You don’t know what people are really like until they’re under a lot of stress.
– Tim Allen
I’m under stress. They killed me on wikipedia. They killed me. And I didn’t stay dead long enough to sell no DVDs. I didn’t even stay dead long enough – I was too stupid. I should’ve stayed low. I should’ve laid low. I could’ve been gone for a year; I’d have made money. And then I’d have risen from the dead.
In the early stages of negotiation software, on your smartphone, there may be programs that listen to the pitch of a voice, or that test for stress. You’ll just ask the program, ‘Was he lying? Was he eager to do business with me?’ Maybe the computer will be right sixty per cent of the time.
