Too Much Talking

We know it is better to listen, but we are only human. It's easy to fall into the trap of dominating the conversation, to our later regret. Only later do you wonder why the other person in the home didn't go to the party. This comic is from Randall Munroe at xkcd, where you should go to see the hover text punch line.

I learned a long time ago at parties to just say things like Uh huh, Hmmmm.
Really? Well that's cool. And the next time I talk to the host I hear about what an interesting conversationalist I am.
