There are four basic categories of listeners attributed to personality.
#1) Content Listeners (Jack Friday, "Just the facts Mam!")
#2)Time/Action Listeners (time conscious not relationship conscious)
#3)People Oriented Listeners (people oriented and not task oriented)
#4) Entertainment Listeners (Creative--song and dance people)
My dominant charcteristic tends to be an entertainment listener.
