Korean: Turning Verbs into Nouns Problem


I am an early level Korean learner having problems with expressing different thoughts. I want to express different words in different ways, but I don't know if my sentences would be correct. Here is a sentence I tried making:


Exp. 무시 (하다) to ignore

비난을 무시해요 I ignore criticism.  

....... It seemed to simple. So I thought, would it be possible to use the root without 하다 using -기 or 는 것 to express something abit different?

1) 비난을 비난을 무시는 거예요. It is criticism in which/that I ignore. OR I am that of a "criticism ignorer" (instead of doing ignoring, I want it to be a way of thinking). 

...... Secondly,  I want to further express that is not just something I do, but it is my way of thinking. Would it be possible to attach another verb to this form so it is more descriptive to be a state of thinking?

2) 비난을 무시는 거 가져요  "Criticism ignorer" is that in which I am/I possess.

...... Lastly going one step further, I want to add "I think" 

3)  비난을 무시는 거 가지다고 생각하다 Ignoring criticism (is something) that I think I have/possess 


In Korean would 1) , 2) , and 3) make sense and if not, how can I correct them? 

Thank you! - Andrew
