Listen Beyond Words: Without the function of your ears, you might rely on body language, mannerisms, and social cues to take in a situation. Beyond the sounds you hear, how much do you truly listen? Listening requires a lot more than taking in words and sounds — it is a symphony of tuning into others’ tone of voice, facial expressions and shared context between speaker and listener. So much can be shared in speech, and infinite more can be spoken in silence. Today, listen beyond words. Try to understand without relying on your ears. What do you notice? Does your perspective of what is ‘spoken’ change? Share your observations on our Challenge Feed.
