Having a friend who really cares and listens is a great help.  See if you can spot it in your mates:

  • Watch for people who ask questions about what you’ve said or want more detail
  • See if they repeat some of what you say back to you
  • Does it feel like they are paying attention?
  • Did they seem to hear everything you said, or just some of it?
  • If you’ve got a mate that passes most of these tests, you’re in luck.
