Both. I enjoy talking but can also be a really great listener too.
i can be both ... whatever is required to keep the conversation going.
Both. I'm a great listener and quite a talker also. I enjoy two way conversations much more than one way!
Definitely a listener, an observer, a writer. I like people who keep talking.
I'm a chatterbox. However, it takes two to have a conversation, so I tend to expect an exchange of thoughts on which to base my chattering. Otherwise, it's the same as talking to myself and since I already know my own feelings on any given topic, I like to hear feedback. The best conversations I've had have been the result of group discussions about subjects of interest to all in attendance. What a way to broaden our perspectives!
I am both. I love to talk but there are times when I am needed as a listener to some. I try to be more of a listener than talker so I can clearly hear and understand what is said to me. If there were such a scale to evenly balance of the two it would be even on both side. I guess if i had to evaluate the difference between being a talker and a listener, I would choose listener it is easier to do
I can be a real talker but that's usually because I'm nervous or excited. I really prefer to listen and observe rather than provide all the conversation. Plus, I'm shy so I can't help but be a listener 90% of the time.
Both, I am generally a listener but will talk when need be. I am here for my friends or family whenever the need someone to talk to or share their burdens with. I am always willing to listen and give my input on a debate or question needed answering.
I was always a listener and old people especially always loved me because I took a real interest in their stories. Since Hp though I guess whether it is audible or not I talk so much! I still love to read my friends writings though so I have not stopped being a listener!
I listen a lot. You know that quote, "Better to be silent and the world think you're a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt?" That's pretty much my motto. It seems when I open my mouth I bore people or I say something really stupid.
I am usually a good listener and if the subject discussed is important to me, I will become a talker.
I've learned to stop and listen to someone because there are subtle clues and gestures that convey more in a message than mere words can.
Sometimes one needs to just be a sounding board and let the other person vent.
It truly depends on the situation. I am both a talker and a listener. Since I study Communication, it is imperative to understand what kind of message, how the message, and discover possible reactions through interpretation, is being delivered. If I must give a message (talk), i must know how to portray that message within the particular matter the interaction is portraying and I must do the same when i receive a message (listen). I think it is imperative to be both. You are either, culturally and/or raised as, to be a talker or a listener; however, it is important to work at your communication skills to become both.
Mostly a listener. I enjoy talking but only in situation where I am completely comfortable.
As a counselor of many years I am definitely a listener...but have been known to say a thing or two cheers

What is being a good listener mean to you?Do you think you really listen to other people, or do you just wait for your chance to say something...I hear people do that a lot!

What would you do when you want and have to stop an old lonely talker?I am a volunteer visitor in hospital. I have some patients who are old and lonely. Every time I talk to them, they keep talking without break for a long time, but I don't have that much time and I feel awkward to stop them.

How can I learn the art of small talk?Long ago, in my 20s, I realized that I cannot do small talk. I really don't know how...serously. In a family video this Thanksgiving, I realized what happens because I can't DO small talk. The whole family talks right over me because they're not...
