Advice: How To Fix A Dry Conversation?

Photo Credit: http://www.wikihow.com

Hello Everyone!

I wish for you a fabulous Thursday that flows as smooth as silk. How is life on your side of the globe today? I’m going to offer some water for a dry question that was posted on Quora today. This question posed is on how to revive and bring back from the dead a bad conversation. I always think it’s important to probe the other party with questions. It serves to continue the chat, add depth, and perform a temperature gauge on the other person. Some people are just shy or uninformed on the topic of discussion. In other instances, that person may just need some help with the direction and how to contribute to the conversation. It could be a topic that the person doesn’t even know much about. The subject may be sensitive and the person is rather cautious as to how to approach it tactfully. We can’t be total experts on every conversation that exists on the planet. It doesn’t hurt to probe further with the following questions: 1) how? 2) what? 3) where? 4) when? 5) why? Worst case scenario, you change gears and speak on a different topic or abandon the attempt at idle conversation all together. You can’t force a person to have a personality where it doesn’t exist. The gift of gab is not for everyone…LOL! Some of us can blab for hours on end! 🙂 Other folks can bring on the silent treatment for the next decade. Well, how do you add a spark to a dry chat? I’d love to hear your unique approach to adding spice and water to a rather dry vibe. By all means, share your perspective by dropping it down in the comment section below. Now, without further delay, go ahead and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“How do I fix a dry conversation?”

By Daniel Tesfai

MY RESPONSE:

“The best way to fix a dry conversation is to probe with questions. You ask further with: how? what? where? when? why? If the person doesn’t expand on the topic when probed with questions, then you can state your responses. If this doesn’t prompt the person to feed off of your attempts to liven up the chat, then feel free to push the eject button. Pretend a person is in the hospital and ya gotta run! People can have other major life events going on in life that work excellent at serving as a distraction. Others can be nervous when speaking so they require encouragement. I wish you much luck with giving CPR to a near dead conversation. #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls”

Thanks for hopping on the lily pad that sits in my metaphorical pond near my advice post today. How do you fix a dry conversation? I’m a chatty Kathy who asks a ton of questions when I’m in a group so the conversations are rarely dry. If they are, then it’s my cue that the person doesn’t want to be there. There are many reasons for a dry conversation. I try to not let it take up too much real estate in my mind. Does a dry conversation get under your skin? (see what I did there?) Let me know, in the comment section below, if you either like or dislike my advice? Make sure to explain exactly as to your position so that I may gain an understanding. I’m interested in hearing different perspectives on this one. I’m also sharing my latest (8) podcast episodes that are listed down below from The Verbally Disastrous Podcast, via links for Spotify & YouTube down below. If you are into reading on a Kindle, check out my newest short story release that belongs to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library short story series on Amazon down below.

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
