Hi everyone! I've decided to start up a YouTube channel, where I'll share social skills videos. I'm still a beginner at the world of YouTube, but I'm hopeful I can provide some helpful videos. My first video is up now -- it's a 60 second explanation of how you can avoid talking too much. Enjoy, and let me know what you think 🙂
Thanks for posting this Dan! (Just heard your interview on the Practice of the Practice podcast – good stuff!)
OK, first, thank you for this 60-second tip. Loved it!!
But the problem is Talkers just don’t seem to get it.
Please. Tell me.
– Why oh why am I surrounded with people who can talk 55 minutes straight, despite me giving “the signals”?
– Why am I the one getting the wagging finger and called “rude” when I interrupt a conversation 15 minutes in–with no sign of it turning my way?
— Why did my 2 “friends” just leave after a weekend of non-stop talking, where I got 10 minutes in–in total–and the hugest headache?
— Why don’t you Talkers, like bad drivers, admit you got a problem? Yes! YOU! Why don’t you get it?!
Are talkers “egged” on by polite, passive aggressive listeners, like me?
