It probably happens regularly that your girlfriend gets angry "out of nothing" You are not aware of any harm, but she is convinced that you are deliberately ignoring her. Fortunately you are not the only one, research shows that 7 out of 10 adults know for sure that their partner does not consciously hear them. This has everything to do with selective deafness, so it's not your fault at all.

Seven times a week

Almost everyone is affected. Unfortunately, it appears that men suffer from this more often than women, but your girlfriend is not holy either. Although you probably already know that. According to research by Scrivens Hearing Care, a man suffers from selective deafness about seven times a week. Which amounts to 388 times a year. Women a little less, namely six times a week, but that too is still far too often of course. About 339 times a year that she deliberately ignores you.

Serious hearing damage

Then the bad news, because this selective deafness could be a sign of real hearing problems. At least, that's what the hearing care professional says. According to Kirran Saimbi it is all nice and nice, but people with whom this happens regularly should really sound the alarm. Perhaps it is therefore not a bad idea at all to do such a free hearing test. Although of course you no longer have an excuse if you intentionally ignore your girlfriend.
