Discussing other people’s problems, who is dating who and other people’s children form the basis of most of the conversation.

여성들 하루 평균 5시간 수다에 소비

여성들이 하루에 수다에 쓰는 시간은 평균 5시간인 것으로 영국의 한 조사 결과 나타났다.

데일리 메일의 보도에 따르면 여자들이 하루에 수다에 들이는 시간은 298분으로 깨어있는 시간의 약 3분의 1에 해당한다고 한다. 

가장 많이 얘기하는 주제는 다른 사람들의 문제, 누가 누구와 연예하는 지, 그리고 타인들의 자녀 문제이며 그 외 섹스, 쇼핑, TV 연속극 등이라고 연구진들은 밝혔다.

또한 하루 평균 24분 동안 몸무게와, 식사습관, 옷의 크기에 관해 얘기를 한다고 한다.

이번 조사는 “영국의 수다여왕”을 찾기 위한 FirstCape Cafi Collection에서 의뢰해 이루어졌다.
