Listening is a very valuable skill for anyone to possess. For this assignment, you will assess your own listening skills by taking a quiz, reflecting on your strengths and weaknesses as a listener, choosing 2-3 areas you hope to improve upon and conduct a small experiment from which you evaluate how you have grown as a listener.
First, take the online listening quiz from Psychology Today (http://psychologytoday.tests.psychtests.com/take_test.php?idRegTest=1605 (Links to an external site.)) (it should take you about 15 min.). Please print out results sheet and attach as appendix to paper. Based on the results and material from Ch. 8 of text, assess and discuss what kind of listener you are (mindless, stage hog, insulated versus mindful listener) using examples to support your answer. Identify 2-3 areas you would like to improve as a listener (such as being more mindful, talking less, or prompting more, etc…).
Second, attempt for 3-5 days to “practice” being a better listener based on your assessment. Take notes regarding your progress. Include such things as challenges you encounter (either internally or with those with whom you are communicating with), breakthroughs, insights, etc…You can even ask those around you if they notice a difference.
Finally, discuss the experience of “becoming a better listener”. What did you learn? What observations and insights did you discover? Were there any challenges? How did you or how do you hope to overcome these challenges? Discuss your thoughts on how listening affects you and your relationships with others around you.
