Success

Confidences - of sorts

You give a rousing speech about the economics of social equality. He nods politely. Later, he unbends enough to make some wry observations about others present. His wit is as sharp - and as painful - as an oiled knife.


Failure

Step carefully

You talk of economics and the tyranny of the neddy men, the Master's enforcers. He listens politely, but his eyes are far away. The minute you pause, he bows and turns to talk to someone else. Everyone can see you blush.
