Just because you are a people person, does not mean that all the things you say are interesting. There are a lot of people that talk a lot, and are the wolds social butterflies, but sometimes those same people can be very boring. If you see people start to shy away, or even run from you when you come to talk to them, just keep these things in mind so people will enjoy talking with you.
1. Lay Off The Details.
Try to remember that sometimes you may need to edit yourself. You can get your point across without drowning them in details. Try to only bring up the important points, and if it doesn’t add to your story then maybe you don’t have to to tell them those parts.
2. Give Them Time to Answer You.
If you ask someone a question, give them time to answer you before you move on to giving them another question, or even the answer. If they are answering you, do not interrupt them, that is just rude. It is basically telling them that really you don’t care what they have to say, so why in the world would they want to talk to you?
3. Pick Your Battles.
Pick your battles. I can’t even begin to tell you how important this is. There are some things are just meant for you to let it go. If you choose to fight every battle that your confronted with, you will just come across as a know it all. It is OK to have an opposing point of view and not have to bring it up every chance you get.
4. Always Speak Well of Who You Are Talking About.
Find something nice to talk about that someone else did. You will make a good impression on people by letting them know that you can find good with what other people are doing, and that you don’t always just talk about yourself.
