    Do people talk too much these days?

    With cell phone technology, some people seem to be talking non-stop. When not on the phone, they're typing out a message to someone online. It's easy to lose almost a day talking to people in an internet forum. Is it too much? Have people lost the ability to be alone with their thoughts? Did they ever have that ability, or is that just irrational nostalgia? Or is it even possible to talk 'too much'? Maybe talk is just an all-around great thing. Answer as you like.

    Depends on who they are but I have come across some people that scare me. You can try to get off the phone with them for 10 mins and they will always have something else to say.

    Yes, it depends upon to whom they are talking. If two couples are then there talk is a never ending......

    Everyone needs companion. Imagine how lonely a person can be when there is no one to talk with. Of course we should have some sorts of limitation of passing time instead of just indulging ourselves on the phone.

    It will be a matter of time management. Knowing how much time should be spent on every particular thing that needed to be done. So once you have mastered yourself in organisng what are essential and important to do, then there rest of the things will be easy.

    A person talking makes him an open book for all and nowadays if you want to know others you have to show you first. And conversation is nice way to explain who you are.

    Except it due to today’s busy life none has time to talk so people is eager to do this whenever they get chance.

    I think it's great to have a good chat and only wish people would actually speak more rather than send SMS and email messages constantly... Anyway, if anyone ever say's you talk too much here's a link my Hub "YOU TALK TO MUCH - COMEBACK LINES: http://hubpages.com/hub/You-Talk-Too-Much-Comback-Lines

    Some people are compulsive talkers.  They get their mouths going and can't stop.  I've never heard this discussed from a psychological perspective, but I'm sure it's true. 

    Getting lost in our thoughts is becoming a lost art.  I used to do it well, but have not had much success lately, as I am addicted to my Crackberry. 

    Few people know how to really listen though, and I think that number is dropping.

    Tell me about it! I think people are actually scared of being left alone with their thoughts -- maybe coz they will start thinking unpleasant things mostly that happened in their past. I think a lil bit of quiet time is essential for anyone. If not, meditation wouldn't have been so popular wink

    I think that this, "Age of Mass Communication," is both good and bad.

    People need companionship. We are social creatures. We go crazy without interaction with other members of our species. Also, the fact that "global communication" is binging us closer to one another as a species is something that cannot be ignored.

    However, I think that it can become an unhealthy habit. If you spend all day "socializing" online and ignore the real world outside it can be very detrimental not only to your "actual" social life, but your health as well.

    It also annoys the living shit outta me when someone is texting the entire time I'm with them. If you're hanging out with your friends, don't spend the whole time on your phone... it's just plain rude.

    Too many people are afraid of silence. Growing up with the t.v. on in the background, even at dinner, they can't have a moment of quiet and feel the need to fill it with white noise. It's great to be so comfortable with someone that you can sit for ages without saying anything. It would be great to listen to what's going on inside, which many are afraid of I guess. I'm a great advocate of respectful treks into nature, especially under the dome of quiet that is the desert. Meditation works.
