e.g. not hearing what your partner says or mainly not processing what they say, so that they think you are not listening or must have heard but are asking what - when actually you haven't heard at all what they have said. This mainly occurs when background noise, tv, washing machine, road, car engine, radio etc... or even with no noise when you are focussing on something else - like cooking, you focus so hard on that thing that everything else is blocked out. is this just me? Is this related to Dyslexia?
