"You are boring. So, so boring."

putthison:

The brilliant Scott Simpson explains something important: how not to be an awful, boring person.

Scott is a guy I’ve seen walk into a thousand rooms and make five new best friends in ten minutes. He knows what he is talking about. Pay attention to this man.

I’ve become a more engaged listener over the last year, and it’s paid off tremendously. This, admittedly, sounds horrible, but I used to have to work to take an interest in other people. I used to get nervous and decide talking to a stranger one-on-one wasn’t worth the effort.

But ever since I made it a priority, it’s become easier, and it’s now a reflex for me to keep other people talking.

I’m curious if having an outlet where I get to do nothing but talk about me has made me more willing to hang back and give other people the floor in conversation.
