Listening

I’ve been told on occasion that I am a good listener. Rather than getting caught up in minute details during lectures and conversations, I am always listening for the gist of the argument being made. It’s almost as if I’m scanning a webpage in listening to audio. I make note of anything I am unclear about or did not understand to ask about or look up right after and otherwise listen for the interesting or talking points. At the same time, I mentally cross-reference what I already know on the subject or when I’ve found myself in a similar situation such that I can reply in a comprehensive and appropriately sympathetic manner as needed.
