Distracter: Having the tendency to change the subject or put down an idea before it is even fully expressed.
Judger: Having the tendency to listen with a critical ear and prejudge the merit of an idea, perhaps dismissing it prematurely.
Preparer: The tendency to rehearse what you want to say in response before the speaker has completed their thought and losing sight of the speaker’s full message.
Nitpicker: Having the tendency to look for something to disagree with; pushback at; challenge or argue about often coming from the need to be precise and/or right.
Fortune Teller: Having the tendency to think you know what someone is going to say before they say it and responding from that assumption.
