Is it important to you to listen to the opinion of others, even when you disagree?


Often we have discussions with others on 'hot topics', on which there may be much disagreement. Is it possible for you to respectfully listen and allow that person to share their viewpoint?

    Absolutely...listening does not mean we agree. It means we are open to the possibility that we might get a new slant on things thanks for sharing--concise and to the point

    I was going to answer this; however, Theophanes' answer is significantly similar to what I would have mentioned... Well done!

    I love the mud-flinging you see here on HubPages. It's the epitome of immaturity in disagreement, yet it seems to be all some people are capable of.

    Carol you are wonderfully a very good commentor, my comment was not toward you ! That's why you are saying I am listening. If you notice I address your comment is very good.

    But my comment was really directed toward another.

    I apologize.

    Typically I listen to and learn from differing opinions but there are cases where it's a huge bother to do so. I do however, find it hard to listen to people that aren't using facts, experience, or those that refuse to acknowledge common knowledge.

    Threekeys,some people want to win an argument so they don't listen, because of that they lose a listener

    You can not be dogmatic with anyone.

    You lose from the very start your purpose.

    Honey draws bees, vinger draws rejection and a frown ,no gain

    HowtobeS. This is a true statement and I definitely appreciate your point its very important. You show respect. If you do not .people will not listen to you or care about what you have to say because you do not respect opinions or feelings of others

    Then how many people would live behind such a negative and arrogant attitude. You have to listen in order to be listen too ! When you start being like a wall of one side .you miss out on many things, A doctor never stops learning neither should we

    I agree with your comments, but as written there is a time for everthing, if someone bad mouth your parents would you just say nothing, you see this is a spiritual war , not a mere human subject, and people disrespects his name and purpose.
