ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the "May to be Take a Blockhead to Lunch Month," an activity, which has been designed by the author of the article. As per this activity, one has to contact a person with whom one's opinions differ sharply on any issue. One has to call that person and invite him or her at the lunch together, or breakfast, or dinner. After ordering and settling in, one has to ask his or her dining partner plainly and respectfully what he or she thinks or feels about issues that seem to divide him with the person himself. While, performing this activity, one has to keep in mind that he has to ask real questions, and not simply spout off opinions with question marks stuck onto the end. Also, throughout the course of the conversation, one should aim to listen at least four times more than he talks. One should use his talking time to ask more questions. By performing this activity, the author hopes that one would realize a change in himself or herself.
