True Lies

You don't think the person will tell you what he really thinks.

Either he'll be too polite or he wants to hide his views or he's shy or he doesn't feel comfortable expressing his preferences.

But you want to know what he thinks anyway. What do you do?

You ask him what he thinks everyone else thinks.

Unless he's a really good liar, he'll be - not unlike most of us - projecting his own views on the larger community.
