Response to How Much Do You Hate Small Talk?:
I’m an introvert. Unless you have something significant to say, it really counts to just stay silent. Not talking, especially small talk, is a plus with me. I do like conversations… I really do. But I’d rather talk to people who know what they’re talking about. Small talk, I’ve found, is just the way that people who don’t know what they’re talking about use to fill the time and avoid uncomfortable (for them) silences.
