Have any of you had to change a behavior of yours in your interactions with other people in conversation? I have become (due to stress and the challenge of telephone conversations and probably a few other things) very impatient and cut people off. I don't get the body language feedback that one might in person, so that makes it hard to change my behavior. Pointers to behavioral change suggestions welcome, much along the lines of how do you remind yourself to think before you talk.

Sigh, also, apparently my vocabulary is challenging.

Is "conflate" really simply replaced by "combine"? I guess so (outside of discourse about logical fallacies).
