People believe listening means you are making eye contact and you are quiet. For the record, most are not quiet. They cut the other person off every time they don’t like what they hear. As for others, they are listening to respond. Still others are listening and comparing what is being said with what they have heard in the past. In either case, they are not listening to understand the speaker. If you notice, few questions are asked. When they are, it is to invalidate what is being communicated.
