Are You A Good Listener?
I feel that I am a good listener because I am very attentive to what a person or individual has to “say”. I am the type of listener that is supportive to others, analytical to a person situation, and advises on how to handle a situation.
First of all, I feel I am a supportive listener because I have been a support system for individual in my life for a very long time. I have been the one that family and friends come to when they are going through various situations weather it is physical, emotional, and/or financial such as; (shelter, food, clothing, etc). I allow them to learn on me until they can fix their situation but sometime that can become a problem if you don’t apply rules and/or standards.
I am an analytical listener because I want to make sure that I understand exactly what is being conveyed to me is interpreted in the corrected manner. Therefore, I can advise the individual correctly, and the situation is familiar to me. I believe that my experience may be able to help or is helpful to someone.
Lastly, I like to give advice, input to the problem, and/or my suggestion/solution to assist in any way to help resolve the situation. I want the individual or person to know that I am here to help because I care and understand where they are coming from because I may have actually been faced with this situation before and it may be something that I can help them through.
The listening quiz revealed that my listening effectiveness is extremely poor and my score was less than 4 (Always). I am very surprised and sadden about my score and ability to listen effective because I really felt that I am a good listener. I really didn’t want to admit that I agree with what the quiz reveals about me, but deep down in my heart I know that the quiz is somewhat true. I know this because of the conversations in which I have had with my children and friends. My oldest son tells me all the time that I don’t listen and I only hear what I want

    "Many a man would rather you heard his story than granted his request." ~ Phillip Stanhope, The Earl of Chesterfield The greatest gift you will ever give or receive is simply – to listen. The act itself requires patience, on some levels even a bit of endurance, and though a modicum of empathy is always helpful as well, it really very simply comes down to our willingness to put our personal feelings, opinions and beliefs aside, if only to allow someone…

    I always identify myself as a listener. If I do not know how to respond to others, then I should put myself into the listener role. After I studied the chapter, I realized that I am not a good listener. To my understanding, a good listener is better at observing a person’s expressions and weigh his/her words carefully and know how to respond. Unfortunately, I always mess up with the responses, and sometimes I cannot catch the main point from the speaker. There was a time, one of my…

    The Listeners "The Listeners" by Walter Del La Mare is a poem, which has an unexpected ending. I will show how the poet creates mood and atmosphere through imagery, alliteration, rhythm and rhyme. I felt this poem is very strange because it is ghostly and spooky. "The Listeners" is about a "traveller" who comes to an empty house in the forest floor and keeps on knocking on the door asking " I s there anybody there?" but no one answers and he is some how perplexed. This poem is very spooky because…
