  • Tact is when yoyu talior your words and actions so you won't afend other people. And no I have very little tact. I'm very straight forward and plain spoken. I'm also brutally honest so tacts lost on me.
  • I have a t-shirt that says, "Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic."

  • Tact = Consideration and compassion combined and personified. I really make an effort to be tactful, I am employed to deal with the general public, so I guess I'd say I'm professionally tactful. I hope that practice carries over into my private life as well.
  • I am working on it. I was brought up to be polite, which is an element of tact. So, if a person gave me a present I did not like, I would simply thank them and smile. If they were wearing something outrageous, I might be able to say nothing, knowing that they liked what they were wearing.

I finished the song...

  • It's the art of being sensitive to others, giving them the consideration as to not needlessly hurt or offend them. It's using your discernment of people to keep their feelings in mind when speaking. Am I? I try to be. I see no reason to just use every right I have to speak my mind ruthlessly without any thought to others. We all live on this planet together. It doesn't take anything away from me to phrase something so that it is not so blunt to hurt others.
