① Lack of desire to understand, to discover, to learn, to help, to serve

Lack of understanding of personal and social benefits of being a good listener; lack of understanding that not listening is a sure way to nourish conflict

③ Thinking about what to say instead of listening what is being said

④ Being interested in yourself and waiting for a chance to talk instead of being interested in your interlocutor and what matters to him or her

Lack of ability of listening to emotions




⑥ Judging delivery (how they say it), not the content (what they say)

"Knowing" what you are going to hear

Seeking confirmation, not information

What's being said is getting in the way of what needs be said.

Being preoccupied and distracted
