How (and Why) to Make Small Talk
Small talk is often thought of as trivial or trite, but a lot more is going than you might think.
To “make small talk” is to successfully create a state of comfort and familiarity around new people. Instinctively, we we seek to connect on a primal, emotional level, so that we feel safe in each others hands.
It is not necessarily the content of what is being said that counts, which is why many of us miss the point. It’s the feeling of lightness, ease and playfulness created by the conversation.
Usually this is the first step toward making a deeper connection with others, and more often than not it’s a necessary one!
