Steven Paul 07/04/2011 Chapter 8-What’s Up? 1. The difference between hearing and listening is that listening requires concentration and brain use. 2. Effective listening is so hard because many people listen with just one ear and understand just enough to keep the conversation going. 3. It is easy to daydream while listening because your brain can process words faster than a speaker can say them hence filling your brain with daydreams in the down time. 4. The difference between passive and active listening is in active listening your mind is engaged with the speaker and the message. You are engaged in the communication and not just paying enough attention to avoid seeming rude. 5. Two things that can be accomplished to be physically prepared to listen are have your hearing checked and making sure the environment is free of noise and other distractions. 6. It is important to listen in an open, nonjudging way because you won’t be focused on finding contradictions and errors. Instead, you will let the message get through.
