Find out How Letter ‘e’ is related to your Listening skills!
How do you feel when others ignore, don’t hear, or don’t understand what you are trying to communicate? Why do you think they do so?
Have you ever thought how others feel when you ignore, don’t hear, or don’t understand what they try to communicate to you? Why do you do so?
Do you have answers to the above questions? Have they made you think? Did you know that you can find the answers to all the above questions in your handwriting?
Listening to understand, and listening for just the sake of it, are two different things.
One stage of listening is where you give the impression that you are listening, but in reality you are not.
The other one is active listening, when you listen to the other person to get a full sense of what they are trying to communicate and understand them, and not just to give the impression that you are listening.
We all know phrases like ‘open ears’ and ‘closed ears’, and what it means. It is exactly that in Graphology, and through the handwriting, it can be easily identified whether a person is a good listener or not.
The letter which can help us identify this is letter ‘e’ which is a ‘c’-like structure with a loop. The writer might choose to have a closed loop or an open loop, based on whether he has his ears open to listen and understand others or not.
The letter ‘e’ is closed when it appears like given in the image below. If you find this ‘e’ in your handwriting, where the loop is closed, it reveals a writer who has closed his ears. Even if the writer is giving an impression that he is listening, in reality he is not. When would one do that? When someone has not felt heard himself, because of which the writer is uninterested in paying complete attention to what others have to say. Most of such cases originate from the childhood. So one must be extremely careful to lend a good attentive ear to what their child has to say, and to keep up with their own commitments as well.
The letter ‘e’ is open when it appears like given in the image below. This indicates a writer who has his ears open to listen to what others have to say. Good listening is a skill and requires a lot of patience. Hence, these writers are the ones who have patience and are empathetic to what others have to say. This type of ‘e’, when coupled with good self-esteem, goes a long way with the writer. The open ‘e’ is again a result of a childhood, where the chid has learnt the importance and relevance of good listening, led by example.
Hope you enjoyed this quick read, discovering how Graphology helps in identifying these listening traits at a glance, which otherwise is very tough!
Listening goes a long way in effective communication. Most communications fail because the concerned parties have not heard each other enough or carefully. So next time, if you come across someone who has this type of ‘e’, do not jump to conclusions and judge the person. Rather, stretch that hand of wisdom and patience, and let that person know that you are willing to listen to what the other has to say, and also to understand.
You may try to follow a few healthy listening practices :
- Listening actively to people
- Allowing people to complete what they have to say
- Not trying to mind-read what the other person has to say
- Tell people that you are listening
- Thank people whenever they have patiently heard you
Listen well. Live well. It goes a long way in building happy relationships and a fulfilling life.
