Stative verbs are verbs that you will not conjugate in the progressive tenses because they inherently express quiescence rather than movement.
Here is a rather complete list of common English Stative Verbs:
feel ( = have an opinion )
have ( = possess )
look ( = seem )
measure ( = have length, etc. )
realize (= be/become aware)
smell (To notice or recognize a particular smell)
Stand ( = bear “I can’t stand him.” dislike somebody/something)
think ( = have an opinion )
weigh ( = have weight )
Note: Many of those verbs may be both stative or action verbs depending on the context.
This is a rather complete list of common English Stative Verbs, you don’t need to memorize all of them out of context, they will become familiar to you through practice. Take that list as a reference. You can consult it whenever you want.
