Do you want to discover your inner child, the true you?
The Two Best Truth Serums
“All'.s fair in love and war.”
I am a world traveler, and travel is a truth serum, people often live a different life abroad, than at home. They can be honest with a complete stranger they will never see again -- they can be extremely dishonest.
The 2 Best Truth Serums
“What they say is the lie, what they do is the truth.”
1. Alcohol - A drug that shut off the brains editing powers.
2. Travel - No consequence with friends, you will never see them again, it is amazing how this allows them to show their inner selves.
I often hear friends say,
“Alcohol is a truth serum.”
How people act when they are drunk is who they really are, but the same for traveler, or tourists, especially the solo, independent traveler.
A truth serum is used to obtain information from subjects who are unable or unwilling to provide it otherwise. Many divorces and failed business partnerships could be avoided.
Life is a never-ending series of small and large partnership agreements. I am going to talk to someone today, and I will say,
“Do you want to meet for dinner tonight?”
I must believe the partner will arrive for dinner, and isn't it amazing the number of excuses we hear each day on why they need to cancel. I personally want people to tell me the truth, and stop wasting my time.
Wouldn't it be nice to give a truth serum to your lover, fiance, wife or husband? I would love to give one to new friends, test them, someone learn if they were capable of being a good friend.
Yet,I believe for many, the fear is,
“They would use the truth serum on me.”
After 15 years of perpetual travel, and 90 countries, there is one thing I am quite sure of,
“I am a good guy.”
The best use of truth serum is on yourself, and solo or independent travel is a great way to reveal your inner thoughts. Travel gives a person wild temptations, with no consequences.
If you want to give yourself a truth serum, travel alone to another country, the person you become is the real you.
I am always watching, and how you treat the waitress is often the story of your life.
