Right now, watch the video on this page to discover a KILLER technique for not running out of things to say in conversations. Then click the big orange button below to continue to the next page, where you’ll learn more…
The Technique In The Video Explained:
- Do you ever have a hard time keeping a conversation going?
- Does it ever feel like you have nothing to say? Like your mind has gone blank?
- Do you hate awkward silences?
What if I told you that the next time you talk to someone, you could talk more easily and effortlessly than ever before, just by applying one simple (but little-known) conversation technique?
This little-known conversation technique is called “Conversation Threading.” For years I have been using this technique to make shy and socially anxious people become instantly better at making conversation. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll pretty much always know what to say next to people.
So how does conversation threading work? There are 3 basic steps:
STEP 1: The other person says something.
STEP 2: You notice the threads in what they said.
This is really easy. Let me explain…
Threads are basically topics or “subject words” inside a sentence. Every sentence someone tells you has a few of these threads in it.
For example, take the sentence, “I saw Bob at the mall last Saturday.” The threads, or topics, could be Bob, mall and last Saturday.
So all you have to do is notice these topics and then saying something about them, which is…
STEP 3: Pick a thread and respond.
So for the last example you simply pick one of the topics mentioned and say something about it.
So let’s respond to the threads in the last example:
- Bob – I tried out for the football team with Bob last year. He made quarterback and crushed all the new guys.
- Mall – Have you been to the mall lately? I can?t believe they?re closing down the movie theatre to build a new clothing store!
- Last Saturday – Last Saturday I went camping for a family reunion. I never want to share a tent with my brother again.?
The cool thing is, all of these replies will make the conversation flow smoothly because they relate to what the other person said before you.
Remember to TEST this technique out in the real world.
I may take you a few tries to get the hang of it. But once you do, you’ll find that making conversation has become several times easier!
Best of all, this simple technique is amazing at getting rid of those awkward silences where you’re desperately trying to think of what to say.
Easy as pie 🙂
