Talking nonsense is sometimes easier

by Aaron

Some people are actually better at carrying on conversations that make no sense than those that do.

It’s strange, but true. It’s not always easy telling a story or a joke or just having a conversation about a particular subject. There’s direction and meaning in everything you say. For those who aren’t smooth talkers, that’s a difficult task.

How do they cope? Well, with conversations that have tangents or jump from topic to topic with no particular direction. It has less structure and puts less pressure on the talker to focus on continuous, meaningful conversation.

And that’s not a bad thing. Those conversations can be fun and lead to some interesting topics. At least better than just sitting there and not talking at all :)
