The Beautiful Art of Small Talk

Showing genuine interest in the other person by asking questions and listening is key. Be interested rather than positioning yourself to be interesting.

Some people are to be discovered. They prefer you come into their space and then they take it from there. Most of these people are seen as introvert but they are like a pressured hose awaiting a opening. These people have their great point but at times they are seen as snubs. From what I see, they are not. They only connect with those who can “find” them. Though they do not understand the dynamics, they feel people do not have their time. So it is funny. Others think they are snubs and they think people do not have their time.

Seek To Understand Instead Of Being Understood.

Most times, people go into a conversation with an agenda. It is one of those things that is a “no=no”. My reason is simple, when you genuinely care about people, you talk to them freely. It is not “how are you?”, followed by the awkward silence that lingers. It is sincerely asking “how are you” with some oomph and an eye of care and interest.
