And claimed that even when people think they hate small talk, they really don’t.
Also, she explained that the audiobook is designed to help introverts and extroverts alike.
The goal in releasing the “The Art of Small Talk” St Clair says is to “help introverts get better at small talk,”
While also helping introverts and extroverts “bridge the gap” between the personalities.
“Whether or not you are somebody who thinks you’re comfortable with small talk, you may be making it more uncomfortable for somebody and you don’t realize that” St Clair explained.
What is Casey Wilson known for?
However, it was Wilson who shared an experience with small talk and explained the connection she felt.
“I’ve had the experience where someone says something to you [and] it’s almost like it was meant to be that you had that conversation,” Wilson shared.
“Jess and I do believe there’s kind of a cosmic, spiritual component to small talk that makes life fun.”
St Clair revealed small talk saved her life.
