The problem is that the outgoing packets are as well the incoming packets.
When you send packets your own network card can see them. If the packets are
addressed to your own system that could be the reason of capturing the
outgoing packets. But if you are also working with the card in promiscuous
mode you will see all the packets being sent through the network, including
your own, so you will have to aplly a filter in order to get only packets
coming from outside.
I don't know if this response is teh one you wanted, sorry if it wasn't
