Small Talk

Small talk is not the same as chit chat, where your motive is to learn a little bit about the person and find a topic to converse on in more depth. Talking about nothing doesn’t have a learning or information gathering motive. It’s purely a social thing in which you connect on a feeling level. From “Socially Curious and Curiously Social” by Michelle G. Winner & Pamela Crooke.
