What makes it hard for even a good listener to listen?

Even if you are a good listener, it's very hard to listen to someone you do not respect. Also, if the person is constantly talking about his self and nothing but his self that's irritating and you really don't want to listen. It's also very hard to listen to a person you know doesn't listen to you or don't care about you or what you feel. A boring person can be hard to listen too but if you're a good listener it wouldn't be that hard.

I find it hard to listen to someone on a topic that I care nothing about. If it's a topic that I have little or no interest in it is hard not to think about something else while they are talking to me. I usually listen best when it is something I am passionate about or something that I have an interest in. Listening isn't always easy, sometimes it can be a real chore. If you start falling asleep when someone is talking, you aren't listening.
