“In fact, talking correlates with happiness. Kristin Vukovic Psychology Today (June 2010) recently cited Matthais Mehl’s study of conversation reported in Psychological Science this March. Over four days, Mehl and his team used unobtrusive recording technology to “eavesdrop” on participants. After correlating the types of conversations with participants’ personality types and levels of happiness, Mehld concludes that happier participants spend 70% more time talking than unhappy participants and that they spend more time having substantial conversations.”
