What’s up internet? My name is TridentLion.
This is a blog post of the YouTube series “3 Takeaways in 3 Minutes.” This episode is #10 on 3 ways to be more outgoing.
Adopt some principles from Dale carnieges classic book “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” I can’t get into all of them in the blog but here’s a few.
-Become geniunely interested in others
-Use others first or preferred names
-Make the conversation about the person your talking too
People are infinitely more interested in themselves than others. So making the conversation about them will make the social interaction all the more easy for you.
Now for the second and third takeaways I collaborated with BePrimo. The Takeaways they presented were as followed…
Have questions prepared that you can ask anyone to start a conversation, and/or continue a conversation.
My expansion on this takeaway is to make sure the questions you ask make them feel good. For example I’ve been doing sales for 5 years and when I have a client thats a couple Ill ask them how they met each other, or what was the 1st date like. It is important to make the conversation fun & interesting for them, by doing so it will make your social interactions easier and more valuable.
Always say yes.
This takeaway BePrimo presented I have mixed feelings towards. In general I dont think it is best to always say yes no matter what. However with the context of this blog, “How to be more outgoing?” It can be valuable & benefitical to say yes to social gatherings & interaction if your goal is to be more outgoing. To be outgoing and social you have to put yourself in situations to do so. The more social situations you can put yourself into the easier socializing in general can become.
