Daily Prompt: Counting Voices

Counting Voices

A lively group discussion, an intimate tête-à-tête, an inner monologue — in your view, when it comes to a good conversation, what’s the ideal number of people?

With everyone glued to their iPhone, do people know how to have a decent verbal conversation with another person? It hard to have a conversation with someone without being interrupted by those cell phone or they glancing at their phone every 3 to 5 minutes.

In my opinion the ideal number of people who make a good conversation is two, that yourself and the other person, or three if there a pet or a baby/little kid. There two important factors that make a conversation great, the personality of the people having the conversation and the topics being discussed.

They must be an open minded and clam individuals.  They can’t be one of those person that blows a circuit in their brain when someone has a different opinion that they totally disagree with. Both individual need to lock up their egos and be open with each other views.  Next is the topics being discussed. First politics and religion is something that shouldn’t be talk about. In my personal experience some people take those topics to seriously. A friend of mine call herself an expert when it came to the immigration issue because she has live the life of being an illegal immigrant and has research and read about it, that in non-academic environment.  Any argument I presented, she always had a counter argument and a counter argument to anything else I said. At the end I learned that she has to high of an ego to accepting people views that don’t agree with hers and the my views are not worthy of responding to because she thinks they are offense and I don’t know what am talking about.
