The Yappy/Happy Correlation

A friend of mine just showed me an article about a study of happy vs. unhappy people. Here's the title and lead paragraph:

Happy people have the gift of gab

Happy people tend to talk more than unhappy people, and when they do, it tends to be less small talk and more substance, a new study finds.

So, here's my question. What about people like me who can't shut up (see blog subhead and profile) but never manage to get passed all the gibberish to actually have a substantive conversation?

Are we just loopy on too much oxygen?

(Maybe I don't want you to answer that ...)
