Andy: I've changed my mind, I think it's great that you've quit your job. Roger: You do? Andy: Absolutely. I think it's wonderful that you want to spend more time with your family even though it means letting 25 years of experience and hard work in the corporate world go to waste for who knows how long while we eat up our savings. I'm behind you 100 percent. Roger: Thanks, sweetie. Now I know it was the right decision. Andy: Boy, when reverse psychology backfires, it really backfires. Roger: Hey, son- teach me how to play those video games of yours.
Roger is too used to your being honest and upfront, which is your nature. Reverse psychology, in your case, only means you’re outsmarting yourself.
