Here's how you can come up with your response for What do you do? 1. Go beyond your title. 2. Think about the problems that only you can solve. 3. Ask your friends and colleagues for input. 4. Flash back to your childhood. 5. Show a little vulnerability. 6. Gather some feedback on your introduction. 7. Blame it on someone else. 8. Resist going back to the same-old intro.

Would you try these for a better introduction on yourself? Do you think this is effective or would you rather stick to your usual way of introducing yourself??

It'll be tricky for me to use tip # 2. I don't want to come out as being very arrogant. I'd end up being unforgettable in a bad way. Probably I'll only use this when I'm introducing myself to someone in another country or culture, definitely not on someone from my country. Everyone here is very timid and shy.

Make friends. This is the foundation. Making genuine connections is nothing more than making friends. You don’t have hidden agendas and constantly push products and talk about yourself with your friends. You put friends first. You listen to them. You hear their problems so you can help in any way you can. Act accordingly.

Add immediate and real value. Meeting people is about making their lives better. Whether that’s by giving them a smile, a new job, your favorite book, a free logo sketch for their new business or anything in between – there is a way to help everyone. See everyone as a chance to add value. Give like crazy, embrace generosity and make others more successful.

#3 is always a good move. People always like somebody who can listen well.

Using an original smart humor depending on the occasion, that's how I introduce myself. If it's business, it'll something from the news or a recent achievement. If it's for play, then it'll be something that is currently trending.

Gathering feedback from people is a great way to get feedback on your introduction. They'll let you know if it's memorable and how you go about with changing it.

A joke or a funny anecdote always makes me remember a person more.

Highlight something that makes you unique like “I grew up in New York, but I’m originally from Taiwan.” That’s quite an icebreaker! It gives you both something to talk about, something they’re at least mildly intrigued by.

When I was younger I would do it with a very sexy attire. It would be either a low cut top or a really skimpy skirt.

Do you have a name that’s unique, or a name that can be spelled 10 different ways? It’s okay to spell it out, tell of its origin or give a short but sweet lesson in pronunciation.

Relate your name back to a character or figure everyone knows. “Hey, my name’s Ross. You know, like the guy from FRIENDS.”

I don't have a unique name but I have a nickname that has an interesting story to it so after saying my name, I add my nickname and the story about it.

I have a friend who introduces himself with a story about his multiple background... something like born with Korean dad, Italian mom in America by a Chinese doctor and raised under Latina nanny.

I would start off by asking a question that relates to my job. I am a UX designer so I would ask someone something like, 'You know how you go onto some websites and you don’t even know which button to click or where to go? Well, I help companies fix that problem.'
