Day 12, there was a lot of great info on this day. My aha moment was listening to verbal cues when it came to speed reading people focusing on their words, stories and pace. I think when I had originally listened to people speak I had not connected their words to being either introverted or extroverted, although I think I did pick up their neurotic characteristics easily prior to taking this course. I also liked the steps involved of How To Speed Read People(the Analytical side of my personality) as well as the breakdown and examples of the Fixed Point Theory.
The Platinum rule would definitely add some depth to the relationship with others. By allowing others to be treated the way they would treat themselves you would account for their feelings.
I would like to know would this be an example of the Platinum Rule?
If a person is feeling depressed, if for example Person A is the person who is trying to speak and Person B is the one depressed.
If Person A knows that he finds meditation soothing because it helps him clear his mind
but Person B, likes to be active, saying something like "I find it helpful to find a quiet place and reflect, it would be disrespectful to Person B. If Person A knew Person B was active possible alternatives could be, "You could go for a run for 10 minutes" or "Walk around the neighborhood" would take into consideration the activity level of Person B.
I'm not sure if this would be implementing the Platinum Rule or not but it was the one that crossed my mind.
