Hey beautiful people..... Do not forget to write me a feedback and follow if I am any help , I really would appreciate that :) 
“Where there is to be creative action, it is quite beside the point to discuss what we should or should not do in order to be right or good. A mind that is single and sincere is not interested in being good, in conducting relations with other people so as to live up to a rule. Nor, on the other hand, is it interested in being free, in acting perversely just to prove its independence. Its interest is not in itself, but in the people and problems of which it is aware; these are “itself.” It acts, not according to the rules, but according to the circumstances of the moment, and the “well” it wishes to others is not security but liberty.”
I feel that good listening is the ability to provide the proper supportive reaction, whether it is empathy, advice or admiration/condemnation, to fulfill the needs of the communicator. Being empathetic could be a matter of simply sitting down and attentively nodding occasionally, accompanied with an empathetic "Mmm...yeah, I understand." Good listening could also be a matter of addressing an individual's situation by providing advice: "Based on what you've told me, I see a couple options that you could proceed with." Lastly, sometimes we get into a case of ego, split into a dichotomy of admiration or condemnation. When someone hints or even boasts of a personal accomplishment, good listening through admiration may be to flatter somebody's ego, where they need to be heard and then cushioned with lavish compliments. The opposite is also valid, where good listening is a condemnation of a person's actions, when they are wrong and need to be chastised for our actions. We chastise them because they need it; in turn, they respect and appreciate such feedback because they are seeking our honest opinion.
