  1. A good conversation
    is a sufficient cure,
    but
    a good conversation
    can start
    Only when
    listening is good
    &
    positives is pure.

    no doubt
    all problems exist
    in the absence of
    a good conversation,
    so
    for a good conversation
    respect
    truth
    &
    Sharing
    should be on one station.

  2. A good conversationalist is the one who listen more than he speaks.Listening makes you more memorable.According to my perception points 4 and 7 are important.Before coming to any conclusion or being judgemental we should know the point of view of other person also.’I am always right’ is the wrong attitude to be hold.We should appreciate and value other person’s words too.Moreover, we should share our thoughts and views irrespective of the response or results we get, whenever and wherever is required.Sometimes sharing of experiences help someone to get rid of the problem.

  3. According to me a good conversationalist is the one who listen the things and act accordingly rather than he speaks.Listening makes you more memorable and interesting. We should always give the chance to others to speak and fruitfully accept the things also rather than arguing as listening is a very good habit we must always appreciate the other thoughts in this way we can grow faster.

  4. Focus on the positive. Go for the positive topics. This means rather than talk about past grievances, discuss future goals.During your conversations, adopt a forward-thinking mentality. Less complaining, more solutions. Less judgment, more empathy. Doing the latter will make you a more enjoyable person to speak to. Doing the former will turn you into an energy vampire.

  5. According to my opinion points 4 is more important.
    A good conversationalist always speaks less and observe a lot. Being true to yourself takes courage. It requires you to be introspective, sincere, open-minded and fair. It does not mean you are inconsiderate or disrespectful of others. It means you will not let others define you or make decisions you should make for yourself.Be true to the very best of who you are and live life consistent with your highest values and aspirations.

  6. According to me, point no. 4 holds the key “Respect; Don’t impose, criticize, or judge”. Respect each other’s point of view. It’s fine to express your opinion, but don’t force it on them. Respect each other’s space — don’t encroach on the person’s privacy unless you guys already know each other way. Respect each other’s personal choices — don’t criticize or judge. To do the opposite in each instance would be to impose yourself on others when it isn’t your place to do so. Remember, everyone has the right to be him/herself, just as you have the right to be yourself.

    1. As per my point of view a good conversationalist is need of the hour..I believe point no 2 and 4 is more important if we focus on positive things rather than negative we will achieve good things otherwise negative vibes always deplete our energy. Secondly,we should respect everyone.

      1. In my point of view a good conversationalist should get others to share more by showing an interest and asking open-ended questions to help them get deeper into the conversation. Good questions are asking someone how they think or feel about something that they are talking about. Find that what other areas that are related to their interests that they would love to talk about.

  7. “I believe that words are strong, that they can overwhelm what we fear when fear seems more awful than life is good”

    There are few things that can fill us with such energy and life as a positive conversation. In these conversations you feel like you’re being listened to and, in turn, you want to listen to the other person. There is a real connection between the people involved.

    When we are good conversationalists we find anywhere we go the ease of expressing ourselves, to start a conversation with anyone, even with an unknown. We feel the need to interact and dialogue with people to obtain or give information, entertain, motivate, convince, or persuade.

    There are many essential qualities of a good conversationalist. Some are explained below:-

    1.Be true to yourself:-

    Being true to yourself is a personal choice for truth; making choices about how you want to live. … Being true to yourself means you don’t worry about pleasing other people; living by someone else’s standards or rules. You don’t care what people think of you. You live as your natural self. Without compromise.

    2.Ask purposeful questions:-

    Questions without purpose just fill air space, but purposeful questions accelerate your discussions. … Questions are really the answer. Asking questions is a long-established practice to demonstrate respect, diffuse tense situations, obtain buy-in and make employees feel valued in a way that financial rewards cannot.

    3.Give & Take:-

    “Give and take” is a mechanism inherent to all personal relationships – you cannot expect to receive something if you don’t offer on your own turn. Once the balance between give and take is broken, difficulties arise and partners feel they are not getting too much from their relationship.

  8. Change your mind-set going in. Going into a situation where you will need to speak with people can be nerve-racking. …
    Listen with intent. …
    Ask open-ended questions. …
    Avoid oversharing about yourself.

  9. According to my opinion given that conversational skills is a must-have in today’s world, I thought it’ll be great to write about how to be a great conversationalist, since I have not written about communication before.I also have drawn-out conversations that can go on forever if not for other appointments.
    I don’t think there are any “tricks” or shady techniques you have to apply to be a great conversationalist.
    **Be genuinely interested in the person. Who is this person? What’s on his/her mind? What does he/she enjoy doing? What motivates him/her in life? These are the questions I have for every single person I meet. Since people are part of my life purpose to help others achieve their highest potential, my genuine interest in people, from who they are to what they do, comes naturally.
    Having a genuine interest, not an artificial one, is essential to a great conversation.So have a genuine interest in everyone you speak to.
    **** Secondly Respect is very important for everyone.Don’t impose, criticize, or judge. Respect each other’s point of view. It’s fine to express your opinion, but don’t force it on them. Respect each other’s space — don’t encroach on the person’s privacy unless you guys already know each other way. Respect each other’s personal choices — don’t criticize or judge. To do the opposite in each instance would be to impose yourself on others when it isn’t your place to do so. Remember, everyone has the right to be him/herself, just as you have the right to be yourself.

