When was the last time you felt listened to?
What was the other person doing that made you feel that way?
Did the person switch off his/her phone? Look at you? (No, not staring…) Rephrase what you said? Kept silent for the majority of the time?
And finally, what did it make you feel?
It seems that people who digest information through the aural route may have an advantage in this regard. You might want to consider practising? Such as listening to audio materials and taking notes to check for understanding?
