I am a good listener. I always have angelic patience for listening ohters, it's related to my introverted character. And I think a good speaker should be a great listener first. But I still hate some persons with too much words. Sometimes when I need their advice, they often analysed the things from A to Z, all stuff I knew. Actually, what they need to do is giving me a simple suggestion in their own opinions.

Yes some people they wont have any stuff inside their head but boast themselves that they knew everything.I hate such kind of people.

I am more of a listener than a speaker. I'm not a good speaker, sometimes I put my words into writing, because I could express more when writing.

Actually I am more of a speaker because I have quite impatience nature of attitude and I am very aggressive and strong. Sometimes I find it very difficult to communicate when one person just want to speak and could not listen to my advises. I have tried to tone down my speeches where after i complete speaking about problems i will listen to my friend feedback before i proceed.So it is important to learn to be good listener in order to get people to hear you when you speak.

You are right.Where there is no listener there is no speaker.Both are interlinked but with certain boundaries.

i think i;m good at both. i will listen to my friends, families problems. and such. then help them comming up with ideas or plans. and me too. i have this one friend who talks and talks and seriosuly says nothing it aggitates me. heh. i guess not everyone can have the power of the tounge. but then come to think about it she doesnt have the power of the ear either
