Social LPT: I learned as a father in the early years, admit to your children when you are wrong or did something wrong. They will definitely respect you for being honest and will be honest with you. (mostly) Mileage can vary! lol

Social LPT: Don't say "sorry IF I hurt you", say "sorry THAT I hurt you" when apologizing. Even if you didn't mean to hurt anyone, saying "if" diminishes their feelings.

LPT: When meeting someone with an abnormal trait, even if you mean well (i.e. saying "Wow, you're so tall"), don't draw attention to it in your first conversations. Most people just want to be seen for their character, not their physical traits.

Electronics LPT: Bounce batteries to see if they’re good or bad. Drop them on a table from about 6 inches. If they give one small bounce and fall right over, they’re good. If they bounce around anymore than that, they’re dead or on the way out.

Social LPT: Feel like you apologize too much? Instead of saying "I'm sorry" for something ("I'm sorry I was emotional"), re-frame to say "thank you" instead ("thank you for being there for me"). It takes the emphasis off of you and shows appreciation more directly.
