Storytelling Is Inherent: People Bond By Telling Stories
We are a story-telling species. Whenever we get together, we start to relate to one another through stories, whether fictional or true. We tell jokes and life stories, and as we get to know and trust, we share our fears, our failures, and our sorrows. Through these stories, if we tell the right people, we pass along an oral account that might have historical relevance a few years down the road.
