Stative Verbs can't take the progressive form

Verbos que não podem podem levar a terminação -ing
(progressive) são chamados de stative verbs. Já os que
podem são chamados de dynamic verbs

Some verbs are only (or mostly) used in simple tenses, and are
not used in continuous tenses. An example of a simple tense is
the present simple, or the past simple. An example of a
continuous tense is the present continuous or past continuous.
These verbs are called stative, or state verbs. A verb which isn’t
stative is called a dynamic verb, and is usually an action. Often
stative verbs are about liking or disliking something, or about a
mental state, not about an action.
