    It's either stalking or just standing next to them for a while and they tell you EVERYTHING. You wouldn't believe what people tell you just to break silence. You can even tie them up in a basement for better results. Pro strats.

    Or just come up to them and say hi, I guess... That works 80% of the time...

    hmm interesting, do you ever find yourself being that person who spills all the beans? what if you find someone who doesn't talk to talk/is comfortable with the silence?

    what if they call the cops (just kidding, haha)

    You do this magical, rare unicorn-like thing called 'speak' to them. Radical. I know.

    And your awkward inferior Fe asks them questions like:

    Yeah, depends on the mood and the person I'm talking to. But I can talk about myself for hours to someone and after 13 years of seeing each other everyday that person tells me they don't know anything about me... So even if I tell everything, people think I'm joking. I feel like I've heard "You're just so mysterious" more often than "How are you?".

    They won't leave as fast as everyone else, I guess. Or I will leave a lot faster... Because I like to listen. I've got two ears and only one mouth for a reason.

    Start with general questions that can turn into conversation. For example, “Where are you from?” That question can be interpreted in different ways which is fine. Some will tell you alot, some will be more reserved.

    You can always talk about the weather. You may think that’s a cliche or unimaginative but it works. You start those conversations by making a joke about the weather, like sarcasm. “Thought I already showered.” “That sun is cooking a dinner.” “I know where you can get a good tan.”

    If you see someone that needs help or directions, help them immediately. Don’t second guess, just try to be helpful even if you have to lead them to someone else that could help.

    I talk without the official style implemented.

    i listen to see if there's a conversation i can slide into and do it. i admittedly often base my friendships initially on shared interests (especially music). i try not to come on too strong, as i've been told i intimidate potential friends because i have no sense of volume control, so i usually try to make it slick, like "accidentally" overhearing they like the band i do, etc.

    like i said similar interests catch my eye or if their personality and vibe is interesting to me i'll find a way to talk to them.
