Tact is a social grace. It is the art of navigating the delicate or difficult situation. It is the ability to get a point across without undue upset to the listener.

It is a skill . . . perfect for the feminine woman.

Be clear on what tact is not.

It is not a lie – outright or by omission. It is not euphemism intended to cloud or dismiss an issue or mislead the unknowing. And it is not silence.

These, by default, are approvals. Be careful.

Accept less, get less.
