List each of the 4 Styles of Listening and paraphrase (put into your own words) the definitions of the four ″styles″ of listening (detailed on pages 102-103 in Chapter 4 of your text). Which of the four styles of listening do you think best describes your typical style of listening (in general)? Give an example of a communication event from your past to illustrate this. Relate one other concept from previous readings to your response. For example, as part of my style of communication during busy days at work, I often use a nonverbal Regulator (a category of Kinesics cues from Chapter 6) by nodding my head up and down quickly in an effort to encourage a swift response (associated with the Time-oriented Listening Style). Not always the best way to listen, but we all make mistakes…even professors of communication! The use of Regulator here would count as my additional concept. To include in your post: Paragraph where you define Listening Style and paraphrase the definitions of the four listening styles. Paragraph where you answer the follow-up question regarding your personal style (with personal example) and in so doing relate one concept from your previous readings to your response. Thoughtful response to two other student posts applying a course concept not covered by that student in their own post in each of your two responses.
