What defines a good conversationalist?

Here are some do’s and don’ts.

Don’t tell humorous or serious stories about someone or something unless you are certain the person or group you are conversing with would approve. However, it would be acceptable if someone else had already done so.

Don’t endeavor to start a protracted conversation with someone who is obviously busy or in a rush. However, it would be acceptable to inquire when might be an appropriate time for you to engage them in a lengthy conversation.

Don’t inject conversation about yourself while conversing with others. It is rude and projects the idea that you are more important than the person with whom you’re speaking.

Don’t discuss the plot, ending or important points of a movie, book, TV show, etc. unless you know the person has already seen or read it.

Don’t talk about a subject you know nothing about; it will only end up making you look foolish or worse yet ignorant.

Above all, never lose sight of the fact that other people will wish to have a chance to talk rather than listen.

Good conversationalists are cognizant of the fact that they have two ears and one mouth.
