Are you a crocodile or an elephant when listening to others

 

Are you a Crocodile? 
 
or are you an Elephant?
 
The above question was raised by one of the participants on a recent category and supplier management workshop whilst discussing influencing stakeholders.
 
Whilst I'm sure someone will tell me that a crocodile's hearing is very acute - for me it illustrated the old adage "We have two ears and one mouth for a reason: to listen twice as much as we speak".
