Writing Assignment 2: Listening Styles
Assignment Directions: Spring 2019
The revised Listening Styles Profile (LSP-R) measures four constructs including relational listening, analytical listening,
task-oriented listening and critical listening (Bodie, Worthington & Gearhart, 2013) styles are outlined in chapter 7 of
your textbook. For this writing assignment, you are asked to complete the Listening Styles Profile (LSP-R) and then
answer the following prompts.
Take time to read each of the following and assess how each statement applies to you by marking your level of
agreement/disagreement with each item. Do not think of any specific listening situation. The stronger you disagree with a
statement the lower the number you will write in the far right column next to the statement. The stronger you agree with a
statement, the higher the number you will write down. Your score for each item should reflect the following: Strongly
Disagree = 1, Disagree =2, Somewhat Disagree =3, Unsure = 4, Somewhat Agree = 5, Agree = 6, Strongly Agree = 7.
