People love to be asked questions even if they have no clue about the answer. Anyways, that’s not what we’re talking about today. From experience, we love to talk about what we know. Ask questions you think they have answers to and be willing to listen.
For instance: “I’m curious about your experience with jumpsuit.” “Can you tell me more about 9/11?” “I’d love to get your opinion on Mr President.” “Can I get your advice on investment?” “What do you think about going on a road trip next summer?” “What’s your Thought on dating?” “Please share your experience with me on having a healthy relationship.”
Most people love to share their experiences. They love to talk about their lessons learned. They love to know that their voice is respected and people appreciate their perspective. So when speaking to someone about a topic that is clearly important to them, ask them to share their thoughts. It’s a guaranteed way of making people think highly of you. Plus, friendships rarely fizzle out if you are making an effort to learn about the other person’s thoughts, feelings, and ideas.
