Are you a Talker or a Listener?
Do you tend to do most of the Talking in a relationship or in conversation? Or are you more the Listener- the one who is usually found quietly nodding your head over there in the corner? As a Talker, are you sometimes frustrated if people don't seem to get what you are trying to say-don't really 'listen' to your point except to form arguments or responses of their own? As a Listener, do you feel somehow 'unappreciated' because you tend to be more thoughtful than outwardly verbal? Does it frustrate you when your speech gets 'lost' in the flurry of conversations or debates? Do you have any idea how people might develop better 'Talking" or 'Listening' skills? And just for fun, you might want to take the The Introvert/Extrovert Personality Test, the Communication Skills Test or one of the other tests listed Index of 121 Tests. Let us know which test that you took, what the results were and what you learned about yourself that may help you in the future to better communicate your Life Story.

| I Tend To Be The One Talking. Recently Though I Have Attempted... ||Jun 25th. at 12:58:34 am UTC|

I tend to be the one talking. recently though I have attempted (well make that ing, since I am still trying) to be more of a listener. I work closely with people in my business and noticed that I was starting to dominate the client. This is bad of course and now I force myself to listen.
I do have a tendancy to not communicate very well. I think much faster than I speak sometimes, and of course when the brain is running a 1 Ghz, and the mouth is a 486, things get lost. After reading about the talking stick, maybe I should carry one with me. At least it would be a great conversation starter.
| I'm More Of A Listener, And An Introvert... I Think The Word... ||Jun 25th. at 12:44:17 am UTC|

I'm more of a listener, and an introvert... I think the word "recluse" will do me better justice. When I really get into talking about something, I can speak arcanely... or in other words, to the point where only I understand what the hell I'm talking about. But I don't talk much. People flame me for my ideas - Pagans as well as others - and try to bomb my beliefs, and enforce their sugar-coated crack on me. I do listen well, and reveal little. I only wish my poor memory were better.
