Hector,

Love the piece. The curiosity section made me think. When you know the direction someone may be about to take conversation in because you've experienced similar conversations before, or you think you have a clue on what the person is motivated by, what's a way to make them think about their motivations in conversation without being so blatantly obvious in your attempt? I think Socratic Questioning is a valuable skill and when combined with genuine curiosity it can produce great results and/or transition well into a deep dive, but I feel like when I try to use it I come off as prying or perhaps too directly personalizing the question. If you could think of an example or any feedback and the idea I'd really appreciate it.
