Ashley Brooke Designs: What a Good Conversationalist Knows

A good conversationalist knows many things.  Including...

Know when to stop talking: People who talk too much can also be the ones who speak without thinking.  And we all know that this can lead to embarrassing moments.

Keep up with world events: Reading a newspaper or magazine will help you come up with subject matter to discuss with others and you'll be able to relate to other people's discussions.

Avoid Repetitions: Stories told multiple times can be boring.  If you aren't sure about whether or not you've told the story before, ask "Did I tell you about Lucy's latest escapade?"

Don't Whisper: Whispering or talking low to one person, can denote something being kept in secret.
