Q & A

What does it mean “to actively listen”?

A non-example of active listening would be to multi-task while listening (e.g. surf online, do dishes, run a mental grocery list etc.). Active means you are focused on the individual's voice, body language, choice of words, etc. Scientists have studied how our brains actually sync up when we are actively listening to another's story.
