How to make a lasting impression in just five minutes of conversation



Often, we conduct a conversation with the sole purpose of simply keeping it going, rather than trying to make it especially interesting. The result is that it often becomes boring and uncomfortable.

 That’s why we at Bright Side prepared some tips for you on how to avoid this situation and instead seriously impress your conversation partner.

Break the mirror

When a conversation is going badly, an amusing situation often develops which is sometimes referred to as “the mirror.” In order to seem polite, we often ask our conversation partner standard questions, repeat the words they use, or just agree with everything they say. As a result, we lose any enjoyment we might get from the conversation.

When we “break the mirror,” something special appears in the conversation, and it immediately ceases to be boring.
