Canadian Psychologist, Albert Bergman, researcher in Perceptual Organization of Sound, suggests that “it is essential for one to make a useful representation of the world from sensory inputs around us. Without perception, an individual will not recognize or have the knowledge of what is going on around them”. This simply means that selective listeners tend to perceive only what they like. Because they perceive only a certain portion of the information so many a times they tend to misunderstand things.
They also seem to be non-cooperative because of the tendency of selective listening. The mind of a selective listener separates out the information which the listener feels is unwanted.
The cause of selective listening roots out of the father’s constant ignorance of listening to what his child says. When this constantly happens, the child also tends to the same with others.
There can be two types of feedbacks, one is a positive and the other might be criticism and suggestions. Positive feedbacks include appreciation and praise which makes us feel glad. Criticisms and suggestions can prove to be very helpful for self-improvement. A selective listener will only listen to the positive feedback provided to him and ignore the criticism and suggestions. Thus they leave no room for improvement.
Select what you want to listen without ignoring the words of your loved ones!
