Introducing yourself without saying your title

Introducing yourself without saying your title

I used to try (and fail at) a fun little challenge: When meeting new people, try to go for as long as possible without asking them what they do for work. This short piece describes something similar, equally worth trying: When introducing yourself, say what you do, not what your job title is. Which reminds me of what my website once said about what I do: Putting words in order.
