Both.  I like to educate clients about the process.   When dealing with other agents I try to listen.  I found agents had a a bad habit of not listening to one another, talking over each other, etc.

Matt. Good thoughts. I like the idea of affirming and then repeating.  That will help me listen better, I think.

Practice by affirming and repeating the key points in your relationships. It's just a force of habit. Get in the habit of affirming and repeating! Or your money back ;)

Both.  It depends on the circumstances on which is more prevalent.  For example, in real estate, listening is more important but when doing a comedy sketch, talking is more important.

If my comment improves on the existing silence, I talk.

If there is something to learn, I listen.

Sometimes I find I MUST talk to keep someone else from saying something really stupid or hurtful which words they will be unable to remove from the universe.
