    If you ask someone a question and they only partially answer just wait. If you stay silent and keep eye contact they will usually continue talking.

      I really like this. Silence makes people uncomfortable. Use it to your advantage.

      This is useful everywhere too. I used to work as a debt collector (yeah, I hate me for it too) and it was one of the first tactics they taught us. Now I'm in a medical career...and same thing.
