I will admit I have a tendency to interrupt others… men, women, dogs, cats, birds. Not that I’m excusing this rude impolite behavior, but I think I interrupt people because I’m passionate about what I want to say. I find that if I don’t say something right away, I lose my chance and more importantly my train of thought. I recognize this problem and I’ve been taking slow steps to try to minimize my interruption of others. I wonder if people notice it.
But anyways, due to the recent Senate hearings, a number of interesting things are coming out… like the interruption of Kamala Harris when speaking. I find this fascinating because I recently heard about a study that women get interrupted by men more often as a sign of power. And yes, it even happens to the female Supreme Court Justices! Do you remember this? Interruption at it’s “finest.”
