Over the years, I have been present in a lot of situations where people are meeting each other for the first time. These situations often unfold with people introducing each other. Something about it has always made me uncomfortable. While introducing ourselves, we just talk about our current role in our current company and maybe some of the past companies that we have worked in. Or when I was a student, I would simply talk about which class I was in and if my studies are going fine.
This is so true. This also makes me think about how we are living in a bubble. Its because we have made peace with our worldviews and definitions about work, people and things in general. This alternate line of questioning could surely change things for the better.
This is a pretty amazing topic to write about. In recent years, people have become more socially awkward than ever before including myself. This does help a lot.
