Hearing and listening.. what’s the difference

February 17, 2018 by Raji Parangad

WE HEAR WITH OUR EARS BUT LISTEN WITH OUR BRAIN.

”I can look directly at someone, nod when they are talking, may be even throw in a ‘yeah’ and still not hear a  single word they said…….’

Studies have shown that people with hearing loss lose cognitive function much faster than those without it. But in Australia, the average person diagnosed with hearing loss will take between seven and 10 years to act on it.He’ll get away with it for many of those years, because hearing loss is invisible. He may get grumpy and strain to hear, he may accuse others of mumbling, but he will often smile and nod and few will pick it up.He won’t know that his hearing is linked to his brain function and that what he’s not using, he’s losing.
