I have a habit of talking to people.
Shocking, I know.
You meet wonderful people by doing this. As much as I think it brightens up their day, I really do it to brighten my own day.
Yes, sometimes I find rude people. Not as often as you may expect, even in London.
A key skill in getting strangers to open up and talk is asking the right questions.
I often find questions like “How are you?” or “What do you do for a living?” tend to lead to short conversation. So I started playing with questions.
My top question that works and seems to take people by surprise is:
What do you do that interests you?
I have found out about cooking, boxing, water colour painting, role play games of which World of Warcraft seems most popluar, sawing, trains, drums, books and the list goes on.
What I like about it is how easy it is to ask questions and keep the conversation going.
So what interests you?
