    5. If that.

    Never the same 5 in one day, though..which is cool.

    Just for the record, how the hell do you manage to talk with only 10 people when you go to work?

    Example of what may happen to me: during the commute (by train) I might meet a group of friends, let's say 5 people, and chat with them. Then, if I'm early, I may catch a coffee and meet say other 3 people I know. Then during work I might talk with say, 10 people; during lunch break another 5-6. Getting off work I might either go cycling with other 2 or 3 friends, or work out, or go out to have a early-evening drink - with a small group of people again. The 30 mark can be easily reached...(and I don't do sales and never will, I don't have a typically chatty personality).

    Aside from work, 0-1 most days.

    I don't really know if work should count, because it's out of your control, but if you include it I'll bump that up to 7 or 8.

    I have no idea how many people I talk to in a day, but now I'm interested in keeping track to get an estimate. I work in a hotel so I bet the number could be higher than I imagined. And yes, I think small talk/passing conversations count since they occur IRL

    All children are "megachilds"...just ask their parents. They will always tell you how great their drooling, pooping child is!

    I am quite content on days where I don't talk to more than a few people (preferably only those who matter).

    I feel sorry for those introverts who work in retail or hospitality by necessity.

    Is that why so many people in hospitality/retail are cranky?

    When I worked in sales management/membership recruitment/retail I spoke to at least a hundred people a day. And I was never visibly cranky or short with customers, even when they were rude. Couldn't say the same for many of my coworkers. Some people just don't have what it takes :P

    This poll frightens me because these days the number of people I speak with everyday is soooooooooooo low. Like count on 1 hand low. :horor: Am I gonna turn into a shut-in axe murderer now?

    I can't stop laughing at your post. I have all these weird images in my head after reading it.
