“As embarrassing as it is to write, I used to be a terrible conversationalist. Someone would ask me something and I’d reply with a one word answer. It would kill the conversation and an awkward silence would creep in.”
– Robert Koch
I recently wrote a guest post for Anarcho-Introvert. If you haven’t already, I recommend that you check it out. The post is all about questions and how to ask them. here’s a little sample of what you’ll lear:
- The difference between various types of questions.
- How to ask better questions that lead to deeper conversation.
- Methods to talk yourself out of a dead end.
- The power of Socratic questions.
I highly suggest that you read the article. It’s available right here, and has a lot of great information that I’ve never talked about on this blog before. While you’re over there, be sure to take a look at some of the other articles as well. Anarcho-Introvert is an up and coming site that has a lot of great content.
