Thanks. I sensed there was some worthwhile insight behind your very brief response. And I’m right there with you on those observations. My (now retired) profession involved listening very carefully, noticing very subtle things including who’s talking for whom (self vs. others), reactions (both verbal and non-verbal), sentence structure, word usage, etc. – things that became automatic for me, and that continue to this day, though perhaps it actually gets in the way for me at times, too. I appreciate what you shared very much, and at a very deep level. Thanks for the clarification.
