"Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood" - Stephen R. Covey
We often listen with our own experiences in mind and with the intent to reply. Sometimes the planned reply gets in the way of truly listening. I personally, interrupt to often and I am working to listen without feeling a need to reply.
(as I said- I am working on it- not yet mastering it).
