‘Good conversations have lots of doorknobs’
Adam Mastroianni, writing for their Substack newsletter, Experimental History:
It turns out that we like people the best when they respond to us the fastest––so fast (mere milliseconds!) that they must be formulating their reply long before we finish our turn.
Uh-oh. I must not be very well-liked at all in conversations because I’m typically a slow thinker. I like to wait until someone gets it all out and then give a measured response. Something to consider, I suppose.
