It is also important on how to choose the words and the how to approach a person to pick up a conversation, be it formal or casual. Conversations are important because they have the ability to resolve conflicts and find solutions to any situation you are in.

If you do not develop your conversational skills, you will be let down and ignored in a social circle. The core of a man's knowledge comes from interaction with different kinds of people. You have to possess a specific skill set that allows you to open up with other people and they should be able to give back the same to you.
