(bouncy music) - [Female Narrator] Dr. Keith Rollag, "What to Do When You're New: How to Be Comfortable, Confident, and Successful in New Situations." It's happened to you before. You go to some event, a community meetup, a party, a conference, you name it, and find yourself stranded. You don't know any of the other attendees. Your heart begins to pound, your hands go clammy, and you retreat to some inconspicuous corner, pretending to be occupied with your phone. How to break the ice? How to start a conversation? Or maybe you're baffled by yourself. "Why do I act so awkwardly?" you wonder. "I'm not even shy." Well, there are perfectly reasonable answers to such questions, and these Blinks lay them out. You'll learn why people often feel uncomfortable in new situations, and perhaps more importantly, what you can do to be more at ease.
