This inane chitchat feels fake, and we’re left wondering how much is enough to be polite before moving on to the “real” conversation. Generally speaking, we have a tendency to take our time thinking things through and responding.Those long, awkward pauses don’t translate well over the phone.However, your reward is your choice — a walk in the park, a new book, a trip to the movies with friends — whatever floats your boat!Just because a phone call here or there is necessary doesn’t mean the damn thing has to take over your life.
Since the majority of introverts aren’t fond of small talk, this immediately starts the call off on an awkward note.
Introverts rely heavily on observation skills, and being unable to see our conversation partner is extremely frustrating.
We can’t examine their facial expressions to discern their true feelings, or anticipate when they’re about to speak so we can avoid interrupting.
It’s kind of a known thing — I mean, there are entire comics dedicated to the subject. First and foremost, a ringing phone is incredibly intrusive.
Like an alarm clock or crying baby, it demands attention RIGHT NOW!
