People Who ‘Click’ Respond Faster to Each Other
This leads to faster response times while talking.
You’ve probably heard someone say, “We just clicked right away”…well…its not just an expression. Science says you can “click” with someone. In a new study, researchers from Dartmouth college found that when two people are on the same page in a conversation, their minds really do “click together” to a certain degree. This leads to faster response times while talking. They analyzed people’s conversations with friends and with strangers…and discovered that, regardless of the people’s relationship, response times are a strong indicator of social connection. There’s about a quarter-of-a-second gap between turns during a conversation. But when people feel like they can finish each other’s sentences, they beat that average gap.
