    Smile "won't just " V.S. "just won't"

    Dear all,

    I have read "won't just" and "just won't" in many articles and gotten confused with these two usuages for a long time. Could someone tell me the difference between them? Thank you very much. ^^

    Don't ask Bill. He just won't listen. (he will do nothing but refuse to listen)
    Ask Bill. He won't just listen - he will take action to help you sort it out. (besides listening to you, he will take action to help you)
