We have two ears and one tongue so that means we are wired to listen more and talk less.
We all want to be listened to. It is a beautiful gift, to be a good listener. It gives a power to your personality and a trust of you from other people around you.
There is nothing more discouraging than talking with a few people and they don’t make eye contact.
People nowadays don’t know how to actively listen to another person. They’ll ask you a question but by the time you answer, they are talking to someone else. No eye contact, no following along, checking their cell phone. ~ Moe Margetts
A lot of people are only quiet while they’re preparing the next thing they want to say. How many times have you asked somebody a question and they don’t answer you as they didn’t even hear the question because they’re were planning what they wanted to say next? ~ Karl X
