Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    In a conflict situation, listening to the opposition is not difficult.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In a conflict situation, listening to the opposition can be difficult. Conflict often involves strong emotions and differing perspectives, which can make it challenging to truly listen and understand the opposing side. People may be more focused on defending their own positions or trying to prove themselves right, rather than actively listening to the other side. This can result in misunderstandings and further escalation of the conflict. Therefore, the statement that listening to the opposition is not difficult in a conflict situation is false.

    Negotiation involves a series of interactions and exchanges between two or more parties with the aim of reaching a mutually beneficial agreement.

    Listening is different in an atmosphere of anxiety or threat.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Listening is indeed different in an atmosphere of anxiety or threat. When individuals are anxious or feel threatened, their focus and attention can be affected, making it more challenging for them to actively listen and comprehend information. The heightened state of alertness can cause individuals to be more self-centered and preoccupied with their own concerns, making it difficult to fully engage in the listening process. Additionally, anxiety or threat can trigger defensive behaviors, leading individuals to filter or distort incoming information based on their own biases or fears. Therefore, in an atmosphere of anxiety or threat, listening may be compromised and less effective.

    Crucial discussions in a third language will exhaust the listener and cause resentment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Having crucial discussions in a third language will not necessarily exhaust the listener or cause resentment. This statement assumes that discussing important matters in a language that is not the listener's first language will have negative consequences, but this is not always the case. The listener's level of proficiency in the third language, their familiarity with the topic being discussed, and their overall communication skills will determine their level of exhaustion or resentment. Therefore, the statement is not universally true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Be aware that all people around the table, including yourself, are filtering and interpreting every word through a personal screen of:  (Select three)

    • A.

      Attitudes

    • B.

      Age

    • C.

      Values

    • D.

      Expectations

    • E.

      Physical appearance

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Attitudes
    C. Values
    D. Expectations
    Explanation
    The correct answer is attitudes, values, and expectations. When people are engaged in a conversation, they filter and interpret every word based on their individual attitudes, values, and expectations. These factors shape their perception and understanding of the information being communicated. Age and physical appearance may also influence how people interpret information, but they are not mentioned in the given options. Therefore, the correct answer is attitudes, values, and expectations.

    Empathic listening is possibly the most second most important skill a successful negotiator can have.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Empathic listening is indeed an important skill for a successful negotiator, but it is not the second most important skill. While it is crucial to understand and empathize with the other party's perspective, there are other skills such as effective communication, problem-solving, and strategizing that are equally if not more important in negotiations. Therefore, the statement that empathic listening is the second most important skill is false.

    Listening should be passive, not active.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that listening should be passive rather than active. However, this is not true. Active listening involves fully engaging with the speaker, paying attention, and responding appropriately. It requires concentration and effort to understand the speaker's message. Therefore, the correct answer is False, as active listening is essential for effective communication.

    Traps for listeners include:  (Select four)

    • A.

      Taking notes

    • B.

      Half truths

      Name calling

    • F.

      Predicting outcomes

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Half truths
    C. Name calling
    E. Claiming support
    F. Predicting outcomes
    Explanation
    The traps for listeners in this question are half truths, name calling, claiming support, and predicting outcomes. Half truths can mislead listeners by only presenting part of the truth, while name calling can distract and discredit the speaker. Claiming support can manipulate listeners into believing that the speaker has backing or agreement, and predicting outcomes can manipulate listeners by making them believe certain results are inevitable.

    Effective listening is the foundation stone of the negotiation and conflict resolution process.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Effective listening is indeed the foundation stone of the negotiation and conflict resolution process. When individuals engage in effective listening, they are able to fully understand the concerns and perspectives of the other party involved in the negotiation or conflict. This understanding helps in building trust, finding common ground, and developing mutually beneficial solutions. Without effective listening, miscommunication and misunderstandings can arise, leading to further conflict and hindering the resolution process. Therefore, it is crucial for successful negotiation and conflict resolution to prioritize and practice effective listening skills.
