I usually talk about where I am from, where do I work and what I am interested when I meet new people. I'm not interested in other people personality and I also hate who ask about myself.

I talk a lot of things but in most of time time i talk about science subjects such geology ,environmental science and I also talk about politics.

I tend to seek a common interest and speak about life, new interesting events , share my experience and emotion about travelling, books, music. If i meet colleagues or specialists in my professional sphere we talk about work, related issues and achievements. But more important is to hear your companion.

Usually, I introduce my self and my colleagues to him/her, asking him if he needs any help, asking him about his past experience in the field of work, and does he find the new place.

Well, I suppose that depends with which person I´ll speak to. Probably about its origin, work and family.

When I meet new people, I ask their name first and where they come from. Then, after I introduce myself, I talk about several things according to the situation.

When I meet with somebody for first time, I generally wonder his/her hobbies and I would like to talk about them. If we have in common hobbies, it becomes nice to speak on them.

I usually when meet people for the first time i behave them formal after that i introduce myself and ask her/him about name , country ,family and talk about any general matter .

When I meet unacquainted people I ask questions according to situations. Of course I introduce myself, where they come from and so on.

When I meet people for the first, I usually behave them formal. After I introduce myself, I listen to him/her and we talk about family, job, adress etc. I tell her why I am here.
