Do you make these 10 mistakes in a conversation?

Conversation is an art, if you want to do it right. It is a big topic to discuss about, and has a lot of areas for improvements as it will affect your personal and professional life. This article will help. Henrik sends me his article on improving your conversation skill by introducing some common mistakes and solutions on it:

  • Not listening
  • Asking too many questions
  • Tightening up
  • Poor delivery
  • Hogging the spot-light
  • Having to be right
  • Talking about a weird or negative topic
  • Being boring
  • Not reciprocating
  • Not contributing much

Great rounds up on the common mistakes.

Most of the mistakes wouldn’t really push me away from the conversation, but the mistake Having to be right is deadly. Conversation is not about “winning” and definitely not about proving oneself “right”. If a person is doing this in front of me, I will refer the person to a debate forum and avoid to talk to him/her once and for all.

In your opinion, which mistake is the most deadly?
