    In a relationship everyone wants a sense of appreciation, interest and respect. Every party wants to speak and be listened and needs to feel that he/she is a part of a group whether it is small or big.

    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.

    Those are all good points - it just seems like we are all becoming more social on our phones and online than in person!!

    It's true we're becoming an online society, but unless we're living behind locked doors in our home 24/7, we do still find ourselves around other people almost every day. We go shopping, we go to coffee shops, put gas in our car, go to social events of some kind. All of us at some point are around other people. So we can definitely use the suggestions made by CommunicateWell in any of those situations.


    Because it is still a viable way to network. Just think, chances are someone you meet in real life also has a cell phone or iPod or other online device. So you can each go back to the comfort of your hi-tech world to communicate, after you've met in the non-tech world. ;) And you just might find that having a new human friend or colleague is quite enjoyable!

    Those are some real good ways to become a very social person. As long as you say hi and talk to people then you won't have a problem. That will lead to more friends and a more successful life. Most of the sucessful people are very talkative and friendly. That's also becoming a problem how too many people are just sitting in front of their computers all day and not even getting out of the house.

    Thanks a lot for your replies

    If you want to excel in a company you should have the interest in others, you should like them and listen to them, and when talking you do so nicely and add value.
