Con-man commandments

1. Be a patient listener (it is this, not fast talking, that gets a con-man his coups).

 2. Never look bored.

3. Wait for the other person to reveal any political opinions, then agree with them.

 4. Let the other person reveal religious views, then have the same ones.

5. Hint at sex talk, but don’t follow it up unless the other fellow shows a strong interest.

6. Never discuss illness, unless some special concern is shown.

 7. Never pry into a person’s personal circumstances (they’ll tell you all eventually).

 8. Never boast. Just let your importance be quietly obvious.

 9. Never be untidy.

10. Never get drunk.

According to the students, “Lee Seung Gi looks smart and intelligent” and “Kim Tae Hee went to Seoul National University, she is smart for real.”
