User: what is Pseudolisten-

Weegy: The best way to describe the difference between hearing and listening is that: All listening is hearing, but not all hearing is listening. Example 1: My deaf nephew heard what you told me, [ because he can read lips. Or A classmate heard from your email that, you broke-up with your very first friend. He heard (understood) what was said because he was listening. {You may notice that sound is not part of the equation.} Example 2: The couple at the table next to mine were arguing, but I was trying not to pay attention and I don't know what was said. I heard them, but I wasn't listening. ]

define Pseudolistening
Weegy: Pseudo listening is a form of non-listening in which someone only pretends to listen when they really are not. Typical non-listening behavior includes smiling and nodding occasionally, and looking directly at the speaker. [ [ Other non-listening techniques include "stage-hogging" in which the listener changes the conversation on purpose so that the conversation is about him or her.For example, if someone is having a conversation about their work, the non-listener will chime in about something unrelated yet make the conversation the subject of him or her. The non-listener is deliberately trying to tune out what is being said and shows disrespect for the speaker. When the non-listener tunes out someone or changes the topic it?s because they are genuinely not interested in what is being said to them. In my opinion, this type of person just wants to maintain control over the conversation, which, to me is disrespectful. My daughter is a classic example of a pseudo listener because she acts just like her father. They are both the non-listening type. Whenever I tell her father something he automatically tunes me out or worse, talks over me. He has an annoying loud mouth just like his aunt and uncle. It seems just about everyone I have ever met in his family have the same rude, annoying habit of talking over people and tuning them out. They just want to control the conversation and change the topic to something of their liking. lortiz59.hubpages.com/.../comm.. ] ] (More)
