AS WOMAN to
SYMPATHY is a virtue. Every)
one knows that and to state it is a
truism, but did it ever occur to you
that sympathy? is much more than that,
that it is in fad an invaluable success,
asset in a great many relations of life?
Sympathy is the fine art of putting
one's self in another one's place, and he
who possesses that ability has a k c V to
unlocfy innumerable doors.
A highly succssful business woman,
who is a buyer in a large department
store, was asked what quality in herself
she considered had had the most to do with her success. She thought a few
moments and then said, "My ability to put myself in the other fellow's place.
It's been a habit of mine ever since I was a child to try to do that, and has
lielped me more than 1 can say. When I was behind the counter I always
tried to put myself in the customer's place and see what would get at me best
if 1 Were a customer. When I was made a forelcdy I had to put myself in
the shop girl's place. Of course, that wasn't so hard because I had just been
there myself. When I began to do the buying I had to put myself in several
people's places; the merchants I bought from, the firm I was working for, and,
of course, the customer for whom I was ultimately buying. You've just got
to fecp doing that all the time if you want to succeed. The moment you begin
to think too much of your own point of view, and forget to put yourself in
the other fellow's place, you are lost."
You may be interested to £non> that this is the testimony of one of the
highest salaried Women in this country.
Of course, the ability to put himself in the other fellow's place is the
first stock ' n trade of the story writer. Without it he writes from the outside
and is sure to be conventional and artificial.
7 he advertising man s aim is to put himself in the reader s place and find
out what there is about the advertised article that will appeal to him most
strongly and therefore ought to be played up.
Once in a while you gel a thoroughly interesting letter. Sometimes these
letters come from clever people, sometimes they arc from everyday folks who
do not lay claim to any unusual amount of brains, but in either case I think Y ou
will find that the writer possessed the ability to put himself in your place and
write the particular news and play upon the particular £md of incident that
would interest you.
We all desire to possess tact, hew what, after all, is tact but the ability
to so identify yourself with the person you are with that you will not say or
do anything to wound or grate or offend.
These arc a few of the relations of life in which the ability to put one's
self in another's place is a valuable asset. I have no space to write more, but
you can find them for yourself.
Have you this valuable ability? Can you put yourself in his place?
