Active listening - Li Ying

Do you ever find yourself speaking up so soon?

If so, how can you clear your mind to fully listen?
I think that we must first cool down and put everything at the back of our brains before listening to someone carefully.

Do you ever find yourself wanting to jump in because you are eager to share?

How can you channel your excitement into listening and wait for the proper opportunity to share?
We should first listen to the other party if there is any common points in the conversation and then after what he or she has said finished, we could then share our excitement.

What else can you do to prepare for conversations with others?
We should listen to others first what they are saying, then ask relevant questions at the right time.

Can we ask them up front what they are looking for?
It depends on what type of situation or question they are looking for.

How does it make you feel to be cut off in the middle of your thought?
It feels annoying as it makes me lose my trails of thoughts.
