There are many types of talkers in the world and some are annoying but I thought I would share a few with you. I’ve also included ways that you can counteract these types of talkers.
one who speaks to a person at point-blank range (usually with both peoples’ noses less than a foot away from the other) This type of talker always seems to get into the way and gets right up in your face. I’ve dealt with these types of talkers before and there is only one effective way of really dealing with them, this is burping. I know it might seem rude but I have found it is the only way to deal with them. They started it with being so close so I figure it is the only way to fight back.
1) a man with a very high voice 2) a man who gives the impression of being a woman over the telephone This type of talker can be very confusing and can sometimes get you into trouble. When it is in person normally it is ok and you don’t really get into trouble, however, if it is on the phone it can be a little more difficult. There is only one solution I have found and that is to ask for the person’s name but even this is not full proof. You can get into even more trouble if they have a unisex name. If you ask for their name and that still doesn’t help you I would say just hang up the phone and back away, there really isn’t much you can do from here.
1) a person who speaks in a very low (sometimes sub-sonic) voice 2) a woman who speaks in a low, inaudible tone in order to trick somebody into wearing a funny-looking shirt on a nationally televised talk show This one is hard to solve, there really isn’t any way around it. You don’t want to just agree with the person because you might not know what you are agreeing with. You could fake that you are deaf but that isn’t something I would recommend. Your best option is to just walk away or to get someone else to talk to them instead.
The excessive life-sharer
Someone you just met that tells you everything that has happened in their life, even the extremely personal stuff One solution…punch them in the face and run! This is one of the most infuriating of the bunch so the only solution is to punch them in the face and run.
The loud talker
A person who seems to be always yelling or screaming at you There are really only 2 solutions and they are earplugs or maybe the person needs a hug. Make sure you pick the best one for the situation and the person.
A person who asks himself a question then immediately answers that question himself. No so much as annoying but more pointless. I mean if you are going to ask questions give us a chance to answer. What makes it worse is when they talk like this then 3 or 4 questions in they pause for us to answer but we don’t realize that they did this. My solution is to just shrug, if you do this then you won’t have awkward moments where you are supposed to answer but you don’t.
Well, this is the different types of talkers and how you can deal with them.
