Sebastiaan shares three tips for dealing with silence in a conversation.
He begins by telling a personal story from two decades ago about approaching a girl on the bus. He shares how he struggled with the awkward silence in this social situation. He describes how this made him cringe, self-conscious, and feel hugely pressured to fill in the silence.
He explains the 7 common reasons why we struggle with silence in a conversation:
2. Fear of awkwardness
3. Pressure to fill in the silence
6. Fear of negative judgment
7. Insecurity of your social skills
He then teaches three quick fixes for dealing with and being at ease with silence.
While these tips can be helpful when you’re already in a social situation, he highlighted that these are just surface-level tips.
He clarifies that it is our belief system that causes discomfort during silence, which can be effectively addressed through tapping.
