    But it can be helpful for managing a conflict. For example, I often have to speak with irate parents. You'd be surprised how much it helps calm them down when I say something like, "I understand that you are feeling frustrated because [insert what they just said here]..." before I explain our side of the situation.

    But yeah, I get why that was your last date with that girl.
    You: You think it's helpful to acknowledge what someone's saying.

    I: I agree. It's just awful to do it in a very mechanical, synthetic way.

    You: You are saying this thread is mechanical.

    I: I have deliberately designed this thread to be mechanical just like learning the times table or learning poetry by heart. However if you wish to comment on this thread I have set up another thread under this topic called, "Meta Understaning with 'I' and 'You'.
    So if we wish to comment on this thread, we are more than welcome to comment on the thread on, "Meta Understanding with 'I' and 'You'.

    You have set up this thread to be mechanical. You direct comments about the tread to "Meta Understanding with 'I' and 'You'.

    I would like to mature one day so i can understand others.

    Deep down, I would like to go into a trance.
