When we meet someone new there is always an urgency to try and figure out something about them. To try and find some common ground. We know if we can do this it will help them (and us) feel more comfortable as we navigate this new social interaction. When having this exchange with someone we typically go right to what they do for a living which seems like a safe entry point. But maybe that's the problem. Maybe we need to raise the stakes.
