As a professional videographer and an observant member of society, I know this is true: people do not listen. Maybe I’m a little more attuned to it, because I spend a lot of time in earphones with a microphone, but people have a hard time hearing questions. People’s personal agendas are typically so forceful, that questions are typically unstructured and disconnect to questions asked.
With politicians, this agenda is stronger than say, a teenager. Perhaps the only humans that listen are children … and my wife Tina. She listens better than anyone I’ve ever met.
