As we’ve mentioned several times before, ideas for our weekly post come from many different sources. This week we have both clients, friends and family to thank; who all raised the same subject in quick succession. And have also shown us what a can of worms this subject can be. 
So what are we talking about? Intelligence. What makes a person intelligent. 
And that, as they say, is where the fun really starts (!). 
While many learned people have grappled with this question over the centuries, the thing that immediately becomes apparent is that there’s no simple answer to this question. Or, dare we suggest it, an objective one either. 
Having read the title of this post – and looked at the picture – you’re probably expecting a police related theme to this week’s story. And in one sense you’d be right, although we have to admit that the link is slightly tenuous. 
So what are we going to be talking about this week? 
Not a very exciting topic you may think but, bear with us, it’s a problem we’re seeing increasingly regularly with clients. And one that can be easily prevented in the first place. 
As regular readers of this blog will have realised by now we find people endlessly fascinating. Not only what they say – or don’t say (!). How they say it. Their body language. And lots more besides. 
What particularly intrigues us is how little thought many people seem to give to what they’re saying. To the words they’re using and whether they really mean what they think – or assume (!) – they do. And, crucially, whether they realise how easy it is for one single word to undermine their best efforts. 
It sounds like something from a Victorian guide to etiquette for young ladies (!) but, we thought, made a great title for this week’s blog post. 
Sweating is one of those subjects rarely mentioned in polite company. More often than not it’s seen as one of those annoying body functions we have little control over. Particularly in a stressful – or social – setting. But, as always, there’s so much more to it than that. 
This is a sentiment we regularly hear from clients and you probably hear it – or think it – too from time to time. Whether about yourself or someone else. 
Whatever the grief or loss, there seems to be an assumption that they should get over it in a short period of time. A few weeks or months. And then get on with life without making any fuss. 
Some say this is a British affliction – stiff upper lip and all that – but it seems to run through many other countries and cultures. 
The real question is whether this approach helps the person concerned?
