There’s an actual medical condition called “selective hearing” where people only hear one specific source of noise and block out everything else.
But that’s probably not what YOU think of when I say “selective hearing.” You probably think about your significant other’s remarkable ability to only hear SOME of the stuff you say . . . and conveniently ignore the rest.
And according to a new survey, seven out of 10 people say they believe their significant other has THAT kind of selective hearing.
Men “don’t hear” something their partner says at least once a day . . . for a total of 388 times a year.
And women “don’t hear” something their partner says almost every day . . . for a total of 339 times a year.
But we’re willing to give our partners the benefit of the doubt . . . more than half think their significant other might have some kind of actual hearing issues. (SWNS Digital)
