3 unscientific ways to tell if you’re boring someone

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

1. Lack of requests for clarification. A person who is sincerely interested will ask for elaboration or clarification. “What does that term mean?” or “When exactly did that happen?” are the kinds of questions that show someone is engaged by what you’re saying.

2. Imbalance of talking time. Just because you’re talking a lot doesn’t mean others find you interesting. In general, people who are interested in a subject want to add their own opinions, information, and experiences. If they aren’t doing that, they may just want the conversation to end faster.

3. Body position. People with a good connection generally turn fully to face each other. A person who is partially turned away—or scanning the crowd—isn’t fully engaged in the conversation.

I am very good at reading people - I can generally tell when they are bored with my talk. Not that I stop talking, of course! LOL

Why fun is fun

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Fun is enjoyable because you don’t have to worry about results. You can strive for triumph or you can potter around, tinker, and explore without worrying about efficiency or outcomes.

Friday Funny

Friday, May 11, 2012

On his first day on the job, a rookie New York City cop went out on patrol with his more experienced partner. When they reached 42nd Street, they saw a group of people gathered on a street corner. “I’ll handle it,” said the rookie excitedly. He approached the crowd and shooed them all along. The crowd reluctantly dispersed, looking puzzled. The rookie got back in the car and said, “Not bad, huh?”

“Yeah,” said his partner. “You did okay. Too bad that was a bus stop.”
