Wisdom

Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.  Proverbs 17:28 KJV

God created us with two ears and one mouth for a reason. Yes, one of those was so that sounds would make us aware of the location of what makes a sound. But it could just be that we are to listen twice as much as we speak.

Short of divine revelation, it is hard to learn anything when you are speaking. Even then we are encouraged in scripture, “let him who has ears to hear, hear”.

One thing I have learned over the years is that it is critical to listen to all the information available and consider carefully all the details before making a decision concerning, or commenting on, anything.
