    a) Through more interactions with people; or
    b) By asking the question in the Social Science forum; or
    c) I don't know, I'm an internet geek!

    Not much of a philosophy topic. I'm moving this to GD.

    How old are you?

    The answer will differ whether you're in high school, college, or workforce...

    Are you subtly implying that there's no hope for us grad students?

    Because if so, then you would probably be correct! :rofl:

    step one: talk to real people instead of faceless internet personas

    If you attach another mouth or two and add a few extra ears you could increase your interpersonal skills.

    But to improve your interpersonal skills on the other hand...

    I disagree.

    I'm 24 and I get along with everyone from high school to the older workforce. From druggies to goodie two shoes.

    To improve social skills and have really good social skills, you need more than just practice. You need to be comfortable with yourself and all kinds of other stuff. It's way more complicated than just plain old practice. I see a lot of social people and they suck ass at communicating and are plain old boring. Just because you talk to people everyday, does not mean you'll learn the most effective way of doing things. It takes a lot more work than that. Just like playing hockey, you need to train off the ice, eat healthy and do all kinds of other things to get better at the game. It's not just as simple as playing hockey when there is a game.
