These are very good advice tips. Here is a related question regarding not conversing with people: How do you keep a good balance, where you are polite, friendly, and helpful, without seeming too friendly or too nice to the point where one seems like an easy target? Only show kindness and politeness to those whom show it to you?
Some or all of this is going to rely on what you know, so the more that you are outside in the environment the better you are going to be able to tell who to talk too and who to avoid.
Most people in big cities have some place to go, some place to be, they are not out wandering around Downtown Chicago/NY/LA looking for a stranger to talk to. Anyone that tries to stop you on the street can be bad news. I ignore 99% of them. I do not want to be slashed on the face, have acid thrown on me, or be in an all out argument with a person who is schizophrenic or bipolar and is off of their meds.
NOTE: People with mental health issues who care abt their lives take care of themselves. They take their medications regularly, see a DR, and set everyone on ignore too.
It is not a matter of hating anyone, it is a matter of survival.
