    I think twice for me too. Then I just try to go with it and hope it's not relevant later.

    Yeah.

    i hte it somch whn pple mmbl...


    Actually, my eldest son (INTP) mumbles a lot. With him, I'll just laugh and say, "whaaat?" and then he'll laugh and apologize and speak more clearly. I know he can handle it if I ask him to repeat. Some people get upset if you don't hear them the first two times.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I usually don't respond right away when someone tells me something because I think and process the comment, which to them appears like I didn't hear, so I suppose this, to them, is a metaphorical 'what?'. It's also to appear more pretentious than I really am.

    My nephew's a mumbler and so I openly mumble back to him and he makes an effort to remove the marbles from his mouth.

    When I lived on the reserve, people rarely made eye contact when they talked, they had some accent and they didn't speak loudly or confidently often. I honestly thought that my hearing was going because I had to ask the majority of people to repeat what they said several times. I finally realized it wasn't me and it came down to lack of confidence. Sometimes if you said, "What?" kids would just shut down and not repeat anything. As I got to know certain kids better, we talked about it openly or else I teased them until they would talk loud enough to be heard.

    In mainstream society though I go with two times and, like Jennifer, just hope it isn't relevant to the conversation later on.

    Oh this drives me crazy and I'm not hard of hearing. If you are speaking to someone (in the same language) it is your responsibility to make yourself understood. Not the other way around. If you can't bring yourself enunciate clearly, I'll ignore you for the most part.

    Ha ha! Yes, I think I'd also say "twice, but maybe it should be three times" this can be super-awkward...

    I disagree. It requires one who wants to speak and one who wants to listen. It's a cooperative system.

    Sometimes it is hard to listen...specially when you're thinking of something..

    ...and when what you're thinking of is more interesting than the conversation taking place... I pretty much don't ask "What" unless I think the situation warrants it. Unless I think the comment is for some reason very important. I am also guilty of mumbling, but when I mumble, I actually DON'T want other people to hear it . I used to think I had hearing problems, lol, but it's good to see it's not just me.

    I agree

    No I am not really referring to what you're speaking of. Maybe it's my years in a call center environment that makes me much more aware of how I speak and what I hear. In my experience, the majority of people can't seem to be bothered to make the way they speak understood. That's much different than the cooperation required in a conversation.

    I did not imply this.

    My point remains. It's a co-op game, not a singular story mode.
