Mom/teacher feely-type coworker, ISFJ if I had to guess: We’re almost done for the year! Yess! Have you heard anything, are you moving to England? (I heard more like “do you know if you’re moving to England?” but upon hindsight, she probably asked it like what I wrote there)
Me: nahh :/
Her: oh!!! I’m so sorry!! (Sounds like I told her some relative died)
Me: *confused by empathetic heart-felt sadness reaction* wait— what did you ask me?
Her: *look of confusion/stun* uh..England? Are you going?
Me: oh, ok. That’s what I thought! Sorry, I wasn’t sure. Yeah it’s a process, it’s not totally out. I know it will just be a wait to find the right job to sponsor me.
Her: are you ok?? It’s so hard!
Me: oh. Yeah. I’m fine. I mean, I really hope I get something soon but I knew it would be a wait and see.
Her: ok! Well I will be fingers crossed!
And this is how I get into confusing conversations with people sometimes. Reactions that don’t match what I think I am saying but...apparently..do? Lol I just liked that I managed to throw her off too by my confusion hahaha compounded confusion! Woo!
