שלום!

What does "לא הייתי צריך להקשיב לו" mean? "I should not have listened to him."?

תודה!

    I didn't need to listen to him.

    It's just how you indicate the past tense for צריך.

    It depends on the context, but in most cases it is said to indicate regret (shouldn't have), and not as an informative sentence (didn't need).
