That is a good personal stance to take, BestPest.

However, how do you reconcile that type of thinking with DannyDoyle's post above it? Things that make you go hmmmm....

It is amazing what a simple method can have on a spectator. I work in a hospital and often do a little something for those around me. One particular nurse was amazed by a magic trick which I wound up repeating numerous times over a 10 year period. This was driving her nuts. She attempted to duplicate it many times and failed. Finally after multiple "performances" she realized the method. "It was so simple". Over the years I have done other things but nothing impacted her like this one trick. By the way she has never told anyone the hard won secret.

Yeah it is a "hhhhmmmmm" thing. I find though, before I did little packet tricks for myself, I found it quite easy to blab my big fat mouth off when I knew a secret. If you feel a bit more in an exclusive club you become precious about the secrets. If you show an interest in it, and you learn something that isn't just a self working trick you are more inclined to keep it a secret. I for one don't want my friends to know that the awesome thing I just showed them is the most simple readily available trick.

Unless you you've taken some time to learn something hard, I don't think you are definately going to keep it to yourself.

Salsa dancer got me interested in magic, and he taught me pretty much most of the things I can do. We even have a code, and I wouldn't dream of telling anyone what it is.. for one, It's his and not my place to talk about it.

And I bet she's told someone how to do it. Even if it was on their death bed.
