mia: in conversation, do you listen, or wait to talk?
vinnie: i have to admit that i wait to talk, but i'm trying harder to listen.
how would you answer that question?
my answer would be just like vinnie's. that's why i think i communicate so much more effectively here. here, i am forced to "listen" to the other person all the way through, consider what they said, and then plod through typing out an answer. i can't interrupt, and it's a lot harder to fit a keyboard in my mouth than a foot. if i say something i shouldn't, i can usually go back and erase it before the other person "hears" it.
