Just because you are a good listener, your ears are not getting hurt.
How true Frank Tyger’s Quote!
If you’re one of those, fortunate to watch any of the news channels (especially English news channels) in India, where participants number can almost reach magic No 10, it won’t take much time to realise how noisy and chaotic it is. (I am not sure why in the first place, so many people are invited to participate, instead of two to three)
✔Here every participant including the anchor talks loudly
✔All talk simultaneously
✔All screaming and Shouting
✔Participants take things personally and even abuse each other
Fortunately, we don’t come across people exchanging physical blows.
The viewer is confused regarding the topic, and not sure why participants are arguing.
The issue on which discussion is happening becomes irrelevant due to digression, everybody going crazy, and the viewer’s Blood Pressure rising at the end and helplessly the viewer moves to the next channel. But sadly the story is similar everywhere.
The only choice one is given is one is free to switch chanel.
Here instead of debate, there is a competition as to whose decibel is strongest.
Maybe it is the way of Civilised Debate sans debate.
This made me think a lot as to why some behave the way they behave.
And I got no answer.
People think I am weird because I talk less.
People think I am indifferent because I listen more.
How about TV channels in your country my friend?
I started wondering whether one has to be a Big Talker or a Good Listener
Ask anybody, whether they are good listeners, invariably they say ‘YES’, contrary to the fact.
Majority Love talking endlessly about themselves (I talk-you Listen to syndrome) till the other becomes restless.
“Some people believe that being the loudest in the room makes them look strong.
It may appear that way to a few uninformed individuals.
What they don’t know is the more they talk, the more information they reveal about themselves (directly and indirectly).
They become an easy target, and it makes them very vulnerable to attacks.
Do not underestimate the power of silence.”
