Wit; Developing it...
« on: March 26, 2006, 10:40:34 PM »
How does one learn to think on their feet?  To think FAST.... and to develop witty remarks when on a date, for example.

Or to think quickly on your feet in case a case does not go your way?

And charm and charisma... how?  We all have the potential, but how do we unleash these characteristics?

Ride the Snake

Have sex you mean?


Nah, it was a reference to an SNL skit with Jim Carrey.  I don't know why it popped into my head.


But it's the kind of randomness that you can pass off as wit if you find an exceptionally gullible woman  ;)

Well, what I am guessing is that theme is concentration. For example, you can have a low LSAT, but if you put your sweat, blood and tears into LS, you could one day by in big law too. The issue is, if you are not the efficent learner, do you have the commitment. We all have the capability, its just for some it comes with little effort and some it takes months, if not several years of brutal training which the majority of those who fall short of the glory of initial coolness fall short of in dedication.
