My answers:

1. What makes it easy to talk to someone?
I used to teach about body language and it's so important to have open and welcoming body language in order to encourage people to talk to you. You can see the closed body language of people on public transport in London - London commuters really don't want to talk to anyone LOL!
2. Have you ever had a great conversation with a complete stranger?
I have! Despite the closed body language of people in London if there's a crisis people step in. A few years ago on a trip to London my friends and I were on the receiving end of someone tripping up while holding a cup of soup which ended up all over us! It was amazing how everyone nearby came over and rushed to get tissues and stuff to clean us up - people were really kind and chatty! It's the same after any disasters that have happened - complete strangers chatting away with me and others.
3. Do you like to argue?
Not really - my parents were very artistic with the temperament that goes with that so there were very many arguments in the house and I do try and avoid arguing with anyone. I will, however, stick up for myself and others if I think it's necessary, but I don't argue, I negotiate (and yes, there is a difference).
4. Some people like to talk about things, and some people like to do things. Which are you?
A bit of both I suppose?
5. Who is easier to talk to – men or women?
I'll talk to anyone LOL!! Depends on the person - some women are hard to talk to, and some men are easy to talk to and vice versa....

I so agree with you on No. 3. Because my folks fought so much, I don't like to. I will stand up for myself and that often surprises people, but not for the sake of fighting. I mean, what's the point?

I agree. Some people like arguing for the sake of it and I just find that uncomfortable!

That was my father. He would swap sides just to keep an argument going. I swore I wouldn't be like that. Even loud voices make me nervous these days.
