Talking to Strangers Episode 2

The Book Interrupted women continue their conversation on “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell, exploring topics of biases, first impressions, empty sorrys, shoulds versus coulds, rules, sisters, mothers, sense of self and Legends of the Fall. Discussion Points: Have you met a stranger and had a bias, but when talking to them you found out they were the opposite?  Actions versus words - an empty sorry means nothing/following through on your words First impressions Shoulds versus coulds - do you live your life because you “should” do things? Rules - do you like to follow them? Can you be friends with your sister’s friends? Are you the hardest on yourself? How did becoming a mother change your sense of self? Target marketing and are our phones listening all the time?
