I didn't become a disc jockey so that I can sit in a bunch of boring meetings. On the rare occasion that I have to be part of one, I can usually just sit and watch everyone else participate. But once in a while I have to speak my mind.

So here are 10 ways I, and everyone else can APPEAR smarter in them.

1. Keep nodding while you pretend to take notes.

2. Ask, "Will This Scale?"

3. Request that the meeting presenter go back one slide

4. Draw a Venn Diagram

5. Say that everyone "Should take a step back".

6. Pace around the room.
