If you want to be good at socializing, you need as much useless knowledge you can gather.
- Current events.
- Sports statistics.
- Food recommendations.
- Celebrity gossip.
- What is going on in politics.
- Random facts.
After you have this information, you need to go to where people meet and congregate.
After you’re there, you need to overhear conversations and look out for a point that you can discuss.
Once you find one, tie in one of your useless information points into the existing conversation. Make sure it compliments the view points of the people around you.
After you do that, you will need to hold up the conversation, which means you will have to discuss more useless knowledge to keep them interested in what you have to say.
After the end of the night, everyone will go home and forget who you were, but hey, you did a great job of socializing while you were at the venue itself.
