Out of all of the people i’ve ever met and talked to, I can really say that only one really possess the quality of being a real listener was my grandfather. The type of qualities that i would notice that he had, was the amount of question he had when I would talk to him. Every-time I would tell him how my day was in the farm, he would always ask how was the weather was , who was there and the time. He always like to visualize himself in  the places that I was at. Since do to his leg he wouldnt to go out much, so every afternoon he would wait for me and listen to how my day was , and everytime he would visualize himself there. I’ve been shot down plenty of times by my grandfather, regarding some of my business ideas that i introduced to him. It’s not that he doesn’t litensto me, its because he come from a different era and you doesn’t like change, so when it comes to that he doesn’t bother listening to me whatsoever. When we put a person perception and put out what the person is trying to communicate, it can be really difficult to continue the conversation, especially when at the end of the conversation ends with you opinion and then you left with a blank expression.  Author H. Jackson Brown, Jr. expression demonstrates a really good example on how it’s important to really get to talk and communicate with people, it all about who you know and they know, I like to by that saying since I use it in my everyday life
