In general we are all terrible listeners. Usually within a matter of seconds our minds already begin to drift from a 100% focus on what the other person is saying. Not surprising if you think about the millions of wires in the brain, all the information stored there and how many issues are of concern to us at any given moment. The verbal skills that make us such a unique species often serve as one of the barriers to the potential for intimacy that they appear to offer. The process of not listening becomes especially evident if the speaker is saying something critical or raising an unpleasant topic.
