Listen Up: Be a Great Conversationalist

If you're at a party and have nothing to say, take a genuine interest in other people. Be a polite listener. Ask tactful questions about things you'd like to know more about. "You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you," wrote Dale Carnegie in his 1936 classic, "How to Win Friends & Influence People." Of course, it pays to be up on current events, but learning to make good conversation also hinges on being genuinely interested in others.
