TALKING AS A TEST
By MARGUERITE GASTON
Have you ever thought how many things
a.re told when we are talking? 1 am
not thinking of gossipy tea parties partic
ularly, nor ye* of those mure cherished
hours in which we give each other our
confidences by the fireside. Perhaps it Is
just what is known as general conversa
tion. casual, talk that 1 have in mind.
Most of us do treat, general conversa
tion very casually, both in regard to the
way we listen to and share in it.
Profound thinkers have told 11s that
we are afraid of silence; that only be
tween two perfectly attuned spirits can
silence be beautiful, or ever possible. At
any rate, most of us talk a great deal.
And we labor under the delusion that so
long as the awkward silence is avoided
it doesn’t much matter w’hat we say.
No one remembers. Why, we don't re
member ourselves what it was that
rather pleasant woman talked about the
other day on what would otherwise have
been a tedious railway journey, nor yet
what it was Aunt Susan enlarged upon
last time she paid her formal call.
Yet this is a very superficial way of
looking at it. Every time we speak we re
veal our thoughts, but what if our own
individual manner of thus playing hide
and-seek betrays us?
Directly we look at'the face of a strang
er wre received an impression, consciously
or unconsciously, of his or her general de
meanor of the vivacity of the look, the
mobility of the features.
Then, when we wish to find a more solid
basis for our hastily formed opinion we
are no longer content with the external
view and desire to get into conversation.
To make a person talk is the best way
that has yet been found of ascertaining
what is in his mind. In conversation the
sound of our interlocutor's voice, the flex
ibility of its intonation, the fineness of
its shades are all elements that tend to
confirm or weaken the opinion we have
We are much influenced, also, by the de
gree of attention he gives us, for we are
all moderately certain that our remarks
are w’orth listening to—if not remember
ing; his quickness to grasp our meaning
pleases, even flatters, us; his replies,
which partially anticipate what we were
going to say, prove delightful; by such
various details in the course of conversa
tion we do something more than estimate
the intelligence of the speaker; we de
cide whether we are going to like him or
not. (The reverse process may be easily
After all, it does matter what we say,
doesn't it? Or at least it matters how
wo say it.
And again, in regard to that little mat
ter, profess of the attention we give other
speakers. We are often reminded that
good listeners are rare. They are alsc
wise. How can wre know anything about
human nature, profess to he any sort of
judge of character, if instead of listening
to w’hat is being said to us w’e are plan
ning our own next remark or impressive
speech, or are pondering how’ best we can
bring the conversation round to somf
event or connection the revelation of
which w’e foolishly imagine may cause us
to rise in our companion’s estimation?
If our fellow talker be anything of a
judge, if he ever knows the world he lives
in, how sadly have we let ourselves down
in his eyes! But of course these people
who are guilty of the more serious of
fenses are usually' quite unconscious ol
them, and are not sufficiently sensitive to
notice the degree less of warmth in the
other person’s tone when the reply comes.
They never knew that their talk has be
trayed them, that out of their own mouths
are they condemned.
