanding and crucial to a fulfilling and rewarding life, Ryan writes.
