On not talking

You don’t seem to have a problem talking for an extended period of time, even if you’re just engaging in small talk. This means you have confidence and conversational skills, which are both great to have.

But reservation and the ability to listen are valuable skills, too. Every time you decide to pause your speech and hear what others have to say, your counterpart in conversation feels listened to and you can better respond to what they said. Listen more before you try to own the conversation by dominating it with your views.
