I am a good listener…
Listening is a strong skill to have
Online, I’m good at smalltalk and listening.
In real life, I do alright at conversations. I’ve been working on getting better at initiating
I’m good at talking with myself.
No, not anymore. I was as a kid before my mental health really started to decline then I lost the ability. I’m better at listening and responding. If I’m in a group of people my lack of conversational abilities isn’t really noticeable because when my mind goes blank I can just let other people talk.
Sorry to all the folks on here I’ve failed to keep up PM convos with, nothing personal at all I just really can’t keep conversations going
me too i mostly just listen
I’m ok at talking small talk. And I’m ok at talking in general but if you talk about something I really like for some reason I have a hard time talking about it.
I have an alter who’s like a total chatterbox though. He never shuts up. I love him.
I’m honestly better at listening. Or giving advice.
I’m pretty good at small talk but can never really go beyond that.
I’m useless at initiating conversations, and not so good at making small talk. If someone starts a conversation with me I’ll respond. Responding in real time isn’t always easy. Sometimes it’s easier to process a response than others. I’m usually better if it’s a subject I’m interested in.
Talking is about listening first. You understand what is coming in and respond to social cues. It’s a learned behavior and the best thing you can do is practice!
Most of the english language is redundant. Meaning is only like 10% of all discourse and the rest is social. It really is. You’d be surprised!
Start with some confidence and listen…you really do need to listen and understand what is going on!
I’m terrible listener and a terrible speaker
You are always making fun of everything
So, do come here often?
When I was hoped up on illegal/legal drugs I was very good at initiating convos. Now, my heart skips a beat every time I walk by some one.
If someone talks with me I am good at responding
I tend to wait for that person to make a move or talk about some stuff.
I’m good at small talk: hi how r u? I’m fine thank you, what about you? And that’s all
I was at computer class. I had to wake up at 7 am for that. First two hours i was “asleep” there. Then i “woke up” and started being suppersocial. But it wasnt me. Its like i was someone else and kept chatting out loud with everybody.
