Benefit of Real Conversations

The research says you should skip the small talk:
The happiest subjects spent 70 percent more time talking than the unhappiest sub jects, which suggests that “the mere time a person spends in the presence of others is a good predictor of the person’s level of happi ness,” says co-author Matthias Mehl, a psy chologist at Arizona. The happiest subjects also participated in a third as much small talk and had twice as many in-depth conversations as the most unhappy participants.
Hopefully this blog helps with this.


  1. I'm speechless!

  2. No! This post was supposed to inspire you to speak more, ha ha.


You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
