...yeah also a bit undefined for me ^^.
I've just mentioned to alternatives, but more as a example. I wouldn't say that it's like small talk or honesty, but I would defiantly say that to much small talk is blocking honesty. Huh? Why is that?
So maybe I'll start to define what small talk means to me to be able to talk about more or less the same.
What I understand as smalltalk could probably also be understood as easy conversation. Something which is not of a very interest for yourself but using it to interact in a extremely un-confrontational way.
What I wanted to do with the post it to be confrontational. Not for the aim of being confrontational but for though provoking. Words are part of our culture and effecting and forming our culture. We can decide the shape.
....and any time people come together theirs the potential of shaping something great. Most time people don't make use of it. ...and so it just comes to something feeling great through it's process of repeating.
But I also agree that small talk can lead to that. And I guess it's mostly anyway about the motivation standing behind.
