I'm bookmarking this one, Sean! I never correlated my sooocial anxiety to my sucky listening skills. But, it makes so much sense. I'm a discovery writer, too, and appreciate your suggestion of treating conversations in this way. Also, I notice when my voice gets high pitched and I get more energetic in conversations--I get self conscious at that point and try to real it in, lol. This advice is great!
