yes i do think you can mitigate it somewhat. but i wonder if it is also somewhat about engineer style of thinking.

for example when i’m having a conversation with a friend, let’s say i am telling a story. now interruptions are fairly normal but they drive me up wall. often i lose my thread & the train of thought. then i get mad at the person like they don’t care about what i have to say.

but they do. and conversational interruptions are quite normal. but i struggle with them.
