Four Ways To Answer A Question

There are four ways to answer any question. Politicians are very good at using these maneuvers.
1, answer the question (just give the answer);
2, answer a different question (the one you want to answer);
3, answer with a question (the one who ask questions is in charge of the conversation)
4, don't answer the question (you have the right to remain silent or say "no comment")
Make sure you are comfortable with these as they are powerful communication tools to use when the situation calls for it.
