Listen.



What makes it hard for you to listen,
or to truly hear what someone else is saying?





Selfishness
the first word that comes on my mind and immediately thought of a definition for that word, but can't remember its author;
” A selfish person is one who is completely devoid of any consideration for the selfishness of others.”

  9. siguro kasi the person is so absorbed in his/her own thoughts so he/she's not listening?

    according sa last seminar na na-attendan ko sa maersk:
    during discussion/conversation, we only listen for 17seconds (ata)..
    after nun, we stop listening and our mind will start processing the raw data for information.. *lol*

  14. Listening to the words is not enough. The speaker and the listener should first have a rapport so that the listener can understand what the speaker means to impart. Without this emphatic link, true connection will never be established, and everything will grind into nothing but a one-sided monologue.
