The conversational habits that build better connections

“There is no such thing as conversation,” the novelist and literary critic Rebecca West famously wrote in her collection of stories, The Harsh Voice. “It is an illusion. There are intersecting monologues, that is all.” In her opinion, our own words simply pass over the words of others without any profound communication taking place. 

Who has not been able to empathize with this sentiment at some point in their life? Whether we’re making small talk with a barista, or meeting up with a close friend, we may hope to make a connection, only to leave the conversation feeling that our minds have failed to meet. 

The pandemic has surely heightened our awareness of these sensations. After long periods of isolation, our hunger for social contact is greater than ever – and it is even more disappointing to feel that a void remains between us and others, even when rules of physical distancing have been lifted. 

If this rings true for you, help may be at hand. During the past few years, psychologists studying the art of conversation have identified many of the barriers that stand in the way of a deeper connection, and the ways to remove them. Read on for the top five steps to better conversation.

Aventuras de um garoto nada comum

Hey me chamo Gustavo e aqui compartilho alguns momentos da minha vida. Sou um garoto tranquilo, sem nada a declarar, sempre na minha, talvez eu seja egoísta, de poucos amigos, mas com muita história p'ra contar sou reservado, louco, um pouco tímido e meio paradão, enfim continuo aqui, sentadinho no sofá sendo um garoto chato, preguiçoso e dorminhoco. *Para acesso aos post com senha fale comigo que te direi qual é* |BJS DE LUZ| E-mail: gustavosimthcooper@gmail.com
