So, what is conversation really for or one of the main reasons?
I say conversation is for assessing. Assessing the sincerity of the person and the accuracy that they report any information. That is, also assessing ourselves and our own information during this process. Of course it should be enjoyable and it should kill time but I believe we were born to assess.
As long as assessing is an open ended idea we can go from one assessment to the next always improving……maybe.
