your last sentence has it best. I was expanding upon what you said “I have no direct knowledge” and that “i lack experience” by providing examples of my background or of what i’m familiar with to provide some compare and contrast material to work with. simply raw material for possible use in discussion. I wasn’t attempting to send a mood across. Sarcasm or attacking isn’t my forte and my tone is more flat, like a Mr. Spock rattling off facts as best as possible. compare. contrast. i’m sorry if it came across as a battle. From me its intention was data dump.

 I suspect there is a sentence i used that gave a mood or tone indication.I don’t know what that was but I would like to know so I can avoid the construct in the future.it’s not my first time getting in trouble. Many a record needle scratched after I opened my mouth in groups.i’m always learning more social things.

I hope I am an exception here.in standardized testing, I scored well on everything except for one very stand out:Reading comprehension.

I didn’t know what that meant until a few years ago.

I score between 45% and 62% each time if i remember right. i can check. Guessing.

what I learned a few years ago is no Reading Comprehension means that I can’t see context without a lot of conscious work.

there’s apparently a “normal way” to think or assume.

I lack that.

“what is the best title for this article?”

“what did the author mean?”

I could never answer those.

it doesn’t bother me that I can’t do what i can’t do.

I just compensate as best I can.

One of the ways I compensate is being very explicit because I do better with explicit.

if there was an implied meaning it’s unlikely I will catch it unless I have experience.

I believed that’s what you were saying as well; that we don’t all have shared experiences and that it makes a difference.

The reason I restate it several different ways is to be sure I understood you because I often misunderstand people.

it’s a reflection on my cognitive flaw

 that’s as far as my brain dump goes here.I hope there is something useful there.

my goal is always mutual understanding.

 387 words: your response prompted 387 words out of me.

I have no idea where those words came from. Communication is weird but fascinating.
