What?

Usually. I become less good if I'm particularly immersed in another task though.

I like to think so, but I know I also have the bad habit of thinking "Well if they're telling me they must want help with a solution!". So fighting against that sometimes gets in the way (cause I know sometimes people just need to vent).
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So just shut up, and bring some water.

I also have Nech's difficulty. If you present me with a problem, my immediate reaction is going to be "MUST SOLVE." I'm working on listening and not trying to fix...

I do tend to remember super obscure (and sometimes awkward) things, so overall I think I'm a good listener.
Bork is too lazy to bother thinking up a witty signature. :polarbear:

Weirdly, I'm a better listener when I wear my glasses. Having more visual stimulus helps me remember more and pay attention, as well as be able to perceive better. So I guess I'm maybe not a good listener since I need the visual input..?
