How refreshing it is to see a non-fiction piece in this challenge! I especially loved the listening test.

You made some very good points and you brought up an important issue--the importance of listening--which was a welcome reminder.

I agree that one can hear and not listen, and that this happens often, but I'd also like to add that sometimes: One can listen, with the intention of perceiving, but still not hear.
Lots of good lessons here, especially learning how to be a good listener. That's pretty much a lost art these days.
