Conversations are a team game. You can be someone who talks more, especially if you're with a shy person, but even shy people want to feel comfortable voicing their thoughts. If you're talking 80% or more of the time, you're not having a conversation--you're having a monologue. This is even worse if you give the appearance of letting others speak by asking them simple questions just to prompt your next monologue. No one is thankful that you're using up all the air, and the more you talk, the less inclined people will be to share their thoughts.
And now, I will pause to ask for others' opinions on the matter. According to u/BaronSamedys:
Reads like you're giving a monologue about folks that shouldn't monologue. Touché.
Thanks for your thoughts, Baron. Fascinating. Now, moving on...
Let conversations have a natural back-and-forth. And if you think that your friends/family just don't have anything to say and prefer listening to you most of the time, you just don't realize that you've become a dominant monologuer, and your poor friends/family just put up with it at this point.
I got to thinking about this when it comes to al dente pasta. As much as I'm aware of what to look for in a properly cooked piece of pasta -- I much prefer the texture when it's really cooked through. I definitely feel the same way about risotto, which I'm sure would make the Italians of the internet want to collectively slap me...
What bits of culinary savoir faire do you either ignore or intentionally do the opposite of?
