Well, I'm a good speaker, yes but instead of venting out and telling my story I listen other's story and them venting out more and comment them or advice them. I'm more of a listener and advisor, at least that's what my friends made me. Therapist friend of the group you can say.

the vote result is interesting lol
i think it is because this website attract introvert mostly , they usually dont talk much irl11
I'm a better listener but I can also be the speaker tho
It all depends on the situation.
When someone needs someone to talk to, I will listen, I won't judge that person and I won't try to find solutions and just listen, unless I'm asked for advice then I speak lol
When I'm like in a group and nobody else is talkative in that group, I become the speaker but someone else is taking that spot I'm gladly just sitting there and listen too10
I put speaker, but this isn't the truth in it's entirety. You should have had two more options.
Both, and other.
I am both.
I love to listen and learn from others and help others understand what's going on, but I also love to help people with problems and solutions too.11

Speaker. I can be a good listener but only to people i find worth listening too.13
I can honestly do both , to do great at sales , you need to listen , but I can also talk , I like the idea that I could judge when to do both.20
I do both, obviously, but I'm much better at active listening than making coherent sentences come out of my mouth. My stories and rants don't make much sense, but we usually have a good laugh about my adhd ramblings.10
good listener. i hate speaking to people, i'd rather be the listener/observer. so much easier on me, listening is easy10
Speak far better than I can listen. My attention span is short.11
I'm good at either, but I am more of a listener. I usually speak up when there are problems between people I care about so things die down again.10
TBH I have always been a good listener where there are not many out there anymore which a lot of people are so quick to judge and constantly cutting you off and/or interrupting before ever letting you finish what you are saying10
I'm more of a listener. I'm a therapist friend like you 😆10
I try my best to listen to people but I am definitely a talker lol22
When it comes to someone needing someone to talk to I feel like I’m a good listener. If someone says a bunch of things and then wants me to repeat it I won’t be able to do that10
Both, but I'm smart enough to know that you learn more by listening.10
I've always been a great listener but only within the past couple years been a good talker.
so right now both!10
I would like to think of myself as more of a good listener. I'm naturally quiet so it's just easier for me to do the listening vs the speaking.10
Both. I have to speak, it is a big part of my job.10
I hope I am a good listener
I am not a good speaker10
Definitely a good listener.22
I suck at speaking apparently. But I do listen well. Wish I had that charisma.10
Better listener than talker10
I'm better in talking than in hearing.10
I speak well but I am a better listener.10
Should be an option for both. I have given speeches at ceremonies, evidence in court, defended my studies, been the main speaker at conferences, guest speaker at universities and colleges. so I have gotten used to speaking to the masses.
I think I am a pretty good listener as well. I have been questioned by many litigators regarding studies I've completed so you're under a great amount of pressure to listen and answer questions. I am also a professional birder, so I not only listen to people, I listen to what animals have to say, also. Depending on the property, I can sometimes hear the calls and notes of up 50-60 bird species.
