    Unless asked a question, I don't. Instead I generally ask something about them to kick off a conversation, as most people enjoy talking about themselves and their interests it's the best way to get some rapport going. Besides I don't really like talking about myself, especially with people I've just met.

    For most people I meet... I generally give them information that's about as vague and "useless" as can be.

    I usually describe myself as a grad student. That seems to be enough for most to not ask anymore questions. For the studious and or curious who asks for more. I say "I'm in pharmacology... drug studies" with a little smile at the end. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the conversation tends to end there. Perhaps it's my fault for not knowing more people/having more friends... lol

    I was just trying to figure out what I say, when I introduce myself.....then I sorta reliesed I don't actually introduce myself to strangers much. People latch themselves onto me, and to do the introductions for me. I figured it should be a skill I worked on a bit more, like how to be a good conversationalist (although I have flashes of brillance in that department occasionally).
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    "What's your political attitude?" , "Do you believe in a god?" , "Do you like psychology?"

    I don't tell much about myself, I like being asked
