What People Really Think Of You
Many people say that what other people think of you is their business, not yours.
But I disagree with that.
Here is why.
Though what other people think of you is their choice. The only way to create change within the relationship and, in turn, influence the other person is to know where they are starting from. And that starts with you understanding how they perceive you.
Once you understand the other parties’ biases, interpretations, and potential areas of misunderstanding, you know how to course correct the perception and consciously influence the relationship.
So yes, you should know what other people think of you.
