Many people have wished or dreamed about the possibility of doing espionage, and movies surely stimulate such desire. But my experience of living in some of the worst neighborhoods in the world left me with little desire to ever be in such situation again.

However, there are many forms of espionage in our modern world, and not just the types that we often see in movies. Among those, we have the ones we’re forced to learn, in order to find evidences against a cheating partner, or to protect ourselves when someone is investigating our private life.

 The only advantage that the most vicious people have consists in being fake. Once they start to speak, you can see pretty much about their intentions, their goals in life, and even who they really are behind their appearance.

The ones that spy on us are always the friendliest. Their strategy works because most people are too dumb, focused in smiles and compliments, and in need for emotional support. If you listen to the questions, then you can see the person behind the mask. The spy, whatever his age may be, is always asking private questions and trying to close the gap to your privacy, not only through conversations but also habits. […]
