Synergistic Insights

Aside from the obvious (i.e. human interaction), what is it about a good conversation that delivers such a lift?

One way I get that lift is if a fresh insight surfaces. In my experience, the richest insights don't necessarily spring from a single person. Instead, in conversations with a lot of give-and-take, I've observed a synergy occurring where several viewpoints contribute to create the insight. And though one person may articulate or summarize what has emerged, the credit is meant to be shared by all who unselfishly participated.

Because of my extroverted personality and significant ego, traits that can lead to dominating conversations and claiming insights as "mine", I must remain mindful to help ensure these synergies have room to flourish. I found myself reflecting on this while at a meeting today. When I heard the insight that later emerged from real dialogue (an insight not articulated by me), I got so juiced. How about you? When in conversations, what can you do more of, less of, or differently to help create synergistic insights?

    Must is dust
    Syner is gist
    Save three for
    It's alright to
    Think once never
    Don't think twice
    It's alright frill
    In their presence
    Fog roll essence
    Frugal princess
    Whom you kissed
    Insight deep
    You can't resist
    Look in eyes
    Of horny toad
    Don't hold back
    Unleash your load
    Before you're dead
    'Ere all's been said
    Share the ego
    Before you go
    You go egg
    Ready set go
    Bare the id
    You're still a kid
    Super ego
    Don't know squat
    Of all the things
    Id wants a lot
    Spare them words
    Save them turds
    In a jar
    Of whey and curds
    Sail to sea
    Bend a knee
    Something great
    Ahead does weight
    Skip in time
    Say a rhyme
    Don't give up
    What's on the line
    Dotted this
    Polka that
    What's ahead
    Without a hat
    Eat knishes
    Sour fishes
    Cheese and cake
    Add some wait
    Belt won't fit
    Sag man's tit
    Ask why not
    Old shirt don't fit
    Say a prayer
    Honey bare
    Sit in poly
    Phonic chair
    Person Al
    It tea makes
    For some insight
    None can fake
    Ban the beach
    Man the sail
    Pray no have to
    Blow in jail
    Wear your stripes
    Avoid big fights
    Hug your ball and
    Chain goodnight
    Insight waxes
    Insight wanes
    Deep in sight
    Arctic you late
    So blow no
    Smoke in ass
    Save it for the
    Looking glass
    Full of fire
    White wine liar
    Hold the cup
    To lips no drink
    Throws the drought
    Down whole in sync
    Detergent scrub
    Vanity favors
    Love labors
    Knows not cost
    Feels no loss
    Erudition
    Contrition
    Exhibition
    Significance reject!
    Significance warning!
    In the son
    New thoughts forming
    Ride the bed
    Sweep the head
