A study at Case Western Reserve University found that
ignoring someone requires a lot of mental energy. The researchers put a
student in a room with a research team member for 4 minutes. Half the students were told to ignore their partner and half were told to talk to them.

Later the researchers gave each student 20 word puzzles to
do. Those who talked in the room were more persistent in their efforts to
solve the puzzles than those who ignored their partners were.

What this means is when you're having a problem with a friend or family
member, it may be better for your health to talk the situation out as
opposed to attempting to ignore the situation.
