HELPS word-Studies

3876 parakoḗ (from 3844 /pará, "contrary by close comparison" and 191 /akoúō, "hear") – properly, contrary-hearing, i.e. disobedience which springs from a negative (opposing) attitude, i.e. the refusal to listen properly.

This "hearing" has the attitude of refusing to take heed and therefore is inattentive ("hearing" that will not comply). 3876 /parakoḗ reflects the attitude that chooses to disobey because of disinterest.
