How do you introduce yourself?
Which do you use most?
Just your name, your occupation, your spiritual being, familial position, character traits, employment status, politics, stay anonymous or something else entirely?
Please choose the ONE you use most. Introduce yourself to me as though I had walked up to you at a dinner party.

I would say hello and if shown friendly reciprocation - maybe ask your opinion about a hot social topic, fashion thing, something not too personal but something to start a engaging conversation. Otherwise, I just flick a eyebrow if not welcome, lol
I'd just say, "Hi, I'm Lisa Warren," and depending on what the situation/function was, I'd probably add something to let the person have a basic idea about my "relationship" to the situation.
Example, at a dinner party I'd probably add something like, "I work with ________" (the host's name) or "I'm ______________'s sister-in-law."
I figure, giving my name would serve the purposes for that dinner party and for any future conversations. Saying something like "I'm Mary's sister-in-law" would help give people a reading on who was who at the party, but would also help explain why I might do something like go into the kitchen and help "Mary" (when the other guests, maybe "Mary's" work colleagues, might not do the same thing).
Other than that, I wouldn't assume anyone would be interested in my offering more info about myself with a simple introduction, but I also don't think some things are anybody's business in some circumstances anyway. I'd save any "extra's" for if/when a conversation grew from the simple introduction and whatever "non-me-related" thing I might say (or they might say) to start a conversation with a stranger.
(By the way... Hi, Anne Marie. I don't think I really need to introduce myself because, if you're the same "Anne Marie", we've already met on another writing site. Nice to "see" you again.)
