7. Dialogic listening

The word 'dialogue' stems from the Greek words 'dia', meaning 'through' and 'logos' meaning 'words'. Thus dialogic listening mean learning through conversation and an engaged interchange of ideas and information in which we actively seek to learn more about the person and how they think. Dialogic listening is sometimes known as 'relational listening'.

There are seven types of listening, starting with the basic discrimination of sounds and ending with the a deeper communication.

3. Critical listening

- Is listening in order to evaluate and judge, forming opinion about what is being said. Judgment includes assessing strengths and weaknesses, agreement and approval.
1. Discriminative listening

- Is the most basic type of listening; its objective is to distinguish sounds and visual stimulations and accustomed the ears to the language sounds.
- We learn to discriminate between sounds within our own language early and later we are unable to discriminate between the phonemes of other languages.

5. Appreciative listening

- In appreciative listening, we seek certain information which will appreciate, for example that which helps meet our needs and goals.

- We use appreciative listening when we are listening to good music, poetry or maybe even the stirring words of a great leader.

6. Therapeutic listening

- The listener has a purpose of not only empathizing with the speaker but also to use this deep connection in order to help the speaker understand, change or develop in some way.

- This not only happens when you go to see a therapist but also in many
social situations.

2. Comprehension listening

- The next step beyond discriminating between different sounds
and sights is to make sense of them.
- We focus on the understanding of the message.
- Comprehension listening is also known as content listening,
informative listening and full listening.
4. Evaluative listening

In evaluative listening, or critical listening, we make judgments about what the other person is saying. We seek to assess the truth of what is being said. Evaluative listening is also called critical, judgmental or interpretive listening.
