TALKING

Remember that ad 'walk when you talk'. Talking is one of the means of communication.Now if you have observed, there are so many ways in which people talk. I am not saying about the language or slang or anything of that sort.
Like, some people are in the habit of saying everything in detail. For example if one wants to say that he met somebody at the shop he will start right from the time he left his home,the way he took, location of the shop,description of the shop, details of the person and so on. Then there are people who do not talk much. They always speak to the point. Nothing more,nothing less. There is another group who believes in talking only. They are not bothered whether somebody is comprehending or even listening. They do not even notice whether the listener is interested. Then you see people who always exaggerate things while talking. If they walk 01 km they will make it 02. If they see a small snake they will make it really big. Then there are others who keeps talking on subjects about which the listener has no idea. They try to show off their knowledge or know how of things. I find people who talk without any reason or purpose the most boring type.Say you are traveling in a public transport. These kind of people will befriend you by starting with asking your destination and so on and then will talk on things about which you are unaware or interested. Another group is there who talks as if all the others are fools. I appreciate their confidence. I do not think the list is complete. However, this much for this post.

I try to understand people by the way they talk, for that is something that speaks volumes about their thought process!

@Rakesh
You are right.One can assess a person to a great extent from the way he talks.

Yeah some people just keep yapping and can give you a headache.. one can learn a lot about ppl and their psyche by the way they talk and the gestures they make while talking .. btw when I walk and talk I get breathless .. :)

Thoughts,words,walking and talking...isn't it all the same.Isn't it all movement?.Thought do move.words makes us move.and when we walk and talk there is chaos..of sounds with and witout meanings..

whether we talk less or more......in either case this talking activity is responsible of a number of relationships that we keep on building in the long run of our life....

@aria
Yes, sometimes I wonder whether these kind of people never get bored of talking.

@MIP
As you said all are movements in one or the other way.When you talk there should be connectivity and continuity of words so that there is some meaning and sense in it....I believe. Thank you for the compliment.

Thanks a lot for visiting my blog and posting a comment. Talking can build as well as destroy relations. It is what you talk, when you talk and where you talk that matters.
Keep visiting...

Very interesting post!!
I guess how and how much or how little somebody talks says a lot about the speaker.
Maybe those who talk without caring if the listener is understanding or interested are lonely people...? Show-offs and Know-alls do the same thing.
One way communication can be very boring for the listener.
