Most of the time, I pick up the talker role. I always talk. I can talk for hours and hours. I took pride in it. The urge of sharing my thoughts, experiences, and memories.
However, trying to understand other's experiences, emotions, taking interest in others' lives pushed me to pick the listener's hat. Listening actively to others helped me to listen to understand rather than to reply. Listening helped me to be attentive and give my full attention to the people whoever I am with.
Listening seemed to be more fun than talking.
