...and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk...
Quite frankly, I can't stand this. I've realized lately that 3 of my friends are like this. These people don't even pause for me to respond to what they are saying. There is no flow of conversation; just being talked at. I end up extremely drained after spending even a couple minutes with them. I think it's because it's too much to take in it once, I tend to pick apart what people say piece by piece, and when it moves too quickly with little thought, it's overwhelming. And it's the overall lack of concern for the other person. I've never gotten even a "How are you?" from someone like this.
Do you know people like this? Do you have the same reaction? Have you found a way to cope with them? I'm starting to think I really shouldn't have them in my life; I don't really benefit from being around them.
Please note: I've known extraverts like this and I've known introverts like this. I don't believe this is a type related thing.
