How would you make a good conversation?
What do you think makes a good conversationalist?
By simply showing an interest in what your partner is talking about. Even if you don't know the topic. Get more information. Keep the talking balance 50/50.
Everyone likes interacting with people who show interest as Hezekiah already mentioned. So what you do is ask questions and listen carefully to the other person's replies until you find common ground on which to enrich the conversation. As a fellow teacher, I'd love it if you could tell me what subject you teach. And as a fellow writer, could you give me advice or tips on how I can write freelance? Seriously, I don't know how to make connections. I'll be more than grateful to hear from you!
Michelle, Wow, what a great question!! I think a good conversationalist is similar to a great storyteller. The topic would depend on the audience however, the conversation should be one that allows the listener to think about what is said as well as keep the listener captivated with stories that relate to the main idea.
When the roles are reversed, the first listener now the conversationalist has to keep the conversation on topic and still captivating.
The listener must actually listen and the conversationalist must keep the conversation on topic as well as draw the listener in. Both while switching roles, should share ideas and keep the conversation going.
By the way, I love the new profile picture!!!
In my personal opinion, it will be having the common ground of interests. With what you are interested in then when you create your conversation with someone or people around you, it will be easier to understand one another and will be a two way communication.
That way the people you are conversing with will be participating and this will lead to the best conversation that you ever interact with.
