3 Conversational Tricks to Excite Anyone

3 Conversational Tricks to Excite Anyone

One of the most common problems people struggle with is conversational skills.

Technology rewires our brains to think in terms of memes, posts, and videos, so we’re losing out on real-world talk!

When you struggle with conversational skills, you feel anxious, creating a downward spiral in which you miss out on the meaningful connection you know you need.

Here are 3 antidotes you can use now to make your conversations EXCITING.

Number one: “The Mirror”

This trick is so simple that you won’t believe it until you try it.

When someone finishes saying something, repeat the last 3–5 words they said in the exact same way. I’ve done this for minutes on end, it’s actually hilarious.

Here’s what happens: someone will finish saying something like, “yeah so I really want to travel to Europe.”

Then you repeat: travel to Europe?

And INSTANTLY the person will go, “yeah I wanna [explain reasons here].” You can keep doing this until you find something to add onto.

Number two: “Bold Statements.”

Number two: “Bold Statements.”

Now that you’ve got the person opening up, you should be feeling a bit more confident.

At this point, you probably are thinking of some questions to ask them. Problem? Endless questions are SO 1900’s.

Instead of saying, “what do you do for work?” Say: “I think you’re a doctor.”

The recipient will go: “What?!? Why’s that.” Or, your guess will be right, and you’ll blow everyone’s minds!

Then you answer by giving a legitimate reason to back up your statement. For example, “you speak in a very formal & articulate manner which reminds me of my doctor.”

#2 Number two: “Bold Statements.”

This trick opens up an exciting discussion where you both are operating on a deeper level instead of boring, surface-level “What do you do” type questions.

Note: the statement should be at least slightly accurate, and not come off as “judgy.” It should be more fun, and always be a compliment…

Number three: “Share the Love”

Number three: “Share the Love”

Put on a smile because you’re about to spread some good energy. Everyone LOVES praise, so why not give it out, especially when it’s well-deserved?

If someone is cute- tell them. If someone is hilarious- confess it. You’re hurting no one.

As I hinted at you can combine the previous trick with this one. Example:

“Wow, you’re really smart. You must be a doctor or something!” (say with a smile)

The person will blush from happiness, and your guess will either be right and they’ll go “OMG you’re awesome” OR they’ll go, “thank you, I’m actually a [job].”

#2 Number three: “Share the Love”

Then you can use the first tip and go, “oh you’re a [job]” and they’ll start elaborating about the deeper reasons they chose that profession. 📷(:

Now, get out there! This works with everyone- coworkers, family, friends, elevator talks. Go try it!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
