#2. You talk too much
No matter how smart a person is, if he dominates a conversation, he will boring and even tiring to the other person. While it’s obvious when someone else talks a lot, it’s not nearly as noticeable when you evaluate your own conversational habits. One of my favorite ways to keep yourself in check and making sure that you don’t talk too much is making sure that you don’t talk for longer than 30 seconds in a row without letting the other person respond.
