  • The need to become novel is nothing new. Many people strive to be well-liked and stand

    out from the crowd. Nevertheless, being interesting is hard work at times, especially if a

    person is transitioning from being a bashful individual. There are a few instances when

    people try, only to end up looking awkward. These are but a few of the things a person

    needs to avoid, as these can affect their chances of gaining a significant network.

    There are some tricks that a person can use to catch the interest of the people around.

    These are just a few things they can keep in mind to become more interesting without

    being a source of ridicule.

    Being Open-Minded

    Interesting people are open-

    minded. They avoid being judgmental,

    and they are sensitive to the reaction of

    the person they are interacting with.

    People take interest in someone if they

    exhibit signs of being perceptive and

    unbiased. More importantly, open-

    mindedness provides someone an

    access to other peoples viewpoints.

    Sharing is Caring

    Interesting people share what they have

    explored. Others will take notice of

    someone if he is generous with the

    things he knows and he willingly shares

    them. For instance, an interesting

    person shares with others their

    experiences while on overseas travel.

    They may share with people what it is

    like to be exposed to other cultures.

  • Being Humorous

    Funny people are always

    interesting. Others may wonder how

    they come up with smart banters and

    witticisms within a short span of time.

    One word of caution: those who want to

    become interesting through humor

    should veer away from politically correct

    remarks and jests that tackle sensitive

    topics.

    Becoming an interesting person should come off naturally. One should not appear as

    though he is trying hard. Otherwise, they run the risk of appearing awkward and gawky.

    They should instead master the craft of surprising people.
