Synonyms of "Ignore" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between ignore and dismiss ?
A: Ignore is when you do not want to talk to someone, and even if they try to talk to you, you pretend like you don’t see them or hear them. It’s the same when you receive a call and you don’t answer, or when you receive a text message and you don’t answer. This act is to ignore.

Dismiss generally means you are allowed to leave. For example if you are talking to someone of a higher position like a teacher, if they are done talking to you and you are allowed to leave, then you are dismissed.

However, dismiss can have the same effect as ignore. You can say for example, “she completely dismissed his idea”, which means she does not accept his idea, ignoring his idea.
