Stative verbs, and verbs being used to describe a state, generally don't use the continuous form. So stative uses like "I know" and "I have" are correct, but "I am knowing" and "I am having" are incorrect. A verb that has both stative and active meanings is not used in the continuous form when it has the stative sense. This tag should also be used for questions comparing dynamic with stative verbs.
