What does the Two of Swords mean?

RWS 2.0 Two of SwordsHere is a pithy meaning for the Two of Swords:
The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand; we listen to reply.

I found this quote (unattributed) on a meme on Facebook. So I Googled it and found a very similar quote from Stephen R. Covey (famous for his book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”):
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”

I then found several more interesting quotes from him that work well as pithy meanings for the Two of Swords:

  • “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.”
  • “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
  • “Two people can see the same thing, disagree, and yet both be right. It’s not logical; it’s psychological.”
  • “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
