What are the qualities In « person that make it easy for him to talk to anyone? They are all qualities that can be cultivated. The most Important Is antlc- patlng with pleasure the meeting of strangers. The Jerson who likes o know people meets them \vith an enthusiam that s easily felt and is always flattering. Another factor in being able to talk to anyone is self-confidence. A self-confident person Isn't worrying whether he is making a good 'mpression or saying just the right hings. He is so at ease himself that le Is able to concentrate on put- Mng the other person at ease. Being interested in many things also makes It easy to talk to anyone. You don't have to be an expert on a subject if you are just ntercsted enough to be able to ask .ntelligent questions and listen to :he answers you get without boredom. And. then, of course, there is the mportant ability to make small .alk. Many intelligent people lack his ability and apparently even hink it is beneath them to try to do it. Yet small talk can cover many an awkward moment and can erve to put two persons or a group at ease -during the difficult moments of getting acquainted. Being able to tali to anyone is distinct asset—and one that it s Important for anyone to cultl- ate.
