There are four different listening styles described in the chapter, they are relational, analytical, critical, and task-oriented. I do not believe that any one of these styles describes me completely. I feel that I am a combination of the critical and task orientated style. Critical listeners pick out the important facts of what they hear. They are also able to catch inconsistencies in what people say. Task- orientated listeners just want solid information and quick to the point messages (Beebe, Beebe, & Redmond, 2014).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
