Talking vs. Listening
For a few years, I conducted an informal survey where I asked people if they had to choose one, would they rather be deaf or mute. The majority of men said deaf. When I asked why they'd say, "Because then I could talk. I could tell people things." The majority of women said mute. When I asked why they'd say, "Because I'd want to be able to hear what other people are saying."
