Self Reflections ? Do we listen to understand or to reply? WHY DO WE LISTEN? A……. Giving counsel and solutions to problems. P……. Digging for more questions to arrive to something in your mind I…….. Explaining motives and behaviors E……. Judging and either agreeing or disagreeing. Most of the problems result from lack of good listening. Please share your opinion.

Most people just look like they are listening but are actually just waiting for the other person to finish so they can talk. Those who really care give the other person their full attention and even eye contact. Listening is respecting the other person enough to actually hear them.

Hi, celticeagle: Art of listening is the science such as speech and science debates. To give the opportunity for the speaker to listen to him, makes understanding and get the idea more easily. As you say listening, is respecting the other person enough to actually hear them.

I don't think the art of listening has much to do with science debates. It does give the opportunity for the listener to hear the speaker and understand the idea more easily. And yes, respecting the other person enough to actually hear them.

. I listen because it is part of my job. To my friends I listen because I am interested in their stories. They make me happy or sad, but listening to them make ma a part of their lives. For family, it is necessary to listen because of their every day life. I don't just listen to judge or make comments. I listen to be enlightened, to have knowledge, to be I informed and to be part of the story.

Hi, leateagee: Listening is something important and necessary in our lives, and if good listening is essential for psychiatrists, it is necessary and a duty of parents towards their children, the problem of families these days, is to issue commands from parents to children and not giving them the opportunity to tell their problems and listen to them. To act in such a way boys lose self-confidence and get lost their time in life in spite of the presence alongside them.

we need to learn this skill. If we master it we will have less arguments.

Yes, i agree with you. A lots of arguments, result from a lack of understanding, and often a lack of understanding results from the non-good listening.

The art of listening... something very few people have, just like the art of observing. If people actually listened and observed, they would realize how simple things actually are. And how complicated their lives really truly are...

Yeah, there are a lot of reasons why do we listen to the one we're speaking to. I guess the reason depends on the situation. Sometimes I listen so that I know what to answer if I am asked questions. Sometimes I listen in order to get information and to learn. The problem is, if your listener is not really listening to what you're saying and you already said a lot. We'll have to repeat what we've said again. It's good to be a good listener. Happy mylotting.

It's like reading and understanding. I prefer to listen yet understanding that in the way I can easily know what he/she is talking about and to be constructive in criticism it involves the different senses when listing at the same time understanding any topics being discuss it compliments both parties to have exchange of thoughts at the same time learning at its core and giving value to the speaker

We need tolisten if we want to understand others speech. But there are a lot of poeple that only listen to please the speaker. And there are other kind of people that really do not understand the meaning of listening and cut people while they are speaking. The best one will be we are listening to understand, so we can give our own opinion cleverly or we can obey the thing we must do.

I also like listening to others. When they tell me something, I try to process it, figure out what happened, how they feel about it. That's important to understand not only the message, but, to understand what they expect us to reply. If I tell something to someone and I see he didn't understand how I feel about it, or what exactly I have told, I will instantly notice in his respond. I will explain what I meant, I will tell "I'm telling you..." When I see people are not good listeners, I can make my message simple and short, making them ask questions about it and I answer to them. It enforces them to think about what I say.

im more of a listeneran a talker. I give advise and do comment afterwards but its very seldom. Of course, i always would like to know if its something serious or what. So ill know how to respond even if i dont talk that much. When i want to share something personal, may it be sad or happy thoughts, its fine with me if they dont reply. In fact, i just want them to listen and hug me or laugh with me afterwards. I feel more connected that way.

Hi, theMARKER: I agree with you, Good listening be a result of which a good understanding and then respond and love between the interlocutors.

I listen because I am interested in what the other person is saying, I hope that I would be able to learn something from what they are saying, or just laugh at a joke they are telling. I usually try to stay away from debates with people, unless it is a graded harkness in the classroom.

Hi,Kjordo: There is no problem in the debates among the people, as long as there is a good desire to listen to the views of others. Without good listening between the interlocutors be a lack of understanding, and then reach a consensual points. I agree with you to get away from those who argue, and do not want to listen to others. My best regards.

We could be listening because the person speaking is interesting.
