Why should you listen?

You should not only listen, it must be done actively too.

This is because if you don't listen properly, you may miss

significant points in a conversation. It's only when you understand

the message that you can respond in the best way to whatever is

being communicated.

It is true that communication is complete when the encoder of

information receives a feedback from the decoder.

This simply reiterates the fact that if we do not listen

actively, we may miss some salient points of the communication and

end up giving erroneous, incomplete or biased feedbacks to issues

of great importance.
