Seth Godin says you might work to be heard, as a way of getting on.
That reminds me of Plato's statement:
"Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something."
But there are times where being heard is important, an I certainly play the game. I suppose it's just just a matter of having something to say when you're speaking.
One of the wisest people I know responded to my "you're quiet" with the understated "I don't have anything to say".
