What came to my mind after I read your, Nadi, post was the question: ' How to convey the message in order to be well understood?'. What is more, is it always the listener fault that not get the idea that the speaker is trying to put?
In fact, if we consider your question, Nabi, what is your point? Perhaps you expected your readers just to nod their heads with agreement. Sort of supporting this famous quote?
However, maybe your intention was something more profound. You might have wanted from us a sort of essay about the human psychology or ever to write any kind of tutorial how to listen properly?
Anyway, this short question are the most tricky and at the same time very interesting ones. The powers of the words.
On the second thought, that seems to be women problem, since they ask question with their whole bodies, never know what is the really question :) At those situation for me is better not to answer.
