True listening eventually provides all knowledge for consideration.
This is beyond claiming or potentially being a "good listener"
This is the 'why' not understood, before the reactionary problems, our world community encounters.
Listening can be auditory and/or transitional from other input sources, i.e., visual reading is transferred to one's mind-voice for interpretation.
Even a hearing or sight disabled individual has a mindful voice in whatever 'language' they uniquely come to understand. A 'language,' it is estimated, no one else can or may know.
So, I mean to be a listener, a continual absorber of information/knowledge. Base on this, I strive to prevent problems vs. having to overcome them. I work to "not start part way in" based on MY experience, MY (incomplete) knowledge, MY (biased)opinions, instead start from a true beginning with each individual/situation encountered. Creating an increased ratio for agreement, due to the increased ratio of understanding is the answer to all we conflict over.
