Definition:Β  when one person seizes or takes over a conversation that belongs to someone else. Are you one?! Once you spot it you can navigate around it. Identify if you would like to give the floor to the other person because they have a greater need than you. If Β not, then segue back by resuming what you were saying as if the interruption never happened. Another option is to validate what the person just said and bridge it back to your point. Understand that passion is driving this behavior, by empathizing with your conversation companion you will not develop negative feelings and still enjoy the conversation.
