Do you like to listen?

I myself like to listen, and by the same time learn form others' mistakes. But I'm wandering when I'll start to speak? Because I'm not such a talkative person. What about you?

If You are not a very talkative person, probably You will never change a lot and suddenly start to speak a lot! This does not happen. As for me, I prefer to listen to others, but if I see that they are speaking nonsense, I can shut them up or sipmly excuse myself and leave the place; It is not the aim to listen to whatever the other person is telling to us, but also to follow up his or her conversation and if it does not make any sense- then to say: Hey, stop there! This does not make any sense what You just said. By doing this, You also encourage the other person, that You are not a simple listener, but that you are a listener that follows up to what is being said and that You also participate in it, but accepting, refusing or adding some comments. Listening without speaking is like saying: Trash my mind, I do not mind!! Avoid this in as many situations as You can.

I am good listener and i can not talk too much. I give respect to whom speak with me and I try to understand them. So we can response them easily.

From this point, maybe i'm not a faithful listener! I don't know it's attribute to my situation- always suffering lots of mussy things than my friends that force me to talk while others to listen, or i'm a talktive person actually! But, i really willing to be a listener, whenever my friends want to tell me !

I like listening more so than talking. I've been this way for as long as I can remember. Lately, now that I have more confidence in myself, I seem to have more to say. However, it wasn't always like that, and most of the time I still prefer to listen rather than to be the one talking.
