Chapter 5:
Conversational Skills and Applications
Abstract
The last chapter discussed a number of theories and principles to use as a guide for conversation, to help you recognize what makes a good conversation and what can get you into trouble conversationally. Here, we discuss more specific applications and how to put these principles into practice in greater detail. This is where the rubber hits the road, or in other words, where theory gets put into practice. Keep in mind that like etiquette (discussed in Chapter 4), these suggestions will not apply equally well in all contexts or for all people. There is simply too much variation in the world to create absolute rules. But like the Golden Rule, this chapter should give you a useful starting framework that you can adapt to your personal style, culture, and circumstances.
