Attitudinal Listening Profile refers to a test developed by Geier and Downey that measures individual listening styles.
A listening style in psychology refers to an individual's preferred approach or method of listening to others. Some people may prefer to actively listen and fully engage with the speaker, while others may be more passive in their listening approach. There are several different listening styles that have been identified in the literature, including empathic listening, critical listening, and defensive listening. Empathic listening involves actively trying to understand the speaker's perspective and emotions, while critical listening involves analyzing and evaluating the content of the message. Defensive listening involves protecting one's own viewpoints and disregarding the message of the speaker.
