The day you talked most

Can you remember the day that you talked more than any other day and to more people than any other day?

I just came home from college and thought to myself "i don't think i've ever talked to that many people in one single day before in my life"
I literally counted the people i talked to today and it came to about 30,
thats really amazing for me, if i was to take a guess i'd say my previous record would be about 16/17 people in one day. On an average college day i'd usually only talk to about 7/8 people in total and on a non-college day i'd usually only talk to 2/3 people a day.

What i noticed was the more i talked to other people the more other people (many that have never talked to me before) started talking to me. I get the feeling they probably thought i wasn't approachable before. I'm hoping this wasn't just a freak day and it'll never happen again.

Not sure but we all had to go to mock job interviews so everyone was nervous and standing around waiting together

Back in grade school is when I talked to the most people I think.

shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to.

at most maybe 5-10 at some career fair, but it was not really a friend-friend conversation so I dont really count it, other than that maybe 1-2 maximum, cause I dont know anyone and no one wants to know me.

30 people in one day would be crazy for me. Even at parties with over 60-70 (drunk) people, I wouldn't come close to that. I'm stuck in a comfort zone.

But in the past, my SA wasn't so severe. I can think of a couple days where my confidence was rediculously high. One of those was at a time when I was in the best physical shape of my life. Actually my confidence was high over a few months during that period. The other was a particular day on shrooms. I highly recommend the former over the latter.

Primary/middle school I think is where I most talked to people. Everywhere else I've been I've just been so quiet and only talk when spoken too and even then I sometimes didn't say a string of words, sometimes just yes or no.

Probably in HS I miss it because I like talking to people so many different personalities.

I think 5 is the maximum number of people I'll talk to on any given day.
I've barely talked to 30 people in my entire life, lol!

I am going to completely work on making myself happy.

30 sounds huge. I'd be lucky to make 15, I think. And 3/4 would be most common.

Talking in person, I assume you mean? I might manage to rack up a couple more over msn or something lol.

5-7 is the norm for me, counting relatives. There was one day a few months back when I felt talkative and talked to around 10-12 people I think, which is huge for me.
