Someone I am is waiting for my courage

Information level mismatch

I sometimes talk more than people would like. I would often like other people to talk more. When I talk, I do so knowing that what I say isn't the most important thing ever. I expect some of what I say to be lost. But I figure if I give you the information and you only use 1% of it, then it's still better if I'd said nothing at all. I do censor what I say, but apparently not enough for most normal people. I don't say things because I think you're dumb or inadiquate. I'm just trying to be helpful and prevent miscommunicaiton. I'm not sure this is something I can change about myself.

The biggest problem is that most of the people who don't want me to say as much, tend to not commuicate that to me.

I think it's just a mismatch in how much information people want.
