Are you a good talker or a good listener? Like to talk or like to listen?

I like more listen, in real i don t like to much to talk, if i don t have anything to say. For me to talk just to talk, is boring, even i try to be nice and make a conversation, if i really don t like this conversation, soon i will give up So if i don t have anything to say, i just listen as much as i can...of course not a silly conversation, just if is something intersting, or somebody need really to be listened.

icesmile . . I love this so To use the words of Indira Ghandi The word "listen" contains the same letters as the word "silent". Interesting isnt it??? We all need to be heard so the listener truly needs to be silent in order to hear. but how many people can really do that...I notice alot with my friends before I am finished with a thought there mouths are already to spew out whatever it is they need to say. . .by that time I have lost my thought. . so from now on I am going to remind he next person that does this what Gandhi said!

Oh my goodness, I totally agree with you icesmile! I am more of a listener too. If I have nothing to say, then I don't say anything. A lot of people talk just because they like to hear themselves speak even when they are speaking foolishness. My friends realize by now that they are the ones who are always talking my ear off lol. It's cool though. I guess I have proven trustworthy since I listen to them rant so much.

i think i am good listener too..in many situations is good to listen carefully before talking or talking everytime...i noticed that many people like much more talking normally they can tell much more than thy want becasue they are attitudes or habits like that..so i think if you listen better you can lso speak better with others!!

Hey, icesmile! It's complicated question. I don't even know, but i think , probably listening for me is better. My friends always are saying that I'm very silent in some discussions (talking stuff :)) I like to talk in the internet. I can express here myself, you know... and i think there aren't any better places like this - myLot! Have a great day! Happy loTTing!
