The third area of night-time activity is in the field of theater type entertainment. There is a historical opera house still giving excellent performances, Theaters’ offering traditional plays and many venues where classical music is offered are literally all over Naples.
The purpose of this article is to advise you how to have a wonderful unforgettable day during your stay in Naples. You will find that Naples is the gateway to many historical sites well worth visiting, such as the ruins of Pompeii and the volcano at Mount Vesuvius.
It is the opinion of our office staff that the most memorable place to visit associated with Naples is the Island of Capri. It is beautiful, romantic, Italian in every way and fun to be there. It is a full day trip. You start out by being picked up at a hotel in the center of the City and taken to the port. From there you board a hydro foil for a quick trip to Capri.
From the Capri Port you are taken to various towns where you get to walk the narrow boutique lined streets and mix with the locals. There will be time for lunch at a good restaurant. You can shop, sit in the shade, drink wine and even pretend your Italian. This will be a part of Italy that you will never forget. You can make time for the somber churches and Roman ruins another day.
Knowing when somebody is lying to you has become almost a science. Many law enforcement agencies from the FBI down to local police departments offer training in this subject. Observation and common sense play a large part.
Typical of using common sense; might be a situation where police are questioning a suspect about a crime. The suspect starts to yawn, stretch their arms and legs, and trying to get comfortable. They might even try removing imaginary pieces of lint from their clothing. In other words they are trying to show by body language that they are calm and relaxed because they are innocent. The truth is, if they were innocent they would not be relaxed, but angry and indignant at being wrongly accused.
Here is a way to tell if a person is doing something wrong. As example we will use a girl who thinks her fiancé is running around with other women. She should not ask him directly because he would simply deny it and nothing would be accomplished. The better approach would be for her to say, ” I saw my girl friend’s fiancé out with another woman. What should I say to her? ”
If the girl’s fiancé responds by trying to get rid of the question as quickly as possible by saying things like, “You should mind your own business. Let’s go out to a movie.” or” I hate talking about things like that ” or “Forget it.” the probabilities are he is running around and feels uncomfortable talking about it. On the other hand if he is willing to talk about it, discussing the best way to tell the girl about her fiancé as example . This indicates that he is not running around because he is comfortable talking about the subject.
It has been known for centuries that a person can become popular and in demand if they are a good listener. This is true because most people love to talk about themselves and good listeners are hard to find. The better listener you are the more popular you will be. Good listening is not just standing there with your mouth shut and ears open. Really good listening requires some activity on the part of the listener.
The idea of using some type of response is to show the person who is talking that not only do you hear what is being said but that you are emotionally involved by their dialogue. The response may be: the nod of your head, raising of he eye brows, a smile or a frown, leaning towards them, utterance of a word or what ever is appropriate at the time.
Another way to become an in demand listener is to respond to the emotional content of what is being said. So while listening to their story you might say, “I’m sure you felt angry.” Of course other terms such as frustrated, sad, happy, etc. might better apply. The idea is to describe their mental state at the time of the incident they are telling you about.
We have been describing “active listening .” It is important because it shows the other person we are interested in what they have to say and people find this very flattering.
The trick to avoid arguments is primarily useful for husbands and wives but there are many other situations where it can be very helpful.
When people live together there is bound to be a certain amount of friction that occurs. It is to be expected. Each person has their own good and bad habits. Let’s imagine a household where the husband has the habit of leaving his clothes lying around on the floor and the wife is upset with having to constantly pick them up.
One Sunday evening when the wife picks up a dirty sweat shirt to throw into the hamper she verbally attacks her husband. ” Were you raised in a barn leaving your clothes all over the floor? You turned out to be one big slob. ” At this point the husband having been attacked responds with his own attack criticizing her cooking and anything else he could think of.
What the wife should have said was, “When you leave you clothes on the floor and I have to pick them up it makes me feel like a maid instead of your wife.” She is still discussing the problem of clothes on the floor but there is no personal attack, so the husband does not attack her. This opens up the probability for a reasonable discussion about the clothes.
The idea in back of this trick is to express how the other persons bad conduct hurt your feelings instead of criticizing them for what they have done. This leads to discussion rather than confrontation.
