The perfect assistant. The builder of esteem. The positive influence.
While you think he’s just being agreeable, he has nefarious purposes known only to him. Never trust The Yes Man.
The Yes Man says, “Go ahead. Do it. It’s the right thing to do. You’re on the right track,” and then he kicks you in the nuts and steals your lunch. He smiles while telling you lies that you can’t detect until it’s too late. He’s always encouraging you to jump.
The Yes Man is not a team player, regardless of what he says. By all accounts, he gets along with the group, yet he’s always looking out for Number One. Unfortunately, you’re Number Two – at most.
So who is The Yes Man? He’s the voice in the back of your head who won’t shut up. He yammers constantly, sings songs you can’t stand. He keeps you awake at night, then tells you to relax, it’s nothing. Then he tells you that it’s time to wake up and go back to sleep.
You are The Yes Man, and no, you’re not sorry.
