Listening is an art! How is it an art? It is an art because it takes an intentional act on the part of the hearer to engage the content within its context to understand what the communicator is truly saying. Just because someone says something does not automatically mean we comprehend. Thus, the listener needs to actively listen in order to hear what is truly being said and why. In fact, it is easier to be thinking about how we are going to respond to what another person is saying rather than listening to hear what is being said. When listening to anything on this site, please strive to listen, think about what is being communicated, and then respond accordingly.
