Listen to hear

The fastest way to establish a bond with anyone, particularly with people holding opposing opinions, is to listen to hear, not respond.

If you listen to what is said, you open yourself to learn new perspectives, validate your own views or correct them outrightly.

Being teachable doesn’t always come naturally. It is a practice. And it almost always happens when you listen to what is said for its contents, and not to give a rebuttal.
