You're standing in line, and the people in front of you are talking/wondering about a topic you know a lot about. Do you jump into the conversation and answer their question, or do you keep to yourself?
I used to be really socially awkward, but I looked into it and "cured" the social aspect. I'd jump in, even though I'm still pretty awkward. /:
If it's something I feel I know a *whole lot* about, I'm even less inclined to speak. I like to hear outside perspectives & consider it food for thought.
Stand there breathing a huge sigh when they don't know an answer to what I consider is a simple question.
I like meeting strangers. Life is too short.
I would jump in only if I knew A LOT on the topic. Only 4-5 possible topics I'd say.
More like slide in
Inside me I want to jump out and jump in and set people straight but realize politeness is needed her and they didn't not ask me. I mean I could e stepping in trying to fix stupid and that's never good. If rather sit quite and watch the failure.
It's like watching a jerry springer episode. Sorry if I'mean but I rarely see people talking logical situations. If they sound like they have thought it out I May jump in and help question them so they can clarify their position.
But who doesn't love watching someone who is passionate and clearly looking nuts and at the same time being completely wrong or destroy their argument because they hold onto one thing that is crazy
I say jump in, but truly it depends on the situation. It would depend on where we are, how loud they were talking, whether or not it seemed a private conversation, and how valuable my input would actually be.
If it's just information that can't be considered bias like something in my field of work I'll let them know everything
I try *really really* hard to keep my yap shut. Not always successful though. :-/
But then I try to myself up ASAP... unless they pursue the exchange.
I dont want to make things awkward, either they'll reply back with a smile on their face or say who the hell is this eavesdropping creep. So ill take the easy way and say nada
If they seem extremely interested, I would politely jump in. Otherwise, I wouldn't intrude.
I ask nicely if I can help
If I have something helpful to add, I might say I have some info on that. Example, they're wondering when some event is, etc. If they're wondering why the xyz group are such idiots, I stay quiet.
It depends on the topic.
If she's my age and hot, no. If he seems cool or they're old, heck yes.
... Cause I'm married. Ain't no body got time to flirt with danger.
I do if I offer fact but not opinion.
Maybe but my intent is to help not butt in.
I guess butting in and being friendly depends on the person.
I will make a comment if they look somewhat friendly.
I will usually stay out of other peoples conversations unless I am asked for my opinion.
I teach computers and know a lot about woodworking. So I do put my two cents in if i hear confusion.
I might. But I'm often curious to hear their opinions.
Keep to myself. My opinion doesn't matter.
I couldn't agree with this less.
It matters to at least 691 people.
Your opinion matters very much to me.
I don't hesitate to chime in, but I'm guessing that's not a big surprise to anyone that knows me.
As long as you're wearing trousers..... :)
I've never had a dude so infatuated with my pants.. Your starting to make me nervous Mathew.
I'm making you nervous? Rob it's meant to be a joke. I'm sorry that's makes you nervous
You couldn't really make me nervous...
I too was joking..
I do that often actually. Even things I don't really know about, if I'm interested I'll join the convo.
And your new pic is super glam. You're always so classy :)
I'm the same way!
And thank you so much :D
Depends on how uneducated they are about said topic. Usually I try to keep to myself.
I'd they're actually wanting to know something, and I think it would be helpful to inform them, then yes, I would.
Depends on how wrong they are or how long they've been talking. If they go for a while, I'll tend to jump in. If it's a random topic and they're wrapping up, no need to extend it any further.
I've done this before... they stopped, looked at me, ignored me, walked away.
Wow that's awful..
Yes! I love doing that. It's fun to meet new people and hear their take on things
Agreed. Is there a better way to learn about our world? ... Don't think so.
Yeah, I'd have to. Wouldn't be able to help it.
If I'm in a good mood, I'd probably try to join in.
I can't help but start talking to them lol
If they seem friendly and are talking about something I'm familiar with at all, I'll probably join in regardless of if they are wondering anything lol
Do I know these people at all?
Then no unless they're just so factually inaccurate if I don't its worse
Like when people are going to get on the wrong train, I stop them.
