You know when you’re chatting with someone on IM, and you are in the middle of typing a message, and the other person types something that somehow makes what you are in the process of typing invalid or irrelevant? For example, they say what you were going to say before you say it?
When this happens, do you ever send your message anyways, in effect pretending that you didn’t see their message before you sent yours?
Does anyone know if there is a name for this behavior? Maybe something like selective conversaton reorganization?
