Listening is an indispensable part of communication and it is different from hearing. Being a good and enduring listener helps you not only solve many problems at work or home, but also to see the world through the eyes of others.

As simple as listening to and acknowledging other people may seem, doing it well, particularly when disagreement arises, takes sincere effort and lots of practice.

I think the best reasons are #3 and #7. Listening helps you understand the problem. Even the smartest person in the world can't solve a problem if they don't really know what the problem is. Awesome post Valentine :)
