I think the best advice I can give for improving social skills is simply: Practice. You can study techniques like matching and mirroring to build rapport, and you can memorize cutesy acronyms like SOFTEN....

Overview

I think the best advice I can give for improving social skills is simply: Practice. You can study techniques like matching and mirroring to build rapport, and you can memorize cutesy acronyms like SOFTEN....

Like many introverts I was pressured by others to socialize more. But I largely resisted this pressure, partly because I enjoyed being an introvert. I often viewed extroverts as lacking in intelligence and depth, and I can’t say I wanted to count myself among them.
However, over a long period of time, I eventually found myself becoming more and more extroverted.

I’ll share some deep thoughts on how to consciously create intimate connections with other people. I’ll also explain the mindset/heartset that can help you overcome any fear of rejection.

This book is composed of the articles from Steve Pavlina's website. It contains articles about social skills, human relationships, communication, public speaking, approach anxiety and many more...

This has the feel of reading pages from the author's personal journal. While there are some nuggets you may be able to apply, if you are looking for an in depth guide to improving your social skills you will not be satisfied. If you are looking for general, fatherly type advice then this is the book for you.
