“It turns out that your neighbor on the plane/bus/train (or the person sitting at the next table at the coffee shop) is a very, very chatty tourist. Do you try to switch seats, go for a non-committal brief small talk, or make this person your new best friend?”
Well, it depends on what kind of chattiness that person is expressing. I don’t like a certain kind of chatty people. I hope you know what I mean. And I’m not a type of person who easily talks to a total stranger. Even when I really feel I want to talk to someone I don’t know, it’s awfully difficult for me.
