Then just start talking about stuff that's interesting to you. Maybe it will be interesting to them too.
I'll remember you as a pleasant person but not the most interesting one. I've found that the most interesting people tend to talk a bit more because they always have something interesting to say, either stories or insights, and people want them to speak more.

Worst case? Learn to convincingly feign genuine interest. The key is to fool yourself. I found that everyone has something interesting to say, although most of them do not even know it. By Nike Roshe Navy Blue

Genuine interest + actively engaging with them + interacting with another's storyOf course, there is always more to learn. :)
Dale Carnegie says that the secret to being a good conversationalist is to be a good listener. People like to talk, especially about themselves (and I don't really mean that in a bad way). Roshe Run Shoes For Girls If you are a shy person, ask questions that don't have short, dead end answers (so no questions with binary yes/no answers) and you can "steer" the conversation while the other person does all the "peddling." ;)I highly recommend Dale Carnegie's classic How To Win Friends and Influence People.

I just dive right in with "So, how about those crazy Republicans!" If they're a Republican, they'll be offended and go away. Automatically hating anyone with a different point of view before even getting to know them is definitely the way to go. It's called "diversity", right?
taking "genuine interest" you'll help them find something they were not really aware of, and then all you have to do is shut up. They'll talk for the whole time and end up finding you the most interesting person around.

Having a genuine interest in the other party makes all the difference. (Lack sincerity going in and you'll sound like a polished politician at best.) When you really care about the person you're meeting, your external focus leaves you no room to worry what they think of you an all too common distraction and leads to a self reinforcing confidence that aids the exchange more than any pre scripted techniques can.
Same here, although I didn't contemplate the change. It just sort of happened somewhere in my late 20s. Late bloomer I guess? Always thought I was smart and understood people. These are quite universal.
People are so multidimensional and have such varying experiences that it is arrogant to think that there is nothing interesting about someone you have just met. They may not be good at communicating and they may seem to be boring or shallow. But, they almost certainly have knowledge and experiences that are foreign to you. The trick is finding what they are.
