RE: How do you do smalltalk as an HSP?
Often we want to talk deeply, and in complex ways to express the full spectrum of our thoughts. Just, in many situations that’s simply too much for the other person, or we’re too quickly going too far for the “normies”…
How do you deal with that in a good way?
I try to keep it simple, when I know I’m talking to a non-HSP.
Sometimes I find another person in the room who seems to be annoyed by the “on the surface” conversations, and it can be possible to go in a corner, another room or outside the building to have a proper conversation, or simply hanging around without talking much. Finding HSP compagnions in situations like that can be beautiful, as well.
