Sam Bleckley - The Church of Interruption - My Take

Click to see the full article.

I partially disagree with the article, this is my take on the topic.

Behaviour of each person:

  I interrupt you when I understand I expect you to speak briefly
I speak until you interrupt (Church of) Interruption Worst
I speak briefly Best (Church of) Civility

What happens when a person on each row talks to a person on each column:

  Interruption Civility Best Worst
Interruption OK Don’t get interrupted and speak too much. OK Don’t get interrupted and speak too much.
Civility Don’t interrupt and hear too much. OK OK Don’t interrupt and hear too much.
Best OK OK OK OK
Worst Don’t interrupt and hear too much. Don’t get interrupted and speak too much. OK Both speak too much and hear too much.
