Brilliant Disguise

Tell us about a time when someone had you completely fooled, where the wool was pulled right over your eyes and you got hoodwinked, but good. Was it a humorous experience or one you’d rather forget? What was the outcome?

That happens many times, and that someone has always been myself. The experience was not always humourous though, but a learning one for most of the times. The outcome is what I am today so far.

One of my favourite quotes from The Newsroom:

“The greater fool is actually an economic term. It’s a patsy. For the rest of us to profit, we need a greater fool —  someone who will buy long and sell short.
Most people spend their life trying not to be the greater fool; we toss him the hot potato, we dive for his seat when the music stops.
The greater fool is someone with the perfect blend of self-delusion and ego to think that he can succeed where others have failed.
This whole country was made by greater fools.

Always try to be a greater fool.
