Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I would like some ideas on how to develop the ability to talk to and get along with people. How do you develop the gift of the gab?
So far I have come up with a to-do list of things to try:
- Reading books with good character development
- Learn drawing to improve creativity
- Learning a mnemonic system (because it helps form creative associations)
- Join a sport
I am super reserved and although I am not actually shy, my personality type is perceived to be "shy".
The problem for me is not anxiety. I simply just can't think of anything to say in a conversation, especially when it comes to being witty or funny.
I still choose to go to as many social events as possible with work/friends, but I dread the fact that after about an hour I go quiet because I can't keep up - EVERY TIME.
Some people are social because of their jobs, while I am a programmer and don't get this opportunity.
Was not very social in higschool because I had a super tight social circle.
I'm sure there is someone out there who has figured this out and can guide me in the right direction.
