People are so much more than the points on which there is disagreement. Listening skills, if you really have them requires that you shut up long enough to hear everything that person has to say and when they are done you can look them in the eye and tell them the one thing they told you that makes you smile, the one thing that makes you laugh until your stomach hurts, the one thing that really touches you, and the one thing that makes you cry and hurt for them.
