Know Your Place
Did you ever come away from a party or a gather and have someone say that someone else at the party "thought they were all that!?" The person clearly did not discern or even notice the dynamic of the group and where he/she fit in. We once had a house guest that missed this point by so much that our friends refrained from coming to our home until our guest moved to another location. Yeah, it can be a real turn off if you don't know your place in a conversation. It's all about fit and acceptance when you're talking on the microphone whether it be on the radio, podcast, or vidcast. How do you know? Pay attention to trends. Here is an example. Take a look.
