To initiate a conversation, we normally ask our friends. “How are you?” But isn’t it too cliche to ask the same question every time?

We have wired our brains so that we often use the same three-word statement to initiate a conversation with everyone. Unconsciously we say, “How Are You?” and that’s the only thing we know.

Don’t you think it’s time to evolve our conversation style and make them better? Asking interesting questions can be a good way to start a healthy conversation.
