The art of small talk

by The 100 Companies

With the COVID vaccine giving rise to in-person gatherings, people are challenged with re-learning the art of small talk.

During the pandemic, interactions were often restricted to Zoom and FaceTime, limiting how we conversed, silencing facial and body language cues. Topics centered on Netflix and Instapot recipes.

Psychologist Tara Well introduces the concept of social mimicry. It’s challenging to have a meaningful conversation without physical reactions. As we’re talking, we tend to mirror gestures and adapt our voices to our partner’s. While pre-lockdown small talk was usually dreaded, it’s now anticipated. Enjoy in person chats while refreshing your social skills.
