I find myself being quite well understood when I emulate IQ levels 115-130, i.e. make myself more understandable than usual. But I don't feel so much understood at all when I'm being something more close to myself. You'd thought at the first glance I'd be flattering myself. But no, I'm just feeling sadness, mostly, and being distant from my fellow man.
There's one smart man who's humble and nice, if quite critical. I would have liked to have him as my brother. But, no such luck. Just smart bastards in my family.
And I was sad over the INFx who say they're being misunderstood. I thought being different. Some of the same stuff has become a destiny of mine, as well - at least partly.
I just think what I might have misunderstood. What if my ESTP friend is really a profoundly deep and caring person, who's way of doing things has just seemed superficial to me for no good reason?
I have sometimes felt my ESTP friend has been a person with a deeper commitment to his loved ones than I had acknowledged previously.
Likewise, there are many other errors in judgment.
I feel I'm not being misunderstood very often. For most of the part, I feel being understood for what I am. But, some misunderstandings feel bad.
I think I've mistaken my mother for a conservative person. She might not be that way. But. No matter what's one speciality, it's sad to be misunderstood.
