I don't connect that well. My body physically won't want to meet new people but I force myself. Mentally I'm fine it's just I get really bad stomach pains before meeting new people.

I would say I'm good with all, but having eye contact the whole conversation, would be hard, but I manage.

I'm a shy person. I can hold a conversation for a little while, if I need to. But eventually I run out of things to say. I also hate small talk, so I tend to give very short answers when I don't feel like talking. I can maintain eye contact, as long as I'm not feeling embarrassed. I'm also fine with talking to strangers, especially If I know I'll never see them again.

I can hold a basic conversation, but not for long unless it is with someone I know well. I can't keep eye contact with most people. I guess I would say that when it comes to the actual "socializing" part of social intelligence, I am not the best. However, I am good at reading people and social situations.

I work in retail, so I can be good with conversations. If need to be, I can. But I mostly dislike social interactions with anybody.

Pretty decent. While I am a little bit introverted (have only a small group of well trusted friends, mainly keep to myself) in large groups or at work I get by quite well if need be.

Can you hold a conversation?
Yes, if the conversation is something I'm, comfortable talking about and the other people is good at carrying on a conversation as well. Or else, no.
Can you keep eye contact the whole conversation?
Definitely.

How good can you converse with strangers?
It depends. Like if they are well groomed and don't seem threatening then, sure.

Are you a good conversation starter?
Kind of..?
Sometimes I am great but other times I just get shy out of the blue and then feel to embarrassed to talk.

If we're talking real life:
1. Not really
2. I avoid eye contact out of habit
3. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say a strong 2
3. Nope.

BEING PRESENT TO THE MOMENT IS KEY, and a learned and maintained skill!
ENGAGE>
A weak frontal cortex is why eye contact can't be maintained. training your eyes to focus to the present moment will make your eyes look more active, which will make you more interesting to talk to. If you meditate while focusing your presence towards your forehead you will see waht I mean, rather then the middle or back of the head, which is when your in your head and your eyes glaze.

If you aren't reacting to what was said, then what was the god damn point. Life is already meaningless before and after, why make the present time you have meaningless too?

Conversation is only draining if you aren't comfortable. Its meant to be invigorating, mostly meaningless and stupid like sex. WHat matters is the emotions exchanged in the present moment.
ENGAGE
Also here's a trick, you don't keep eye contact the whole time :l. If you maintain eye contact for too long it means you want to fight and/or kill each other. Instinctually you will want to look either down or up. If you look up to their forehead it shapes your eyes to look like you want to murder the person so don't do that. You want to circumvent their eyes and nose in a triangle as you communicate and no lower, or else your a bitch, but even then you don't need to be face forward the whole damn time. Just do what feels right. If your in class or a seminar of some sort you can maintain eye contact the whole time because its up to the speaker to maintain eye contact with you or not, he/she is an idiot if they just keep looking at you so if they do while they are speaking you should stare them down until they stop for their own good. :D.
ENGAGE
If you look at a girl's mouth while your talking it means you want to kiss her, btw.
ENGAGE
The thing with eye contact is it stimulates your brain to retain information, so the most important bits of what you are conversating about should be said when eye contact is maintained, try it you will see how your brain naturally pays attention to those bits the most. When you look away its for your own benefit and those conversating will understand that, thats their job. Your job is to know when its necessary to look away while still being engaged. Thats why you have to be present to the moment with your eyes, so you can train yourself to keep track to that.
ENGAGE
Smile always.
ENGAGE
Positive emotions always.
ENGAGE
ENGAGE
p.s. if you pay attention to using your core (abs), as well as pinch your butt to activate your lower core while conversating you will feel more comfortable and aware.

Elliot Hulse fix:

Also if you have a problem of looking down, try stretching your arms all the way back until you can't stretch back anymore with your hands raised and your mouth wide open, tongue out as far as it can go. It stimulates your man genes that have been suppressed by society's oppression.
Probably some muscles will pop, (one of my shoulders and my chest did) plus it opens your vocal box cause your throat is stifled from lack of use. Also this will cause you to shake in certain parts of your body, those are the parts that have been weakened where they can't be used anymore and the more you stretch them the better you will feel as a functional human.
ENGAGE
Your sex life will be a million times better using this too, cause eye contact is most of what matters in terms of emotions.

No idea..... when I have to be social I tend to just sort of push down all my anxiety and freak out after the fact.

I'm entirely useless at all conversation at all times for any reason.

No lol. Actually I'm not bad once I get used to people I think I tend to have a "knowing" mindset. If I really someone is pretty weak at being social I usually push to make them more comfortable. If their not though it usually takes me a bit to "warm up".

The best cure for social anxiety is going to jail not knowing how long you will be there.
