In brief: Listen with empathy

Maybe to be a good listener the person doing the talking just has to have the impression that the other person is really listening.
For many people being empathetic is what they are looking from someone else and that could be a quality that the good listener possesses. Empathy and simply listening can be adequate for many people. I don't think you have to have a good memory to be good listener.
