Are you a good listener..?

How good listener are you..I could give a good exercise if some one gives you a topic how far could you grasp the details and the actual essence that the speaker has to give you. Listening is a basic skill that promotes leadership in any person. Listening is an art that each has to acquire but its not so easy. It takes a lot of concentration to focus on someone else's thought and the retain the same in memory. What do you guys say?

I am a very patient listener. I listen to others with intent and rapt attention. When listening to someone, I try my best to get the essence of the discussions and what the speaker actually wants me to understand. I find, when I do not listen carefully to any listener, things could go hay wire. Listening properly to my near and dear ones have given me lot of understand and knowledge. I am basically a 'learner' so I keep listening to others, instead of telling my own stories. Good discussion.
