Eh, I don't believe it (or at least I don't want to). First of all you have to make a distinction between gossip and mundane details, and you also have to account for the fact that socialites are very adept at pretending to be interested when they aren't.

I prefer hearing about other people's lives to talking about my own. I don't feel that I'm very interesting, so I always feel awkward when talking about myself.

The future is here, and it's about a hundred feet above the Arby's.

I feel bad for not engaging people in conversation, especially when we spend lots of time together. There's just very little interest. I don't even want to talk about my life. Too much work to move those lips.

I used to think I was just self centered but I REALLY don't care about anyone else's life, unless you're a 90 year old granny with some wise life stories please don't tell me about your life cause you will only bore me.
I mean I'm not living it so why should I care?
It's rare that I actually meet anyone remotely interesting anyway.

Nah, I like hearing about other people's lives. Everyone's interesting I just feel sooo awkward asking questions.
