Faking attention - would be pretending to listen to someone who is talking and making them think you are actually interested in what they are saying. Some people fake attention so they will not seem rude to the speaker. Others do it because the person speaking is an authority figure and they do not want to get into trouble. Guy's do it when their girlfriends are babbling and so on.
You want an example of "faking attention"?
My Sister loves to talk. She talks 24/7 and does not stop. The things that she talks about are silly and useless knowlege. I can only tolerate her for small periods of time before the noise irritates me and makes me angry. Sometimes when she is talking about nothing that I want to hear about, my mind wonders and thinks about other things that I am interested in. While my mind in wondering, I no longer hear what she is saying. Allowing my mind to wonder blocks out her speaking and gives me a little break. While my mind is wondering, my eyes and attention seemed fixed on her as if I were listening. I have even learned to say "really" or "umm hmm" whenever she pauses between sentences in order to fake that I am paying attention. When she is finished speaking I have no clue what she thinks that we spoke about? It is a mean thing to do but all of us are guilty of it at some point in our lives.
