Attentive and Listen

{Just A Thought}
Critical listening is not listening with a critical or jaundiced view, rather, it’s the next step in learning where I evaluate and scrutinize all that is being said and figure how much of it holds true in different contexts and how much of it have I truly understood. This is also the time to raise my doubts and ask my questions, once the speaker has finished his/her talk, so as to truly understand what is being said.

To be in a critical listening mode, I have to be attentive and listen to all that the speaker is saying and also try and read between the lines, instead of talking the words on just a literal scale. Make notes if I want, and make sure to raise my hand and ask those questions at the end – I have to be clear on the understanding and comprehension of all I listened to. I can also choose to digress from or argue a point if I disagree about something.
