Maybe it’s to do with my personality type, but I act out scenarios in my head a lot. My imagination then impacts on real life. I convince myself that everyone else has played out the same scenario in THEIR heads. I convince myself that I don’t need to explain anything because they already know!
Of course the probability of two minds being in sync is tiny and this can lead to misunderstandings.
The cure to all this is scary in its simplicity. Talk out loud to people, and ask hard questions even if you think you already know the answer.
