A friend once told me that he thought my favorite color was plaid. What he was referring to was his inability to get a specific opinion from me, a skill I learned working in sales.
Early on I mastered the non-committal answer. When you don’t know where a person stands on an issue, you need to be very careful that you do not express a diametrically opposed position. If asked a direct question, an easy dodge is, “What do you think?”
