Stative verbs - Verbos que no suelen utilizarse en la forma continua

Algunos verbos no se usan en forma continua. Son aquellos que expresan:

Sentidos / Percepción: feel, hear, see, smell, sound, taste, touch.

Pensamientos / Actividad mental: appear, doubt, imagine, realise, think, believe, forget, know, remember, understand, consider, guess, mean.
