This post is part of TED’s “How to Be a Better Human” series, each of which contains a piece of helpful advice from people in the TED community; browse through .Listening may not be the most exciting part of conversation, but it’s essential if you want to have a meaningful exchange with another person.Think about a time you felt misunderstood by somebody.
