What a nice guy!

Everyone was thrilled: “What a nice guy! And really knows about math! ” The big hit, you already guessed it: the nice guy had no idea about math. He was an art student. He didn't have the faintest glimmer of binomials.

He had a pronounced empathy for this: if the other person babbled on about Fermat's theorem, the test person did not respond to Fermat's theorem (a non-small-talker would try and embarrass himself). No, he rather responded to the feelings of the mathematician.

Real sympathy instead of pre-recorded knowledge

Empathy - and you can train it

But that's not the point. The point is: empathy enables the greatest possible recognition. Because every human being, even if he is a mathematician, is deeply emotional. Who perceive these feelings and spiegeln can is a small talk genius.
