In this Stoic training exercise, we take a look at some of the methods the ancient Stoics used to handle insults and verbal sleights.
Then we immediately put them to use in an audio simulation training, where I insult you and you practice interpreting them with the right frames.
At first, this process may seem a bit strange or uncomfortable, or humourous, but this is how we learn. We must practice using skills in low-stress situations if we ever hope to have them at our disposal in high-stress situations, i.e. when someone insults us in the world.
