    These are really interesting and helpful facts, but for fact 2 and 5 I’d love to see some more examples. If you have something like a link where you can see the different effect on labelling for foods (aroma has at least 5 different types of labelling in Europe alone).

    Or for numer 5, how does someone construct a sentence that requires a more throughtful in depth response?
    This is something I’ve been wanting to learn for quite a few years now but never really found a good way to do so.

      I would highly recommend the book “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie for further reading, but the easiest way is to phrase it in such a way that a description is required. For example, “Do you like apples?” would be a yes or no question, whereas “what do you like about apples?” requires a description. To use a more in depth example, “How was your vacation?” vs “What were your favorite activities you did while on vacation” followed by “What made them your favorite.” Hope that helps
