So, what is it? What is the ONE thing to do that can do both, make people LIKE you more, and make you look SMARTER at the same time? It is Asking-For-Advice. Yep. I learned about it via various podcast episode, but a quick search on google brought up these 2 links in case you want to read more about the rationale behind it as well as the cool name “Ben Franklin Effect”: https://www.businessinsider.com/ben-franklin-effect-2016-12 and https://hbr.org/ideacast/2016/06/asking-for-advice-makes-people-think-youre-smarter.html
