my closest friends in high school nicknamed me the interupter. i’m 32 now and still friends with the same girls and they still call me “the interupter” sometimes. i’ve realized that i interupt because if i don’t say what i want to contribute to the conversation right away… i usually forget what it is that i wanted to say when my turn to talk finally comes around. if i don’t blurt out my thoughts right away my mind has moved on to other things when the socially acceptable time to speak comes around.

i find myself talking over my boss and coworkers all the time. i’m in sales and i talk over prospect clients sometimes too… oops, you’re definitely supposed to let them do the talking. i don’t think it is something that i will ever be able to change, and i’m not sure that i’d want to.
