Is listening a art?

Post by jufa » Thu Mar 16, 2017 12:09 pm

To this writer listening is not an art. It is, from what I can tell, an activity of living, and, when dealing with the human perspective, what men speak upon is always subjective because of the objectivity of personal bias of that which has been indoctrinated into their human minds of prattling interpreters of idealism. All idealism is an extension of the 'sentient Id,' whose birth child is the human Ego.

A good listener mostly turns out to be an excellent speaker, and discerning of rhetorical prattling.

It's all about whether you care or not. The quality of one's listening, much like the quality of one's reasoning, will depend on the level of valuation one places on the subject at hand.

Now that you've had your say, will you answer the question
How[emphasis on 'how', not about 'about'] is listening an attitude?
