10 Irritating Listening Habits
Do you ever find yourself falling into any of these habits?
1. Interrupting the speaker
2. Not looking at the speaker
3. Rushing the speaker and making him feel that he’s wasting the listener’s time
4. Showing interest in something other than the conversation
5. Getting ahead of the speaker and finishing her thoughts
6. Not responding to the speaker’s requests
7. Saying, “Yes, but…” as if the listener has made up his mind
8. Topping the speaker’s story with “That reminds me…” or “That’s nothing, let me tell you about…”
9. Forgetting what was talked about previously
10. Asking too many questions about details.
Be honest with yourself! Are your listening habits irritating to others? If someone was doing these things to you when you were talking to them would you give them feedback as to how irritating their listening habits are and what they could do about it to improve their listening skills?
