    The correct answer is (A) We "tune out" others' ideas that run counter to our own preconceived thoughts.

    Explanation:

    In listening and understanding, a psychological barrier occurs as our beliefs, opinions, ideas, feelings, preconceptions and inner thoughts interrupt the process of listening, and therefore disrupt understanding. These barriers are unique in each person and due to this, these are one of the most difficult barriers to overcome as individuals need to be aware of their feelings, beliefs, etc. that prevent them from listening effectively and understanding.

    According to this ideas, the statement that describes psychological barriers is "We "tune out" others' ideas that run counter to our own preconceived thoughts" because psychological barriers include ideas or preconceived thoughts that stop us from listening effectively; and in this context, it is common we do not listen to speakers that show ideas or beliefs that are opposite from ours.
