Today I told my mom I thought there should be classes on how to participate in good small talk, she then gave me some tips on the topic. This evening I saw this quote on a Tumblr and I think it very true.
I know I have a kind of horror for small talk.
“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.” — Susan Cain, Quiet
