Want to be interesting?

..be interested. It's simple: at any given moment, 99% of people are craving validation in the form of interest in themselves, their ideas and their experiences.

Ask a few good questions, add in an anecdote that conveys understanding and connection and - tada - you're their new favorite person.

Another way to think of this is that the best way to connect people is to develop curiosity in them. Curiosity is contagious and irresistible.

Want to be interesting? Be interested. You'll be irresistible.
