A new study confirms that wearing earphones is still the best way to avoid small talk with other people.
The study done by the International Research Institute was done over the last several years.
It found more introverted individuals tended to wear larger headphones to dissuade anyone from talking to them in public.
The study also found that some people even admitted that the headphones aren't connected to a phone, but they still wear them to avoid chit-chat. Have you ever tried this to avoid talking with anyone? Then again, how often are you talking to anyone in the grocery store or while you're on a walk, or to and from a destination? Not often on my end...
