    Holy crap, people speak to more than 10 people a day? Not just like what customer service people do, but like actually hold a conversation? I can feel myself introverting right now just thinking about it. My numbers are usually 0-2, sometimes 3-5 at the absolute most.

    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    I converse with a large number of people for a living... and as a hobby on the side... I rarely see a person and DON'T chat with them for a while

    it didn't occur to me that so many people DIDN'T strike up conversations as a hobby!

    just interested because some of the views of humanity I encounter on here can seem a bit narrow at times!

    Yeah, I did notice that people's ideas of what people are like are very different from mine. I thought my "sample size" may be a bit larger. I would not be able to count how many people I interact with on a workday with errands plus my normal friends and neighbor interactions. 60 or so maybe. On a non workday with just acquaintances or out and about or on the phone or getting together with friends, about 20. On a rare very introverted day, probably about 3 to 5.

    Edit: I guess I'll say 20-30 on average to include everyone who gets at least a 3 minute conversation. I get pretty chatty- on a workday there has been question as to whether I even stop talking. Sometimes I'll do paperwork while talking/(or listening) to every single person that walks by or other workers around me, and if not, I'm mumbling out loud to myself.

    You're just horny. Admit it.

    Nothing wrong with that btw. Go ahead and talk to me.

    I talk to maybe 10 or more people a day, depending on my mood.

    Not enough, especially lately. This is why I am prone to speculating I could easily be one of those (as seen on TV & Movies) ghosts that is dead already, not realizing it, just floating around.

    I probably average about 5 offline people on nonschool days and about 10 on school days.

    I do talk to people at stores sometimes, but it's not like I go grocery shopping everyday, so the average still remains <10. I didn't think this would be below average since I rarely see people just chatting with strangers at stores, they're just shopping, and it's a similar deal with people at school. I actually start some of the conversations there and sometimes they give me that look of "just leave me alone and let me get back to work." It's funny, even my hypersocial little sister would mark <20 on some non-school days if you didn't count the dozens of people she texts or messages on facebook in the course of an hour. The internet is my social life outside of school so to not count it is pretty much a crime Would this forum also not count because it is sort of like public speaking ?
