Hi, my name is Reka Morvay. I'm a psychologist, and I'm going to talk to you about how to talk to people at a party. How to talk to people at a party really depends on what kind of party it is because if it's just a party where there are five people discussing, you know, Eastern philosophy, then the best way to talk to these people is to join in that conversation. Now, if you're at a party that's a rave party and the music's too loud to really even be able to hear what anybody else is saying, then talking will probably not be of vital importance and will usually be just very short sentences that you scream in the other person's ear and hope that they understand what you're trying to say. So always try to gauge what the environment is because trying to talk about Eastern philosophies at a rave party is not going to be a very successful endeavor, just like the other way around. So try to figure out what the mood is and what kind of the expectation is at the party. And if you blend in to this expectation, if you're able to join what other people are doing, then you will will find that you have no trouble talking to people at a party.
