Speaking vs Listening
It often appears that we have more to gain by speaking
than by listening. One big advantage of speaking is that
it gives you a chance to control others' thoughts and
actions. Whatever your goal is, the key to success
seems to be the ability to speak well. Another apparent
advantage of speaking is the chance it provides to gain
the admiration, respect, or liking of others. Finally,
talking gives you the chance to release energy in a way
that listening can't. In the same way, you can often
lessen your anger by letting it out verbally.
