Hearing is automatic, involuntary
Listening is learned, voluntary.
Active listening is a conscious effort to focus
on what you hear
The ability to hear, understand, analyze,
respect, and appropriately respond to the
meaning of another person’s spoken and
nonverbal messages.

Listening with a purpose
◦ What is the situation – why do I need to listen?
 Class, Relationships, Entertainment, Worship, etc

Listening objectively
◦ Do I have an open mind?
 Not interrupting someone you disagree with before
they finish their point.

Listening constructively
◦ How can this help me?
 My life, educations, career, finances, happiness, etc.

Action-oriented listeners
◦
◦
◦
◦

Want information to be quick and concise.
Dislike “fluff” and don’t like to waste time.
Become frustrated when information is not orderly.
Quickly dismiss “ramblers.”
Time-oriented listeners
◦ Want information in brief, concise meetings.
◦ Consumed with how much time is taken to convey a
message.
◦ Set time limits for listening (communicating in
general).
◦ Will ask people to “move the message along.”

People-oriented listeners
◦ View listening as a chance to connect with others.
◦ Enjoy listening to people so that relationships can be built.
◦ Become emotionally involved with the person
communicating.

Content-oriented listeners
◦ Enjoy an intellectual challenge.
◦ Like to listen to technical information, facts, and evidence.
◦ Enjoy complex information that must be deciphered and
filtered.
◦ Carefully evaluate information and facts before forming an
opinion.
◦ Enjoy asking questions.
◦ Great team members for “trivia night”

Prejudging information or speaker
◦ Automatically shutting out what is being said.
◦ Mentally arguing with the speaker about information.
◦ Making decisions about information without
understanding implications or consequences.

Talking
◦ Interrupting the speaker
◦ Thinking of your response while the speaker is speaking.

Becoming too emotional
◦ Focusing on own emotions rather than message.
◦ Over reacting, jumping to conclusions.
◦ Looking for underlying or hidden message/agenda.

Listen for numbers
◦ “There are ten steps to…”

Listen for key words
◦ “The characteristics of a ____ include…”

Listen for transition words
◦ “For example…”
◦ “In contrast…”
◦ “Therefore…”






You become an active part of listening
process
You create a history of course content
You have written criteria to follow
You create a visual aid for material
Studying becomes easier
You retain more information and have
higher grades than non-note takers

Physically AND mentally attend class

Come to class prepared

Bring your textbook

Ask questions
◦ Don’t just show up and tune out, be ready to listen, take
notes, question, and interpret.
◦ Understand (to the best of your ability) the material
before you come to class. Do your reading, homework,
etc. Bring pens, paper, highlighters, etc.
◦ Faculty often teach directly from the text, highlighting
and taking notes on the portions the professor is
covering makes studying much easier and more
effective.
◦ Participate in the discussion, if you don’t understand
something, ask for clarification.
