I set up this table near other individuals and organizations tabling for political, religious and other causes. When people approach I offer to talk to them about whatever they would like. If they don’t know what they want to talk about I keep a list of questions such as:
- how about this weather?
- what have you been up to lately?
- what are you doing after this?
- how are things?
This formula has lead to conversations with all kinds of strangers on topics from the weather to the Iranian revolution, Native American philosophy, agricultuture, film, etc. The table is very popular.
Of course, you can do this yourself. Here are the instructions on how to talk to anyone. Some guys in Germany did it. And Mitch in Philly. And Samuel Peck changed it up a bit and did it in Australia. Dmitry in Moscow. Jackie Yoo in Korea. Victor sets up in Mexico. And many others.
How To Talk to Anyone – there’s always something to learn
