TIL: How to Have a Good Conversation

Everything about Mark Zuckerberg is pure hacker. Hackers don't take realities of the world for granted; they seek to break and rebuild what they don't like. They seek to outsmart the world.
— Sarah Lacy.

Hi guys, sometimes I need to talk to someone about some things and sometimes the conversation and rapport part doesn’t work out. Here are the things I’ve learned on how to have a good conversation to anyone.

  • Don’t multitask. Be present.
  • Don’t pontificate (meaning - express one’s opinions in a way considered annoyingly pompous and dogmatic.).
    Don’t just butt in when someone is speaking with their mind. Its considered rude to just cut someone who is talking, I think its same for every culture.
  • Use open-ended question.
  • Go with the flow.
  • If you don’t know, say that you don’t know.
  • Don’t equate your experience with theirs.
  • Try not to repeat yourself.
  • Listen.
  • Be brief.

Hope you guys, enjoyed this article and as always live life!
