  • 1.  Is there a word for this?

    Posted 10-14-2021 12:37

    I am thinking about how we perceive honesty in others and I am wondering if the concept I have in mind has a name.
    What do you call the experience of talking to someone who appears to be thinking about something else while talking to you?

    Any ideas?

    Interesting question, Elizabeth. It is the opposite of active listening. It happens a lot.
