I guess I learned how to communicate with people when I was a flight
attendant. I worked as a flight attendant for five years. The most important
thing you have to do in that job is to talk to passengers... especially during
long flights. You learn to talk about all kinds of stuff, and you find out just
how interesting some people's lives are. I think the key to being a good
conversationalist is to be sincerely interested in other people and to try to
get them to talk about themselves as much as possible.
