I struggle with that myself. To me, I either sound boring talking about straightforward things or pretentious for talking about something involved. I try not to analyse it too much, and reason that people bore me fairly often, so it's only fair that I'm allowed to bore them too.
And like IceB says, mostly people just want the nudge to talk about themselves anyway and are happy for any excuse.
I love the "looking mysterious" advice. I wish I could pull that off. Perhaps I need to wear more black?
