Hey, in this thread, Viv said:
Since I can't reply in the NF Private forum, I figured I'd start a topic here about this. For Viv or any other non-SP to explain what is taking things at face value "too much"? Is this something that bothers you? If so, can you explain what it means to you and why it bothers you?SPs I know tend to take things at face-value too much, which is one of my pet-peeves.
To me, taking things at face value is actually respecting people. Instead of reading hidden meanings into what people say, I let them speak for themselves, rather than jumping to conclusions or making assumptions. I try to make it clear to people if they want me to know something, they can tell me and I'll take what they say for what it is, and they don't have to think of some clever, mysterious way to say stuff because I don't require that.
