Taken literally, this is true of all things- if you stop making noise, you will hear the natural noise around you. Think about in the spring or summer if you have your windows open in the early morning or evening after you're in bed: you're quiet because you're sleepy but you can hear the birds chirping and the bugs making noise, the occasional car going by, and airplane flying over, etc. Quiet brings out other sounds.
Taken into deeper meaning, introverts are always accused of being quiet and not jumping into discussions, which may make it seem like they don't have an opinion to contribute or they are disinterested in the conversation. In reality, some people are just really good listeners who like to sit back and absorb what's going on around them. And when you do this, it's amazing what you can learn. It's very interesting to observe people and listen to what they have to say, and if you stop making noise and just sit and listen and be still and quiet, you just might gain some insight and knowledge.
Are you a noise-maker or a listener?
