Strategy Twenty-Seven: Feign Folly Instead of Madness

Steamed Dumpling's Commentary:
Even the smallest office is engulfed in politics and petty personal squabbles. It's a battlefield. On your first day at a new job, breathe through your mouth and smile a lot.

Idiots are useful because they can be trusted and manipulated. One can reveal one's intentions to them, and relax when they're around. Playing the fool is the best way to get information.

The coffee club needs a new president. Strike! When you make your move, pretend you have no idea what you're doing. Bring order out of chaos.
