Small talk creates involuntary bathroom attendants. We've all seen them, people who hang out in the bathroom, perhaps they've handed you a paper towel? These people will do anything to not have to walk into a party or business event and talk to strangers. They are the human "Hoovers" they open a vacuum around themselves that is hard to fill, because they are so uncomfortable with small talk. Don't be that person. Don't think of small talk as a chore, but an opportunity to learn something, meet interesting people, and practice being approachable. What do you say to make a great impression? The best impression you can make is to shape your lips around your teeth, I mean, smile. :)
Please let me know if you have some small talk techniques that you use. List them below.
