The sign of intelligent listening is the ability to hear out. Yes, it’s not easy, but only in that case can we understand what another person actually wants to say. One starts out with telling things he/she dislikes. One begins thus because before one was never allowed to say such things. May be a person could never get a load off his/her mind. Therefore, every time one begins talking, one starts unburdening his/her mind to share at least something. But nobody let another to do so. So, if you decided to lend an ear, be ready for long listening because another person has much to say.
