The Mind Changer

This exercise tests your powers of persuasion.

It’s distressingly easy to misinterpret a bit of text. Most people have done it: assumed a message was pointed, or mean, or even carefree, when actually it was nothing of the sort. That’s the focus of this test: can you tell what someone is really feeling from their choice of words? And, can you choose the right combination of words in response, to help shift their mood – and ultimately change their mind?
