3 tops for me.

I marvel how some people simply refuse to let you convey a thought.

Two within a Minute or so, but that could be more or less depending on the who and what of the conversation.

Seems it’s not as important to make my point as it used to be.

If I’m instructing or teaching I have even less tolerance for interruption, and will kindly* ask to at least wait until I finish a sentence, or raise your hand, so I can choose when to interrupt the information flow.

* generally means no physical violence ensues. “o)

I’m probably pursue my point a bit more doggedly. After 2 I’ll wait them out and then proceed with my point(s).

It’s apparent that these folks aren’t listening to you any ways. They’re too involved in their own thoughts to hear yours. So there comes a point where I let it (and them) go.

It all depends on who it is and the situation. If it’s a casual or glancing situation, I’ll let it go sooner. Maybe even ignore it right out of the gate. It’s a quick read of the person and the moment.

Three, usually followed by a "could you shut the ___ up?".

During casual conversation, after a second interruption, I give up. I've bailed on comments many times because of this. I generally stop participating in a conversation with someone who keeps interrupting. If you don't "feed" a conversation from your end, it just dies a painful death, which is the desired effect in this case.

If I'm in a debate, I'll ask once to let me finish my point. If they continue to interrupt, I'll just tell them that they clearly aren't interested in hearing my perspective and, again, just stop participating or walk away.

I love a good back and forth discussion, which can be very enlightening. I cannot stand people who just want to hear themselves talk or are in "don't confuse me with the facts, I've already made up my mind" mode.

"Yes, but.."

When a potential client says that to my wife, it's a stock indicator that they

1. aren't paying attention to the professional advice they're paying her to give them and so..

2... will be PITA if she takes them on as clients

I have wondered if this is a result of common courtesy having become a thing of the past, or is it simply that my being over 60 now makes me the old guy who’s views and opinions are irrelevant. Either way, I waste no time or energy trying to make a point with such people, I just quit participating in the exchange

I have a friend, a nice enough guy but a bit of a spazz. If he's got something on his mind and you're talking, he looks like a four year old who's gotta pee, ushering your dialog to a quick conclusion by going "uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh". You could be telling him you won the mega millions and he'll still try shutting you down. I try keeping my exchanges to one liners with him.

One of the privileges of getting old is you have the right to just walk away.

Some people are manics, and they have pressure of speech, and ideas. This is a small percentage of people, but this is sometimes the issue. These people couldn't shut up to save their life, and you will never be able to finish a thought with them. They're probably catching about every other word when they are listening.

Some people get ideas while the other is talking, and know they won't remember their new question if they don't get it out by interrupting you, or they can't listen to your whole dialog because it's literally TMI for them.

People process information differently. Some people process information in high detail. Other people's brains get bogged down with that high a level of detail.

It's sort of a perfect storm when the opposites meet to discuss ideas.

Part of the equation is visualization of ideas, and how we describe them with speech.

I think this is one of the biggest reasons why we hit it off with some people, and other people annoy the holy hell out of us.

Some high detail people can keep it interesting, while other high detail people are boring, and come off as long winded.

Naturally, this ties into the fundamental types of learners. How people learn and process information, has everything to do with how they relay information and communicate.

When you're talking most people aren't listening anyway, They're thinking about what they're going to say next. That's why they can reply so quickly.

When I'm interrupted I wait till the topic has completely changed, then bring it back up.

People now listen when I talk

How much of this is just plain-ole narcissism? It appears that, in the “me” era of rampant self-promotion on social media, narcissism is much more prevalent than in generations past.

How can we be engaging when our favorite tropic is self?

It's good to know this happens to others and not just me (misery loves company). It seems I'm a magnet for people who tend to cut me off, and I'm NOT a verbose person at all.

As I've aged, I have less tolerance and will say, "Can I finish my sentence?"

A lot of people just get really excited when the rare idea does pop into their head.

Some of us are so good at original ideas and concepts that we drift off from most conversations in like 5 seconds “o)

As they get older we limit our conversations only too Piers and the waves that crash into them. “o)

Depends on the person. Good friend? They can interrupt. Eventually I'll just start doing the same to them and make a joke of it.

Some person I don't know? Depends on the circumstances.

Someone I don't really enjoy conversing with?

Once.
