“How To Negotiate Much Stronger With Police And Authority Figures”
People don’t realize they are always negotiating.
It occurred in the flap of a gnat’s wing. So quick was it; one might not have recognized the flaring mood shift occurring. At that moment, the posturing began. It had already started for the person with authority – the police officer in the process of stopping a driver. Meanwhile, the driver thought it’s time to negotiate.
What had occurred? A police officer set his red lights to flash. When the driver of the car recognized those lights, he immediately had a paradigm alteration. He assessed how he might negotiate during the stop. Knowing he was the authority figure, the police officer was also scripting how he might negotiate, based on his interactions with the driver.
So, how do you react to the police when they stop you? Especially when you know, they believe they are the power figure, the ones with authority. With the police and authority figures, the answer is, it depends.
Remember, you’re always negotiating!
