How Do You Stop The URGE to interrupt?
How do you stop the “urge” to interrupt an ongoing situation. I just shared a house on Cape Cod with three other people. They were all absorbed in reading for an hour or so. I became restless and inadvertently kept interrupting the three with questions and comments. They gave me feedback on my lack of restraint and unwillingness to occupy myself. So the next reading time, I had to work hard to restraining the “urge” to interrupt and find something else to do. Without their feedback I was totally aware of how my ADD disinhibited behavior was so annoying.
