    Since the dawn of humanity, people have tried to understand God, always failing. Thus, I feel rather misunderstood.

    It's those damn S'es!



    A joke people, a joke.

    I think for me, what you see is what you get. If people don't get me, it's because they just can't hang with my steez.

    LOL.

    I'll try to answer this question for real after I finally get to bed and am not aimlessly trying to stay awake and kill time.

    They do get me and that is why they take an instant dislike to me.

    But when I ask them, "why do you take an instant dislike to me?", they tell me it saves time.

    But I know they are only saying this to save my feelings - they do not give a flying ferret about the time.

    Because I don't particularly care to be gotten.

    on the flipside, i know that despite working so hard to not need anybody else, maybe id be happier if i did, even if just a little. when i was growing up, my mother always told me that no man is an island... i often wonder if that is one rule that i am not an exception to after all.
    I identify with this a lot.

    During conversations, some people find it difficult to follow my train of thought.

    Ironically, some people accuse me of being too quiet and a few say I talk too much.

    I think I might be too oblivious to know whether people "get" me or not, unless they're obvious about it. I know when people don't get my sense of humor. If they don't, I usually don't want to be friends with them, because I subconsciously use humor to keep conversations moving, and therefore I have a really hard time talking to people who don't get it. (speaking of which, I have an ENFP friend who I don't "get" to the extent that one of the main reasons why we're friends is that we appreciate each others' sense of humor.)

    But back to the OP (because I just had an epiphany about the topic in midstream - sorry!!), people don't get me because of how much I care about getting things done efficiently, quickly and to the best of my ability. They also don't get why I take things really personally sometimes. (That would be because I register even the tiniest things as FAILURE.)

    Besides that, I don't know.

    Good thread idea, Sunshine. Can't believe I missed it before. Thanks for sharing everyone.

    Some people don't get that I'm really idealistic. I criticize movies and books and ideas- I'm critical all over and they call that jaded and I joke that I "hate all movies". But criticizing/analyzing is just my modus operandi- it doesn't mean I don't enjoy/appreciate good points as well. Ironically, they're often the ones who are jaded -not being able to expect that things can be better than mediocre.
