Welcome back to Applied Curiosity Lab Radio. In this episode of ACLR we chomp on the Curiosity Bite exploring silence. Does your silence communicate effectively? When does it communicate ineffectively?

How comfortable are you with silence? Do you use silence to agree? To disagree? As a power play?

Is your own silence a strategy or indicative of a lack of strategy? Is this the same for others?

Discuss, debate, and dissect with us!

The lens is – and always will be – curiosity. Each week, fun informal conversations center around one delectable Curiosity Bite designed to give your brain the time and ideas to think about thinking, to flex your curiosity muscle… and maybe even… revolutionize the way you think.

This week’s Curiosity Bite:


When is silence agreement or disagreement or when is it just powerful? 

“When in negotiation it’s best to breathe through your nose.”

In this episode…Curious Questions asked and answered

Do you use silence or is it a default?

Does silence cover non-verbal communication?

What are the ramifications of silence in contract law?

When does silence mean consent?

Do you interpret silence correctly?

How often do you play with thought experiments?


Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!
