Listening Skills Test

33 questions


I perform another task (e.g. folding laundry, skimming an article for interesting information, cooking, watching TV, etc.) while listening to someone talk about something upsetting to him or her. I daydream while listening to someone express his/her thoughts or ideas. I will stop a speaker in mid-sentence to interject my opinion if I disagree with a statement he/she has made. When listening to a speaker, I make eye contact. I nod my head when in agreement with what a speaker is saying. If I'm not sure whether I've grasped a speaker's point correctly, I summarize my understanding of what he/she has said, to confirm that I've got it right. If a speaker doesn't engage my interest, my mind wanders.
