We come across people of various natures, but the most dangerous one is the flatterer. They act as a parasite; slowly and steadily bringing you down by sucking up the reality quotient and filling your mind with words that you want to listen to. These people around you will praise every decision you make, they tell you how smart you are, how wise you are, how brave you are, how funny you sound, what a nice suit you’re wearing today. These are the flatterers, the sycophants, the smooth talkers. They deceive you with lush words that make you feel good. And for the most part, it works. Who doesn’t want to bask in the adoration of others?
