    It's human nature. Most people just wait for a break in a conversation so they have their chance to speak. The time your talking they are just thinking about what they are going to say.

    *I feel (wink) that this is why society spends so much money on counsoling. We pay someone to listen.

    When one gives one an opinion, I think that they are just trying to help. This means that they care. But if they don't what to listen to your opinion, then they just lost a caring person's genuine concern.

    It's their egoist way of validating themselves. But that doesn't make them right most of the time... if they listen.. maybe they will learn something..but most of the time it's not like that... it's sad ..people like that are ignorant by choice.

    Because people are sure of themselves and feel they don't need other people commenting on their live.
