Basically, how much effort do you have to expend to listen to someone?

If I don't actively try to listen, usually by repeating their words in my head words, then people talking is just noise no different from footsteps. I have to actively work to interpret people's words.

This comes up a lot when people talk to me without first getting my attention. If someone just starts talking I won't hear anything they said and I'll need to ask them to repeat it when I'm ready to try to listen.

Well, nothing would make sense if we listened to all the sounds which surround us with the same concentration, simultaneously.
