There’s a certain kind of “yes” you’re looking for

There are different kinds of “yes” you can get from people.
Sometimes “yes” means “Alright FINE!”. Sometimes “yes” means “OK, but if this backfires I’ll say I told you so”. Sometimes “yes” means “You kind’a understand what I’m saying but not 100%”. Sometimes “yes” means “YES!!! You understand me!” Or “YES! I’m really excited about this!”
It’s worth deciding beforehand what type of yes you’re going for. The latter ones take a lot more time and effort than the former ones.
