You Don’t Have to Be a Psychologist to Understand Someone

If you want to understand what someone values, start by taking a close look at what they have.

We often meet new people at parties or through work situations. Do you have a good way to get to know someone new without just talking about your job and where you are from?

We all know it’s best to avoid talking about politics, religion, and sexual orientation. Usually you are just looking for a pleasant way to pass the time and maybe to find a new friend. Talking about touchy subjects makes neither very likely.

The best way to really get to know someone is to learn what they do (with their spare time) and what they like (probably also shows up in what they do). The questions below will give you some new ideas for topics to discuss when meeting someone new. Be ready with your own answers too.
