      Brilliant as always .These questions are so useful in a number of topics and instances. …I’ve even seen some of them used to create rapport in job interviews.

      Great questions. Always a challenge when you have those guests that don’t fill air time or get off track, so these strategies make a lot of sense.

      Love it. I always ask “why”, but will definitely incorporate the other four now. Thanks Pat!

        @Pat Flynn Bwawawawawa!!! I can see “why” you would think that.

      I’m finally diving into to Pat’s book SUPERFAN’S today. It’s been great. Popped over the watch this video, commented and then he responded to me…which is what Pat preaches in the book’s chapter “Return Every Handshake”. I’m always thankful for Pat’s kindness, and was very impressed that Pat continues to practice what he preaches. Thanks again Pat. You inspire us all.

      Thank you for these tips! I love all of the questions and especially the variety on asking how they felt (feeling/emotional), what went through their mind (thinking/logical), and what they felt in their gut (feeling/physical). Hits the different thinking styles!