  10. 50-50 sharing. I always think that a great conversation should consist of equal sharing by both parties. It may be 40-60 or 60-40 depending on the circumstances, but both parties should have equal opportunities to share and contribute to the conversation.
    This means, be sensitive enough to pose questions to the other person if you have been talking for a while. It also means that you should take the initiative to share more about yourself if the other person has been sharing for the most part. Just because the person doesn’t ask you questions doesn’t mean you can’t share; sometimes people don’t ask questions because it is not in their culture to do so, or because they think it may be invasive.
    Ask purposeful questions. Questions elicit answers. The kind of questions you ask will steer the direction of the conversation. To have a meaningful conversation with the other person, ask meaningful questions. Choose questions like, “What drives you in life?”, “What are your goals for this year?” and “What inspired you to make this change?”, over “What did you do yesterday?” and “What are you going to do later?”
    Some people may not be ready to think about conscious questions and that’s fine. Start off with simple, everyday questions as you build a rapport with him/her. Then, get to know him/her better through deeper questions, when you think he/she is ready to share.

  11. Being a great conversationalist is a learnable skill. Whether you want to go from bad to good, or good to great, it helps to know the fundamentals that help you take your conversational abilities to the next level.

    Be *Respectful* to people who are different from you, even if you don’t understand them very well. The differences among us are what make life interesting, and besides, you probably have more in common with people than you know.

    Focus on positives….

    Happiness teaches you how to see the positive over the negative in every situation.

  14. According to me point 4 “Respect”.
    Life is too short to waste your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you.You can also see how those around you thrive in situations where others respect them and treat them with dignity. Showing respect and being thoughtful of others really doesn’t take much. In fact, it feels a lot better to treat others in a fair and justified manner.

  15. If you wish you had the natural ability to make conversation that the people you admire have, don’t despair. Having meaningful conversations is something that can be learned, and with focus and practice, we can all become better at it.

    According to me, following are the key things that will put us on the right track:
    *1.) Be Genuinely interested in the person:*
    The best conversations begin with showing an interest in the other person, their world, and what they might be interested in. Most people love to talk about themselves. Ask them an open-ended question about something that you notice about them. If you can give them a sincere compliment or give them positive feedback, you’ve made a great start. Great conversationalists have a sincere interest in others, notice things about them, and use these things to start and fuel their conversations.

    4.) *Respect. Don’t impose, criticize, or judge :*
    Respect each other’s point of view. It’s fine to express your opinion, but don’t force it on them.

    Respect each other’s personal choices — don’t criticize or judge.

    Remember, everyone has the right to be him/herself, just as you have the right to be yourself.

  16. It may seem counterintuitive, but the best conversationalists aren’t those who always have witty things to say, but are those who are genuine listeners. Communications specialist Sasha Quintana, cofounder of Chatter Republic, says good listeners don’t just listen with their ears, but with their whole body. They lean into the conversation, establish eye contact, and provide their undivided attention to the person they’re speaking with.

    Being a good listener also means that you’re not crafting your response as the person is speaking. “Too often we find ourselves thinking ahead to what we want to say next, not what the person we’re speaking with is saying,” says Quintana. Stay in the moment, giving the other person your full attention, and you’ll be sure to have a more meaningful conversation.

  17. A good, healthy conversation adds zest to life. Yet the art is becoming rare.
    People connect technologically — chat, exchange views, share jokes, send forwards and emoticons — but seem to have neither the patience and time, nor the ability to engage in smart, intelligent conversation.
    Communicating is not the same as having a robust conversation.
    Good conversations are essential to mental and spiritual wellbeing. These occur at various levels.

    In order to understand who is a good conversationalist, it is important to understand who is a bad one! Most would agree that people who talk incessantly about themselves, interrupt you repeatedly to bring in their own story, do not listen attentively, or rebut every point and treat a conversation like an argument, are all awful conversationalists!

    Good conversationalists are rarer than you would imagine. Most garrulous people imagine themselves to be great at good dialogue, but they are nothing more than big talkers.

    It can be said that Good conversation pleases as well as uplifts.

  18. Being a good conversationalist is important be it in work p;lace or social situation.According to me first of all the person should be genuinely interested in other person. if the person has genuine interest he or she will involve in the conversation.
    The second very important thing about a good conversation is there should be fifty fifty sharing of the thoughts….

  22. A good conversationalist is who can easily share his or her knowledge to others. He or she should have patience to listen others. So I am agree with no.3 and no.4. A good conversationalist is who converse not debate. He agrees to listen others rather than arguing. He or she needs to respect other’s views and ideas. And always agrees to learn and explore new things.
