It seems to me that the pace of  our lives is picking up and getting faster and faster, and everything is rushing and rushing. We don't have time for this or for that. A lot of things have ended up being the victims of  our fast pace and high tempo society. One of them I'd like you to share your view  is the lost art of listening.

Do you cutoff (interrupt) others' talking?

Do you show any sign of impatience while listening others' talking?

Have you heard what others said?

How important is the listening in the relationship?

How to improve our listening skills?

We are listening ...:)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have rephrased the question from "Are you a good listener?" to "What is your definition of a good listener?"

Hmmm, as far as I know,  given very limited information

you respond well ...

to be more specific, you reply others'  postings accordingly.

As to a good listener, what have  your friends said to you? And what is your own view?

Sat down with friends,I used to listen to their joy,their happiness,their problems,'cause they are somehow called the own boss.I would never interupt them when they talked about the things,I would give their my own idears or suggestions after the conversation,or even share with each others.Each chat is promotive and
constructive ..

Success only favors those who persist and don't give up.

Hmmm, How would you react if somebody cuts you off (while you are talking)?
