8 Ways to Talk to Difficult People | Psychology Today

Can you hear me?

Let’s say you’re dealing with someone who just can’t stop talking at you, and has a habit of interrupting you when you try to respond. You can hold up your hand with your index finger (not the middle one) or simply say, “I’m not finished yet; one moment please.” Or deepen your response and share, “I really hadn’t finished and when you interrupt and change the subject, I feel like you’re not interested in what I have to say.” If they are just chomping at the bit, you can listen to them, but you could also share that while you really want to listen to what they are saying, you can’t focus and truly hear them until you can finish what you were saying.
