Often I am really blunt, yet try to avoid offending people (9w8). I think that I offend people too much, specifically people who are sensitive; or if what we're talking about is a sensitive topic and I am perceiving it in a different way from the person.
Then one of a few things can happen... they get notably offended and I'm really not sure why, they get hostile because they think I'm being a dick, or they bottle up how they are offended and I detect it, but I'm not sure why.
This shit just pisses me off. I do adjust to this after I see that they get offended or I'm told, but I can't help that they get offended in the first place.
It's especially bad when I'm angry. When I'm angry I speak first, think after. And it's usually really bad.
Anyone have any similar problems? Experiences? Are there some people you just can't associate with because of these kinds of things?
