Do you know when someone is really listening to you? What are the signs?

I can usually tell by several things when someone is truly listening to me. They make eye-contact, they don't look bored. When they respond, it's in keeping with the conversation. They seldom interrupt. They have a look of interest in their posture and on their face. What tells you if someone is hearing you or not?

Well, same as your signs. These can be called, non-verbal communication, in which the gestures of people are giving out signs with what they are feeling or trying to say. For example, you can tell if a person is lying when you talk to them, they avoid eye contact with you. Usually a simple nod can say that the person you are talking to is listening to you.

Yes these are standard procedures to indentify whether a person is listening to you or not? But let me ask you one think. What do you do to make such people listen to you? I try to ask a question in between to keep them alert and listen to what i am saying..!
