An Amazing Friend

Leave a comment

I would describe my friend from home to be an effective listener, She is the type of girl who wants eye contact when receiving or talking to someone. She will turn her body to your direction and although she does not realize it she leans very close to you and shows that she is listening by nodding her head.Before she gives any feedback she always waits until one is done talking. Then she ask whether I would like her opinion after making a comments. I would name her as an effective listener because she takes into consideration opposing views. For example, when Milo Yiannopoulos came to give a speech at UC Davis she obviously did not agree with his views, but she knows how Β important it is to learn about opposing viewpoints. She is willing to listen and it does not matter whether you are different or have an opposing viewpoint. She takes your point into consideration she may not agree with you, but she will explain why she disagrees and expresses her viewpoint respectfully.
