then when everyone is done discussing this person would be causing delays in the forwarding of the discussion or lesson because they apparently did not hear or was not aware that the question they posted has already been answered, discussed and settled! he he What do you think of these people? I mean for critical points in discussion i try to listen and not have divided so i won't make a fool out of myself asking the same questions that was been the hot topic for a long time. ha ha But of course there are just times your ears won't be functioning really well! he he and i have had times i fall victim to this, Have you?

That is what I am always trying to avoid. My dad trained me to be keen in understanding people who talks. When I was younger, my dad would cold me if I do not understand what he is trying to tell me right away. So I have learned to be alert. And now that I am a mom, I think i get irritated with people who just don;t focus on the things I said. Yeah, it gets into my nerves!

He he Hi there Jenny! Its been really nice to see you in my discussions. Thank you so much and i really appreciate it. :D going back to the topic, i understand what you are trying to say. maybe this is the reason why i get irritated with people who do not listen well and then they would throw senseless questions that they probably know the answer to already. Often i hate repeating myself especially if i know i have spoken very clearly.

Exactly! I feel insulted if someone just do not listen attentively.

totally agree on this with you. it is really hard to be speaking and it is offensive if people do not listen and if they are just on their phones, or laptops and then when you are done they would ask the same things over and over. such a waste of time.

But there are some people who even after hearing what other have said they don't want or don't like to take part or share their views.

yeah, actually there are those who are just not interested, there are those that are forced to be interested because it is needed in their work, or at school... and yup some of us do not re-affirm more are just listeners... some however are talkative but they don't listen haha

Yes, there are some people who just join because they have no other choice. That is why, it is important that the speaker must be dynamic and knows how to entertain the audience.

Hmm yes, that is true, speakers should always know when to get the attention of the listeners, sometimes though its just not happening. :D hehe

My work sometimes demand for speakership. I give seminars in company, school and church. Of course in churches, it is free of charge. Always...always someone will ask the same question which had been answer. Well, i just answer it again. There are several reason why it happen...1. That person did not hear it well. 2. There are still something bothering him. 3. It is not too clear for him. If you had been a person who asked the same question, don't worry. It is okey. I also done it before.

Well You must really be a very patient person not to lose patience even if the questions had been answered and asked over and over again. For me, the first two is a bit adjustable to the person who listens, if he is attentive then he should be able to find ways to understand it... If he can't concentrate, then that is another story but that is something that he should address as it is personal. if it is not clear, then i would not mind explaining it to the person, I find it even comforting that someone is listening and wants to clarify my points as i discuss. :D i just hate it when i have to repeat myself every time and all i say are things that have already been discussed.
