I noticed the positive reaction my post on logic received so I'm going to continue them. The next chapter discusses the importance of listening! How can one know what he is disputing if he doesn't listen to the subject! "The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens" Proverbs 12:15 some people who love to listen may have the traits of humility, they will admit without grudge that many people have better ideas than them. He is quite interested in other people's opinions and he is willing to question himself.
So, are you guys ready for your test? Here are your options: A: This person loves to listen. B: That person hates to listen. C: Neither.
1: Gary: I know I'm right, I don't need to listen to you to try to convince me I'm not right!
2: Jerry: This music is way to loud! Please turn it down.
3: Jim: I need to stop listening to my friend Natt. I'm begging to care to much about his opinions. I can make my own decisions!
4 : Patty: I just have to many opinions, and I know I jabber about them to much! I need to listen more and except other people's opinions!
Have you thought about it? The answers are coming!
1: B: he obviously doesn't want to admit he could be wrong. He is just to prideful!
2: C: who wants to waist money on hearing aids at age 15!?!?!?!
3: B: his friend cares about him! He just doesn't want to listen.
4: A: she is trying to be humble and give others a chance to speak their opinions.
There you go guys! See you in my next post;)
