Ever been in a social or business setting and noticed that when certain people talk everyone takes notice and turns to listen? Why is that?
This has happened to me. At first I thought it was because they were the authority on the subject but that rarely turned out to be the case. Then I thought it was because physically they have a stronger commanding voice which has some merit. I also have noticed that more men interrupt others more than women. Maybe it’s the way women are raised, to be considerate of others, to listen. Then I came to the conclusion that the rude person is caught up in their own world where no matter what the subject they rudely interrupt and interject their opinion. I’m speaking generally here.
What to do? Call them on it. In a very stern confident tone point out that someone else is speaking and you’d like to have the person finish their thought. You have nothing to apologize for. It was the person who interrupted who should apologize. The inconsiderate person won’t change their ways until the considerate people start speaking up.
