Everybody likes have a say in a conversation at a party, however, when it comes to listening, not many people pay attention. For instance at a party you have both extroverts and introverts. Many extroverts like to talk and make conversation with a group of people, however when somebody else is talking or making conversation during a party, extroverts do not seem to pay attention to what is being talked. Introverts like to discuss and talk about things that interest them. Introvertish individuals do not like to discuss or talk in groups at a party. Furthermore, introverts are better listeners than extroverts. Taking into consideration different types of parties, we come across a larger number of women doing the talking. Well, men talk a lot too, however if you consider numbers at parties, the larger number of talkers is often women.

Different types of Men at Parties

At parties men talk as the party progresses…

The Talking Parrots

Few drinks and a large number of men turn talking parrots and talk about everything under the sun. These guys are driven by the feel-good phase that alcoholic drinks bring about. These guys won’t remember many faces from the party the next day, and certainly not the conversations they had. These guys pretend to listen with rapt attention and nod their heads at different times during a conversation. Alcoholic drinks transform majority of men into talking parrots.

Posers

Another platoon of men at social events is ones who love to exhibit intellect. These guys like to make their point in every conversation. These guys are always on the lookout to make a point. These guys make a point on why a funny moment isn’t funny which is rather strange. These guys listen to conversations to find a loophole and make their point; these guys are not really listening. Posers, that’s all they really are.

The liars

Another group of men at social events are liars. The sole purpose of these men is to spark controversy and in doing so have their cheap thrills. These guys go to any extent to have their share of fun. These guys pass on incorrect information to cause turmoil. These guys are poor listeners and are fake talkers.

Sport Lovers

You come across these mean at every party. These guys discuss the games that are coming up or games that have taken place in the past week. It could be football, NBA, Soccer, Ice Hockey, Rugby, Baseball or any other game. Women accompanying men that discuss sports at parties seem to get rather bored, can’t blame women, when men start talking sports, it’s like they wear blinders. Men belonging to this category love to speak passionately about the sport they love. All they know is sports.

The Gazers

These guys talk with their eyes. They gaze at all the ladies present at the party and it’s only when they talk their gaze shifts. Guys belonging to this category talk less. Women get petrified when guys look at them and don’t blink. The gazer breed of guys are excellent listeners, they listen to an individual talk without shifting their gaze.

Different types of Women At Parties

I, Me, Myself

The majority of women we come across at parties belong to this category. These women look for every opportunity that includes them in a conversation. When they open their mouths the only significant word heard often is “I” These women begin every sentence with “I”. When they are interrupted by a wise soul they feel hurt and move to greener pastures to start sentences with “I” Do these women listen? Are you kidding! No! Their listening skills are as bad as their talking skills.

Recipe Queens

All these women talk about is new recipes. These women share recipes with others but not entirely, they leave out few main ingredients in the dish. Least surprising why a woman cannot better another woman’s signature dish. At parties women belonging to this category like to discuss what should be made for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and also the best snacks to have during the day and at night. They start the conversation with the food and snacks served at the party and from there on they jump from recipe to recipe as other women with similar tastes nod their heads. These women can only take part in conversations about food. The moment a topic other than food is discussed, these women quietly sneak away to find other recipe queens, sad but true.

What’s happening is someone else’s life

You find women at every party that belong to this category. These women seem to have a glow on their face when they learn someone they know closely is going through a bad phase. If the person being discussed is going through a rocky relationship with partner, these women give all the reasons why their girl pal being discussed is in the present situation she is. These women do not like talking about what’s happening in their lives, all they want to know is what’s happening in the lives of people they know. These women are good listeners only because hearing bad things about others makes them feel good about themselves.

Cheers to life

Rumor happy women

A significant number of women between age 25 and 40 belong to this category. These women love to laugh at joke about other’s lives. Their sarcasm is as dark as their hearts. These women like to spread fabricated stories, fake news, and rumors. These women are dimwits in every sense and often seek refuge in lies. Needless, to say their sorry world gets even messier with every rumor.

Parties are about having fun

Women who pay compliments

Few women at parties only pay compliments. These women have a fake smile on their face. After they are done paying a compliment, the smile vanishes instantaneously. These women compliment people at a party and also love to talk. They do not have time to listen to others talk; the only time they listen is when someone pays them a compliment.

      Don't forget the "I'd rather be anywhere else" type. Men or women, these are the people who were dragged in by a friend or spouse and often spend their time sipping a drink or eyeballing the snack table while patiently waiting for their partner to wrap it up and call it a night so they can go home.

      Very interesting! It would be good if individuals know they are according to your categories and then figure out how to mesh with the others. Not a party person, but I guess we meet these people in other places as well. Helpful.

      We sure come across the type you've mentioned. The fear of rejection can wreck havoc in lives. And yes, therapists are doing good business.

      The only group you left out were the "Spectators".

      These people go to a party to watch others for their own entertainment as they look down their noses at them. No one is quite "good enough" or deserving of their time to engage with. They sit/judge on the sidelines.

      Deep down they lack the courage to approach people. Fear of rejection.

      They've convinced themselves that the reason they don't have any friends or a mate is because (they don't want them)! Their ego won't allow them to consider the fact that if people don't approach them they're being rejected! Instead they see themselves as being "above it all".

      Odds are years from now they'll be lying on some therapist's sofa.
