I hope this is in the right forum..
I'm really curious about what this function is (or if it would be considered a function) because I seem to use it constantly without even thinking
Okay. Here are a few examples:
Example 1: My friend and I went to a fair. There was this old man sitting about 7 benches away from us that had been staring at me earlier. I was talking to my friend and saw him move a bench closer. I said to her "That guy is moving closer, I think we should leave" she claimed "you're being paranoid". Again, he moves when bench closer and I say to her "If he moves one more time we're
leaving, deal?" and in response she said "whatever". He moved again, of course and we left. Leaving her saying "How did you know that?"
Example 2: My brother donates plasma three times a week. He went there twice and they gave him a different reason why they couldn't allow him to donate each time. He asks me to lend him money and tells me he'll pay me back the next day when he donates. And I say to him "No. Because you're not going to be able to donate. They've turned you away twice this week" he responds by saying "Oh, they can't turn me away a third time. Stop being so negative." and sure enough, they did. Leaving him saying "How did you know that"
Example 3: Another thing I can do pretty accurately is memorize peoples behaviors. Once when I was very young I didn't want to go somewhere with my mom. My brother aid "Well, just don't go" and I said "I can't do that because then she'll yell. Watch I'll show you." (I also stated what she was going to say, but I don't remember what is was). I go into her room and tell her that I don't want to go. And, of course, she starts yelling and says verbatim of what I said she would say. And my brother was left wondering how I knew that.
Thanks for responses.
