Topic #150: See how long you can sit in silence. Before you start,check the clock and guess at how long you can do it for. Then when you’re done: how close was your guess? Surprised? What did you experience while sitting? Was it pleasant or frustrating?
This was the easiest challenge I have had to do. As a programmer I sit in silence for long periods of time. I actually stopped timing myself because a day spent in silence is my cup of tea. The problem arises when the people around me decide that their should be noise.
They assume that my silence somehow needs to be broken by my voicing an answer to the question “Are you alright?”
