I'm live from the toilet bruh.
There's a few reasons I like typing/writing instead of actually talking. But there are a few downfalls to that. I'll explain.
When something is written, it pretty much forces the person to see what you have to say, with no interruptions.
And they read it until the very end, especially if it's directed towards you.
This is why I dislike vocalizing.
During the midst of a conversation or argument, people get cut off mid-sentence, tempers raise quick due to a persons level of vocalization, and there's not much time to think about what you're going to say next.
Even if you have two people venting to each other. Instead of two people actually listening and caring for the other ones words...
You get one person talking, and the person just waiting for their chance to talk again.
The problem with writing or typing, is the lack of vocal emotion and emphasis.
It's not easy to catch sarcasm in a text or letter. And you can't see the emotion upon someone's face in writing/typing. Which makes it a little harder to feel for the person.
In any case.
Silence is a great weapon.
People do anything to break the awkward silence within a room, even telling their personal life to a complete stranger.
Women are masters at this.
Can't tell you how many times I've gotten the silent treatment then pretty much told her anything just to stop it from happening.
I know I'm not the only one.
