Listening is a vital role in communicating to others. It's in how you listen that determines the accuracy of your answer and how well you explain your view. To communicate effectively is a very big plus for people especially during interviews as they look for a job, etc.

For me I would say that my communication skill is ZERO. I agree with you that to communicate well you need to listen properly to the 2nd person, but I think the most important think is that you should understand the nature and the mood of the speaker and then communicate with him. What do you say?

I agree with you. I think that listening is much more important than speaking. Sometimes people just need someone to listen to them. If you don't listen, how can you offer any helpful advice?

I think it takes good listeners to hold a conversation also. It also takes communication from the other person you are talking to as well. I have tried to tell my husband this for years. He is finally listening to me when I speak and he is trying very hard to communicate back with me.

yes, I do think its important to listen to what the other person is saying but I think non-verbal communication is very important - the look in a person's eyes, their body language etc helps us to pick up on other people's feelings. The inability to see these things in telephone or online discussions can lead to misinterpretation of the other person's words.
