A MULTIFACETED GLIMPSE ON APATHETIC LISTENING
(Vice Principal, Dr.Ambedkar College, Mumbai.)
Oral communication is one of the significant methods that play a predominant role in the process of communication. Communication is a two way process, that ineluctably involves speaking and listening. Many a time there is a breakdown in communication. This may be due to poor expression of ideas or poor listening. Even if one of the participants fails to participate in the process of communication, there arises a communication barrier. The success of a communication is firmly moored on intent listening. But people often experience communication gap with their counterparts that stains better relations. And this communication gap mainly occurs due to poor listening. There are different types of listening but apathetic listening extinguishes a message and deflates the zeal and enthusiasm of the speaker. Apathy is also associated to mental illness. The paper aims to expound the cause and effect of apathetic listening with suitable references.
