Do I talk too much?

Pay attention to body language Do people sometimes roll their eyes when you start to talk, or maybe tap their foot impatiently?

Do people begin to phase out when you begin to elaborate on something? Do people simply nod their head and throw out irrelevant “Yeahs” and “Uh-huhs”? Or worse, do people sometimes ignore you completely when you get on a verbal roll, turn the other way and start a conversation with the next person? These are some good indicators of whether you bore people by talking too much. If signs like these are consistent factors in your conversations, you probably talk too much.

Some people just don’t get it.
