But I guess I tend to overlook that they are as important as talkers since you can't both talk at the same time. People do seem to listen when I say something, although not always super insightful. But to always have something interesting to say might be perfectionist thinking.

The best conversation skill is to get the other person to talk and then get out of the way. I've had girls tell me what an awesome conversationalist I am, but truth be told she did more of the talking. I just brought up topics until I found one she was passionate in, then got out of the way and acted interested.

Quote:The great gift of conversation lies less in displaying it ourselves than in drawing it out of others. He who leaves your company pleased with himself and his own cleverness is perfectly well pleased with you.
