Why do people like to talk so much?

I personally feel it is very annoying to hear people to blah blah blah all the time and I don't really like to respond to those so I usually just stay back and be quiet. When I socialize with people that I'm familiar with like my friends, family is fine but not people that I don't know, I would feel very weird and uncomfortable to give response and pretend enjoyable... How about you guys? Do you feel alright to socialize with people? Does people talking a lot bother you? Let's share your views! ^_^

I am a chatterbox I am not a gossip, I don't like that. Ilike joining in interesting conversations about a wide variety of topics except gossiping about the neighbours and the like. I join in everywhere, at the hairdressers, on the bus in the shops. If there's a conversation going on it makes no difference whether I know the people or not, I just wait for an opportunity and join in. I have made a lot of friends that way too. After all, what were we given our tongue for if not to talk?

I have heard of my aunt said lawyers actually are quiet people, when they dont need to go to the court, they are just quiet like no mouth.

I am also turned off by people who talk a lot. It doesn't matter so much if they are my family or friends, because I usually do what you do...stand back and listen. I especially hate talking to people on the phone that I am not comfortable talking to. This one time, I was planning a bridal shower for this co-worker of mine. She said she didn't have any friends, and I felt bad for her...so I decided "I" would plan and prepare her bridal shower. Another friend of hers...happend to be the ex-wife of the man that I was interested in...wanted to help me "thow the bidal shower" so she called me at night, and we talked about the party....oh my gosh, this woman could "talk!" I'm more the quiet type, and she pretty much held up the conversation all night...but I kept thinking to myself..."does she ever stop talking?"

Yes, I agree very much, somebody always calls and says nothing like how you doing, how is everything and how's this and that. I'm like I'm perfectly fine, I just don't like talking especially on the phone, I feel wasting time. But she is a somewhat related person to me so... I kinda need to talk to her...

I think it depends on what they talk. I can be quiet when they talk something that I am not interested at all. Also, I can be the so talkative..

I have this fault myself. Last night I met two old friends and just kept talking on and on. They did encourage me and I welcomed the entree and talked more and more. Personally, I like to do that. Especially when others are not talking at all.

Well there are really people who are like that. They just like to share things and express themselves. It's alright to socialize with people but we have to balance everything. Like be good speakers and at the same time, be good listeners too.

It's indeed annoying to know someone who monopolizes the scene when he/she socializes. Although we understand that this is sometimes the way for others to catch the attention of everybody but talking too much gives a negative impression from the hearers. It's irritating and more than often this kind of persons can bring our patience to the lowest level..Above all, such can sometimes prevent a more informative and timely topic to discuss since the time is consumed already by his/her talking.

Yeah, I love socializing and it does not bother me. I just go with the flow of the mood and discussion and let myself be involved. I'm happy with it as long as we're at the right place and time :)

maybe depends on the occasion, if the person who talks so much but has a lot of sense and if I will gain understanding to what that person talks about its's fine with me, but if that person talks about crap and trash talking, I'll back off and try to avoid her/him. I find it easy to socialize with people who is very approaching and is true to themselves. Talking a lot does not bother me as long as the topic is interesting and not gossip!(^_^)

People talk so much because that's their way of expressing themselves.A friend of mine told me that it is better for her to talk a lot than being quiet because according to her the problem that she's going through is like fire that grows fast if she's just their silent..She's just finding a way to atleast relieve the pain or problem she's encountering.. There are a lot of people who talk so much..and I don't know why they need to do so.The only reason I know is like what I have said.They just want to express theirselves..('.')

Usually i'd like to talk with familiar people, but inevitably , i must socialize with strangers, even pretend we are familiar with each other. When this happens, i will try to enjoy these new ffiends, and come uo with some interesting topics,and move on the discussion, but if i find i couldn't invovle in the new group, i just want to be a listener. And maybe from their talks, i can learn something helpful, like how to socialize with strangers who you don't like or you don't kown at all. When you don't want to talk, maybe just listening.

Same to me, I dont really talk that much to stranger... remain quiet is the best way for you to get yourself out of trouble. I serve service to customers all the time and I do talk to different kind of people, but when out side job then I am different... I dont talk as much as I do at work; I can't understand why either or may be I have been talking for so long and I need some quiet or something. but as I know myself better that I dont talk much to someone that I dont know.

i ussualy avoid the people who likes to hear themselves talking. they talk and talk and talk. i have such an friend, she's a good person but when she starts to talk, you can go crazy. i try to meet with her as rare as i can. when she talks, i let my mind go free and just say, from time to time, ok, yes, ans that's what i do.

Hello, it's natural to talk a lot if there's many things to discuss about. However that being said, I somehow found out that opposites sexes mix better. Meaning, a guy conversates better with a girl and vice versa. I don't know how true this is but seeing the people and situations around, it seems pretty true in my opinion. :)

Guys like to talk a lot too but their voice is deep so it doesn't sound so "crazy" and loud. Thanks for sharing! ^_^
