Chapter 4 Activity 5 - Listening Styles Purpose: 1. To identify various listening styles. 2. To evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each style in particular contexts. Instructions: 1. Read each of the following scenarios. 2. Construct a response that represents each of the styles of listening. 3. Consider the consequences of each style by responding to the questions. 1. Your best friend is telling you about his/her concerns about the person he/she has been seeing for two years. They had always planned to marry after college, but now your friend says, “I’m just feeling like we never really dated anyone else seriously. I love Pat, but I wonder if we should see other people while we’re still in college. I don’t think we’ll know if we’re right for each other if we don’t really know anyone else.” advising response-  Fortunately, these situations have a way of working  themselves out.  I would feel bad for you if you made a rash decision and  had regrets.  Your feelings are a serious matter so I think that we need to  talk more about it if you would like and perhaps together we can come up  with a new solution in the process. judging response-  Well, you have been with him forever it's too late now. analyzing response questioning response supportive response prompting response paraphrasing response As a listener, which types of responses do you think would harm your relationship with the person you are listening to? Why? Which response do you think would be best? Why? 2. Two friends have been advised by their physician that they fit the profile of someone at higher than average risk for Hepatitis B. Their health plan won’t pay for the vaccines (about $250). They are considering getting the vaccine, but are concerned about the cost. One says to you, “I know I’m in a high risk group, but I’m not sure there’s much chance of getting it. I haven’t really known anyone who has. What would you do?” advising response- I think that since you have more questions you should  seek the answers.  I am no expert in the medical field and this sounds like  a major decision, would you like to search the internet to find valuable,  reputable resources with me?
