As a male in Western society, many of us feel defined by our occupations or our societal roles like father, brother, husband etc . . .
I'm guessing women do this as well when introducing themselves. Some of the most common introductions I've seen are:
a). Hi, my name is .... I am an etcetera major at so and so school.
b). Hi my name is engineerasaurus and I work at Intel as an engineer.
What are some clever and less than boring ways you found to introduce yourself to others that do not include what you do with your time at the moment?
Other common ones I hear are people telling personality quirks about themselves or introducing themselves by their astrological sign. I personally think those are cliche as well.
I have been travelling a lot lately and meeting new people from all over the country and I am tired of giving the same old speech.
Have fun posting some of the cool ways you use to introduce yourself to others. I am just tired of being asked or asking the same question of, hey where are you from and what do you do?
Are there other things that are more cool to use to define ourselves to others?
Thanks guys and sorry if the post isn't clear.
