of listening and photos..=)

One usually claims that he or she is a good listener. But recently, through my MUET 3, I found out that being a good listener is indeed a tricky task. By this point, I guess you must be questioning why MUET 3(given the situation that you're sitting for MUET)? Well, one of the articles in MUET 3 laa! Everyone of us has a very strong need to have other people hear us.

This need is so strong that when listening is purposely withheld,
self-esteem suffers.

The article mentioned that the need to be a good listener to others is often ignored by people who considered themselves good communicators. Almost everyone is a poor listener. Rereading this article made me realize that in fact, we were trained to talk since we were kids. The quality of communication falls on your skills in expressing yourself that is- talking. But listening? I've heard of classes like speech and drama and even participated when I was in Sri Garden. Classes like that are known to sharpen our skills in speaking. But ever heard of classes that specifically sharpens your listening skills? IDK.

Maybe listening comes so readily that we fail to notice that it too needs certain skills. I remember Tuesdays With Morrie mentioned that in order to be a good listener, you have to pay hundred percent of your attention towards the speaker. But the thing is, do everything the speaker speaks registers even if you're paying hundred percent of attention towards him or her?
