How can i be a good listener?

1 reply

Hello! Good topic for discussion! Your topic calls this wonderful saying to mind.

We have 2 ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
-Epictetus


It's often tempting to prepare a reply while listening instead of completely concentrating on what the interlocutor is saying. I think it's important to break oneself of this habit. In fact, listening is not enough. We need to listen attentively to be able to grasp the message, to begin with.

What are your tips and thoughts, everyone?

(It was edited to insert the word "calls".)
