Resolved Question

Why do some people only talk about themselves?

What is the scientific/psycological explanation of this? Some people can ramble endlessly about one thin: themselves and their 'stuff'. WHY?? Don't they realise, or can't someone tell them they are frikkin' irritating the hell out of everyone????

CB - that is the REASON why they are lonely!

Francois - I don't think they will even get the hint! Maybe they will just be grateful for another opprtunity to continue talking....sigh...

I think if I start training now in my snow shoes I can win the powerwalk marathon. Maybe I should invite the SABC to do a reality show about my training. They can follow me with cameras.

I had a friend like that, needless to say, our friendship no longer exists. It is SOOOOOO FRUSTRATING!! I think they dont realise how irritated you get cause they are anyways so full of themselves!! I cant take it when people are like that, cause what do they anyways care about you??? They just worried about themselves. I think people like that are very lonely, and stay that way for a looooooong time!

It is people who have a lack of communication skills. The live in a very small world. Next time interup and say. "Now enough about you, tell me about you" It pisses them off immediately and you will lost a friend (who has not been a friend) who will feel embarressed and think about it seriously.

They are full of themselves & try to make you feel less important in a conversation. If you say something about yourself they won’t respond but continue about themselves. They don’t even ask about you. Everything is about them according to them. These are lonely people or jealous people who always try to bring other people’s self esteems down. They themselves have low self esteem so they try to lift themselves by making you think that they are better than you

Talkers have a great need to control & dominate a situation through constantly talking. When they have the spotlight, the environment & atmosphere is up to them and in their control. They also have a great need to get attention and haven't yet learned the fine art of conversation. They are stuck on talking at you. They don't know when it is their turn to be quiet and allow another to speak

THE ONLY TIME I CAN HAVE AN INTELLIGENT CONVERSATION IS WHEN I TALK TO MYSELF. BUT THE PROBLEMS COME WHEN I ASK MYSELF A QUESTION AND THEN GIVE A WRONG ANSWER.
