    Hello When communicating...

    Advertisements
    Poll!

    ETA: I was thinking about this this afternoon. I realized that, on the whole, I am more of a listener. I enjoy hearing what people have to say, how they say it, and observing them.

    I'm pretty much always the listener. I only speak when I have something well thought-out or useful to the discussion at hand, or if the person I'm talking to is actually asking for feedback.

    If it's something I'm really interested in, though, I become a total chatterbox.

    Now that I think about it, I just hate talking.

    Depends on who I'm talking to. There are very few people who can draw the "talker" out of me, but I don't really enjoy big talkers either. I like people with whom I can sit in silence. I'm really good at parallel play. I guess if there must be verbal communication, I prefer it to be fairly equal, but I'm much more likely to let a big talker dominate conversation than I am to take it over myself.

    Depends on who i am talking to honestly. If it is someone i am not particularly comfortable with, ie most people, i prefer to listen. If it is someone i am close with my dh or family i think its a fair share of both maybe leaning towards talking more.

    I would say I'm equal. I do both. Someways one more than the other and it also might be who I'm communicating with and what about. If someone just needs to talk I'm a great listener. If they want my advice/opinion I can do that too.

    I put both equally, because I feel it evens out. Most people I just listen to, but with the people I talk to a lot, I'm kinda chatty.

    I *try* to do both equally. Sometimes I talk too much and sometimes I listen more than talk. It really depends on the topic or my mood
