How can I improve my ability to listen to another person in a conversation and respond right away?

Answer by Dave Stripé:

I know this feeling, and I'd say the main thing is that we need to relax. I relax by treating the conversation as a one mind event rather than a two person event. We don't have to respond to people like it is an interview, I tend to come back with how I would feel about their story and if they feel the same way. That makes it a one mind thing, rather than a subservient or selfish thing. It also gives you a lot more scope for conversation, because now you are talking about feelings, not facts and events.
