Are You a Good Listener?
If someone you don't like starts talking with you, you:
Listen to them, even if you aren't all that interested in what they have to say
Try to end the conversation quickly
Pretend to listen to them while you're really spacing out
When someone is telling you something important, you:
Nod, smile, and encourage them to continue
Mostly listen, but interject a good bit when you have something to say
Engage them, telling them your opinion as they talk
If someone is telling you something you don't want to hear, you:
Withhold judgment until they are finished
Argue with them about it
Leave so that they are not able to finish
A few days after you have a conversation with someone, you tend to:
Remember all the important details
Remember the general conversation, but maybe not all the details
Remember very little, except what you said
When you're hanging out with someone
They have your full attention
You might check your cellphone occasionally
You are easily distracted
If someone is trying to explain something to you and they're not doing a good job, you:
Say that you don't quite understand, and ask a couple questions
Jump in and explain it back to them, to see if you are right
Just listen and hope that you'll figure it out
The biggest mistake you make in conversations is:
Not speaking up enough
Changing the subject
Interrupting too much
