Some people find the silence between a question and the response to be uncomfortable. They feel if they don’t answer right away it might be perceived as a sign of weakness.
The reality is, the absence of silence is a bigger problem.
While some might feel that silence is weakness, intelligent people realize that silence is a time of thought. If you aren’t thinking, should you even be responding?
If a little bit of silence after a question scares you, it’s a bit of a problem. If you never experience a little bit of silence after a question, you have a big problem
Have a great day!
