Conversation for introverts

In case you haven't checked it out yet, Michelle George's blog is fantastic. I've linked to her series "Into Introversion" in my Favorite Introverted Articles on the sidebar. She has a new post in that collection called "Making Conversation - I didn't know how!" This is great for those shy introverts (no that's not redundant) who struggle to make conversation - she lists some open-ended questions to ask that will start and prolong a conversation. One thing to always remember - people like to talk about themselves! Questions get people talking and also take some of the burden off of us to do most of the talking.
