    Her enthusiasm about every stranger just being a wealth of knowledge and new experience has lessened my social anxiety a lot. Thank you.

    "A conversation is like reading a book, you can turn to any page you want. You can flip to you favorite chapter, you can read as long as you want and you can read what you want. And every person trust me is a really good book." Wow

    I was a very social child, I was pretty popular at school too because I could easily hold a conversation with anyone and got along with everyone. As I got older I sort of lost that social ability. I'm not anti social, I can talk to people. Indeed I find it easier talking to strangers than some family members! But I'm working on getting my old social skills back and thankfully I succeeded. How? The only way I can explain it is: Learn not to care, learn not to be nervous, learn not to be afraid of silences and just let conversations flow naturally. Humans are social creatures, just let it come naturally. You are what you imagine yourself to be, so imagine yourself as social and talkative.

    She is proof of what she preaches. When she first comes on stage, I thought her pretty but her bubbly personality came out, and the longer she spoke the more attractive she becomes. Not surprised at the taxi driver"s proposal.

    "Every single person in your life was once a stranger to you" - Including your parents and siblings!

    What I love about this is that she didn't target an audience with the mindset that they were insufficient in some way to explain their difficulties communicating with strangers. She just focused on teaching how to converse from the perspective of making it better no matter what your background. That demonstrates a high level of emotional intelligence.

    She has a point. When I am trying to improve my conversational skills, I listen to the radio daily. Listening to people who do it for a living improves the listeners skills and sort of gives you a role model of how to listen and talk

    Summary of the 7 Ways:

  • Sophia Koko

    I love the analogy that people are like books, filled with stories to tell. I'm always so worried what everyone is thinking about me that sometimes I forget to really be present in conversations. I end up missing out on so many amazing stories and experiences because of my anxieties but this actually makes me want to talk to strangers. Amazing job!

    I just really love all the tips she gave and how she views people as not a threat (if you are an introvert, you know exactly what I mean) but a book to be read, and it's true. Isn't knowing a person just like reading a story.
