Tuesday, November 23, 2010

When you want to educate your fellow non-Muslims about the terrifying brilliance of Islam, you will have the best chance of getting through if you gain strong rapport with the person first. One way to help you gain rapport is to notice which representational system they favor and present your information in those terms (visual, auditory, or kinesthetic).
