Even if you are described an introvert person, one day you will find yourself engaged in a kind of communication or relationship with others. You may have the desire to be social but don't know how to become so.
Read my following main recommendations, then tell me what you think or you can add other suggestions:
1- Plan some activities to do with others twice a week at least.
2- Make it a point to talk to three new people at least each time you find yourself among people or make a valid effort to meet someone new everyday.
3- Learn to meet and greet others.
4- Learn to ask others open-ended questions which allow expansion of the conversation into other areas enabling you to build rapport and trust.
5- Be a good listener ( Have a genuine interest in what others say. )
6- Learn to have good conversations with others that can allow you to understand them and their needs.
7- Get other people to talk about their passions, dreams, family or what they're interested in and listen, listen and listen effectively.
8- Share your interests, ideas, and dreams with others. Talk, listen, learn, and support.
9- When you disagree, start with points that are agreed, then express your points of view nicely without any tone of aggression.
Do you agree with all above? Let me know what you think. What else can you add to be a social person? Waiting for your replies.
