I never heard So musical a discord, such sweet thunder.

… but, when it isn’t a question of a pack of Spartan hounds tearing a bear to shreds, poor listening skills are more a problem than a theatrical entertainment.

I found this post that chronicles eight common barriers to good listening and suggestions to get past them quite interesting. I will not, like Dante in his Purgatorio, go through them all and explain which ones I am particularly prey to, but I know all too well that I’m not in cleared-to-throw-stones territory.

The list also doesn’t fully capture the mindset differences between speakers noted in BC’s Direct versus Indirect Communication post, which might be counted, if we were in a lumping mood, as a ninth barrier.

It's only fair to share...
