Ready-to-use fast-paced techniques

Sometimes someone in our presence drops a “remark,” a comment that we cannot ignore, that is intended to provoke us, or we are attacked unqualified. Actually, we think in silence, the whole thing is too stupid for us.

We would not like to say anything. But this is often not a good idea (sometimes already), because this leaves us to the other, the pirate, without a fight: We are unsure.

Theater of the absurd

In such situations, the “absurd theater” promises to be an effective remedy. In the first place, they don't get involved in an argument, but surprise the other with an absurd reaction. He has to react to this somehow, which usually overwhelms him, because he expects you to take his attack seriously or explode with anger. But you are doing something completely different.

With this, you have broken off the provocation, and embarrassed the provocateur herself without engaging in an argument and without offending him.

Simply astounding

The principle is easy to grasp. You can use this technique right away, and it's fun, at least if you have a certain one Sense for absurd comedy. Then you might get the taste of using this technique more often - which in turn is a certain danger, because the surprise effect wears off a little over time.

But just a little. Because there are infinite varieties of “absurd theater”. And someone you have sidelined with this rather gentle technique won't necessarily try to provoke you a second or third time. And if you do, then go ahead with your “absurd theater”. There is no risk of being countered.

Stage free for the absurd theater

Perhaps you know the plays by Eugène Ionesco or other representatives of the “absurd theater”. The people in these pieces have extremely strange dialogues. They express things that are unrelated to what has been said, use inappropriate polite phrases and constantly break the expectations of the audience in everything they do.

The same is true. They say something that has nothing to do with what you have said. You remain completely serious. You can talk about complete nonsense, but in the way you say it, you behave as if you were going to be normal.

The different types of the absurd theater

There are different types of “absurd theater”. We present you two tried and tested variants.

The inappropriate proverb

On the surface, you behave like the “instant sentence”. You answer the attack with a sentence, a saying.

However, this is not related to the provocation and may well be nonsensical. "The pitcher goes to the well until it breaks." - "Many dogs are the rabbit's death." - “If you don't row, you fall on the ice.” Or similar deeply digging insights.

“Scientifically proven: women cannot park properly”

Bernd recently started working in a department that also employs a lot of women - obviously a problem for Bernd. Because he has made a sport of provoking his colleagues with comments that he calls "politically incorrect". One morning he remarks to his colleague Carola: "I read in the newspaper yesterday, it has now been scientifically proven that women cannot park properly." Carola replies with a smile: “What's the name of it, Bernd? Envy breeds swans from rotten duck eggs. ”

Unsuitable always fits

Proverbs that fit anywhere and nowhere (such as the Russian saying with the lazy duck eggs) are best suited. Because the biggest effect comes when your counterpart first frowns to think about what you just told him. It gradually dawns on him that you've picked him up.

Other suitable specimens

  • “The barber learns to shave on the fool's beard.” (Spanish)
  • The hurried bitch throws blind boy. ” (Lithuanian)
  • "When a chicken egg hit a man's head, there was a stone in it." (African)
  • "There is no needle that is pointed at both ends." (Chinese)

corruptions

You can also use bullhorns. For example: "Anyone digging a pit is a construction worker." Or you can think of something yourself. The only requirement: it must not fit.

If your counterpart then asks astonished: "What does that have to do with it?", Look him deeply in the eyes and say mysteriously: "Think hard." Or you just say what it's like, "Nothing."
