What’s involved in gaining the inside track?

How does one get on the inside track of someone else they know? To get the scoop. To be the buddy.

Does it involve give-and-take? I tell you something first and then you tell me? Or is it mostly the warmth, the charm, etc.? There are people who are instantly within the inner circle, but there are others who just don’t get through that sphere.

And the issue can get more complex if you involve not just person A to person B, but also person A, person B and person C. You see it all the time – friends, family, work, everywhere. Everyone trying to get into everyone else’s circles/spheres. Not all make it.

And when these persons interact on a regular basis, it could become critical for all to be in each other’s spheres or none to be. Or else…..
