When I have to look at someone talking and talking and talking I get hypnotised.

It’s easier to not look at someone when they are talking and fiddle around in order to stay focused on what they are saying.

The fiddling helps me concentrate, rather than distracting me from them.

I’m from an ADHD family and all we ever heard (and said) around the house was ‘go ahead..I’m listening..’ while the listener was doing something else. No one just sat and talked and listened at my house, so that concept is really uncomfortable and weird to me!

I feel trapped when I have to do it, especially when sitting down. It’s easier to talk and listen when standing up!

Even better if the other person is a smoker..you get to go outside, stand up, talk, go back inside..moving around..not being stuck in one spot for who knows how long!
