Do you have such situations? When you want to transfer knowledge to someone,she/he usually like to interrupt you,and talk about his/her opinions? what's your response.Another situation, when you are listening others' speaking, you have found some different views, what's your react? interrupt him/her or let it go?

Interrupting someone is rude. I try not to do that to someone. I always try to remember the golden rule. If I don't want someone to do it to me then I won't do it to someone else. But unfortunately, there are people who don't care about other people's feelings.

I think it is goog thing that thay being interrupted when you are trying to teach somebody something. That means he or she is focus on what you are saying and want to give you some feedback. It is much easier to get good results to teach something through discussion. As for interrupting somebody else's talking, that should depend on the specific situation. Only interrupt others if it is approriate and necessary.

Yes,you are right.when he or she is focus on what you are saying, if he or she has a problem, he or she need to interrupt you for discussion. But when different people interrupt you ,will you want to explain it?

Honestly I can't stand when someone interrupts me. I can so frustrated with them. I have no problem with interrupting another though and I have been known to do it quite a few times before. Sometimes I just can't help, I'm the type of person that just needs to say whats on my mind even if its the others turn to talk. Pretty hypocrital of me I guess. I should really practice what I preach.
