14. Assignment Description: Practice spotting the tone levels of people by engaging them in conversation. Take a clipboard and paper and interview people on the street. Ask them some sample questions such as “What’s the most obvious thing about me?” “When was the last time you had a haircut?” and “Do you think people do as much work now as they did fifty years ago?” Other questions of a similar nature can be used to gain responses from the person. Determine the person’s tone level based on his responses. Is there a social tone sitting atop his chronic tone? Repeat the interview with other people, noting the person’s tone level each time. Keep this up until you can approach anyone and engage him in conversation and determine his chronic tone level. (Important note: Do not tell the person what tone level you observe him to be in, or evaluate his tone level for him.)
