Apologies if this question seems a bit naive but wanted to get this forum's opinion on educating oneself on certain topics in order to hold better conversations with longer tenure colleagues. As a 22-year-old analyst I'm not super interested in or knowledgeable about luxury cars, cigars, watches, fine liquors, golf etc the list goes on.
Have people faced this issue before? If so what did you do to address it, e.g. should I start stalking watch and car forums?
I definitely don't mean to indicate that people in consulting firms only care about those things-most people are actually pretty down to earth. It would just be nice to contribute to conversations about those topics as well.
