Some friends are phenomenal storytellers. They are usually extroverts. But in their storytelling process, they forget that they are annoyingly repeating the same words again and again which is sometimes sounds irritating. Loneliness is one of the reasons I’ve noticed in the people I’ve met, and they’re happy to continue the conversation. Another factor may be an excessive need for attention which may also be a result of isolation. The repeater craves connection and is afraid that if they stop talking, the conversation will end soon. The repeater must realize that the conversation will end earlier than they would like; otherwise, repeating themselves to keep the conversation going is merely keeping their listener hostage. It must be a two-way conversation. Due to this habit, the repeater usually tires the listener.
