The Meaning Behind the Most Common Introduction Question
I want to return back to “the” question we are all asked when we meet people “what do you do.” As I continue to think about this question and struggle with my answer, I wonder what the person is asking. What is the person wants to know, and what is their motive for the question? When asking “the” question, are they trying to uncover what you have in common that you can connect on or what you do that is interesting that I would like to learn about, or are they wanting to know your worth to them based on your income or your network?
I want to think that they want to connect with you and not value you when you ask the question “What do you do” what answers are you seeking and why. I would love to know your thoughts.
