Joan Jerkovich “Your” Life Coach~Confident in Conversation?

Some people think I’m a know-it-all. I’d really like people to be impressed with my knowledge and I get a lot of self-confidence from this. How can I come off interesting in conversation and keep my confidence?

People are pretty quick to spot the “blow hard” in conversation. The person who does a lot of talking but has little to say and what they do say is of questionable truth. Those people usually get tuned out in conversation. When you say people think you’re a know-it-all, I’m going to assume that you do know what you’re talking about and do have a vast knowledge on many different subjects. Personally, I like having conversations with people like you. On occasion, I join a group at our local coffee shop that hosts one Grand Master “blow hard” conversationalist and one know-it-all who really does know a lot about everything and was even a contestant on Jeopardy!. They both get chided for their conversation styles but neither is dissuaded from sharing in the group. Both are confident in who they are. Confidence comes from within, and when you bolster it you will more easily accept the differences you see in yourself and those you see in others.
