disagreeing

curiosity
the ability to express interest in and ask questions about what’s going on in the lives of the people in the conversation

humor

attitude

volume level

maintaining eye contact

smartphone etiquette
being able to prevent your phone from distracting the conversation by beeping or by you constantly using it

joining conversations in progress
Slightly different from interjecting in a conversation circle I am already in. More like.... if I hear a super interesting conversation under way, how do I gracefully join?
