Gossiping maybe wrongly attributed to women only but it would do well for men to follow suit. And here I am not talking about malicious gossiping but harmless gossiping. Chatting is an essential part of life that helps us develop relationships, learn social skills and resolve conflicts. Some organisations encourage gossiping, of course not of the malicious kind, because they believe it is good for business because it can stimulate creativity. Because this light-hearted gossiping provides a method of getting to know a person in a superficial way before getting into deeper issues. It is also said to 'stimulate the release of endorphins which enhance our mood and sense of pleasure. But, not that kind of gossiping which is mischievous in intent and serves to only harm someone.

I dont like to gossip, I would rather sit and do something productive or even sleep than talk this and that, When I see a group of ladies gossiping I always wonder what do they usually talk, even if I have something to say I feel rather bored or unnecessary to say useless things...

Yes, I like to. It really helps me to discuss different things. Even if I am discussing politics it really helps my emotions. Just having that interaction is really nice.

Gossiping is like torture to me. I can stand a little bit of it but when it's the only menu on the table, I would rather starve. Cheers!!

I gossip. You gossip. We all gossip, I think at least. In some form and some shape, we all take part in the gossip trend. It's not always bad either, like you said. Sometimes it's just harmless bantering. When the gossiping starts to negatively affect the person who's being gossiped about, I think that's the only time it's bad. Good post.

I have always been socially active and always loved to talk. So, I must say that I like and completely enjoy gossiping. But I do think alot before speaking about someone. I like hearing things and what people say about eachother. But I don't like people who simply talk about other people to make themselves appear good and I don't think this kind of gossiping is good as well. Healthy gossips are always better.

No I am not one for gossiping, I just do not like it at all. Where I live is a community that seems to thrive on gossip, mainly malicious though and I long ago stopped mingling with the people that have nothing better to do than gossip about others and cause pain. I have also been the centre of malicious and idle gossip on more than one occasion and whether it is idle or not it can be very hurtful to have things said about me.

In our office, gossiping of employees is very rampant. Every time that there would be a confidential incident that happened, at an instant everybody knows about it and different opinions and comments would be heard. It's very important that you should be careful on what your doing or saying because other people interpret it in a very different way.

i dont do gossip.... here we are simply hurting other without any cause... actually we are ruining that person esspecially girls.. when we gosip so badly that person is losing his/her good impression from other.. it will take yrs to make one say "he/she is good" but one second to say "he/she is bad". so i dont gossip...

Hi mayank007. I like good-natured conversations of any topic. About gossiping, I would more like go into a conversation about someone that is based on facts. I would like it that what I hear and share to people is the plain truth and nothing more. If you add one more fictitious detail to your story, chances are things might get way out of hand when your story is passed on to the next person.

i dont gossip, it is mean and it hurts the gossipee. i dont talk about people behind their back either. and if someone comes to me and asks me a question about someone i never lie but then again i never tell them anything if the person its about has asked me not to tell. when i say i never lie i mean if i am asked a question that only has one answer which is the truth then i tell the truth but if i am asked a question with multiple answers i give the answer that is not hurtful and wont cause me to have betrayed anyone's trust.
