Think back to a time when you met someone who was so interesting that you hung onto every word they said, and you wanted to spend more time with them to know more.

What was it about those people that made me want to learn more, and to spend more time with them? Being interesting is a huge advantage at work and in life. Most of all, being with someone interesting automatically makes you more interesting — not just by association, but because you collect more interesting material to pass on. Growing up in a tough inner city neighborhood. The culture shock of attending an Ivy League college where he rowed crew with prep school graduates.

Volunteering on the Obama campaign. Becoming the youngest department head in the history of the organization. And turning down a job at Harvard to pursue his mission of helping inner city youth. First was the fact that Mark and his brother borrowed 25 books from the library every weekend when they were. I suspect that this reading habit helped Mark develop the mindset that led M looking for someone interesting to a lifetime of interesting experiences and gave him broad perspective.

Second, his mission to help those like himself from less privileged circumstances, and give them better life opportunities. This carried him through the entire arc of his education and career. And he expressed it with such authenticity — it was obvious that this is who he is. Third, he was a great communicator — telling his story succinctly and powerfully, actively listening to mine, and creating a personal connection.

When it comes to being interesting, in my experience, it boils down to the following three traits: perspective, authenticity, and connection. The key to having an interesting perspective is what you feed your mind. This could be the books you read, the shows you watch or the podcasts you listen to.

It could also be the experiences you have, whether through travel, adversity or peak experiences. Click To Tweet. Both in terms of the areas you know about and the sources of your knowledge. In an age of technical specialization, this is more important than ever. At work, success often requires knowing a lot about a narrow slice of the world. For example, coding, electronic trading, or tax regulations. Even to the people in your own field. Having a broader perspective is at the heart of creativity, critical thinking, and curiosity — all 21 st century skills that are essential to success in life and at work.

When you travel in multiple circles, you have the chance to pass on new ideas and cross-pollinate and enhance the way others think. Another element of being interesting is showing up in a way that shows people what makes you uniquely you. Rowling who leaned into what she uniquely does — storytelling — and has fascinated us all.

As her quote suggests, no one could make her do it, and no one could have stopped her from doing it. When you do what you uniquely do, you become unstoppable. Most of us struggle to show our whole selves, so we respect those who are brave enough to actually do it. It takes courage to let go of societal norms and lean into who we really are. But unshackled is the only state when we do our best work and fulfill our true potential. The key is not trying to replicate what others do. The third aspect is how you engage people. Are you making a personal connection?

Are you genuinely interested in the other person? And how do you go about sharing what you know? At a recent dinner, two people who are equally interesting on paper showed up entirely differently. They had similar backgrounds — scientists from disadvantaged neighborhoods who overcame hardship to rise to the top of their fields. He brought up new ideas. The other person said very little. But the other one is still a mystery.

When it comes to connecting with others, it starts with sharing what you know. Think of that as contributing. Bringing in ideas from another field that helps people do what they do better and get a new way of looking at things. Wonderful, actionable advice that helps me be better than the day before. Feed your mind with things that are off-piste from what you usually read, watch or listen to.

Explore different areas. Seeing the world from only one point of view might feel more comfortable. But it can limit your possibilities and reduce your ability to think critically. And make you less interesting.

As they say, you really learn something when you have to teach it. If you read a great book, extract quotes from it and work it into conversations.

Write about it in a blog or article. Or leave the book on your desk for your visitors to notice and enjoy. Simply share so others can benefit from a glimpse into a different part of the world. And if it takes you outside of your comfort zoneeven better. When you do what you uniquely do, you free up the real you.

The opposite of interesting is boring. And the surest way to be boring is having the same conversation or interaction over and over again. The friend who keeps banging on about the same topic. Leave a comment below to let me know what you will do to be even more interesting than you already are. Thank you, May, for your most interesting share! Craig N. I love learning from others who demonstrate their interest in learning and sharing about being a blessing to others.

When I meet new people, I actively listen and try to share a snippet or connection that meets a need they are expressing.

Thanks for sharing these observations, Tayo. I also appreciate people who are interested in learning and sharing. Your approach to meeting new people is wonderful. Keep going! I know how strong the crew connection is and always will be. The owner of the CrossFit gym I ed rowed crew, and his ears perk up whenever the topic comes up! And indeed, you have so many great experiences and interests. I hope you give yourself permission to share away! They seem to goody, goody. Not saying that I hate your website. But your website is good, more interesting then school.

What a wonderful article! I love to read and explore new thoughts, but have a harder time inserting what I learn into conversations naturally. I am an interesting person who has had numerous experiences living abroad and who passionately loves learning, but I seldom share about myself unless the person I am talking has a similar background or area of interest. I excel in drawing others out, I guess.
