I can very much relate to this. Sometimes I don't even bother trying to put things into words... my words would come out sounding so lame in comparison to my thoughts and feelings. I could never do them justice, so I just don't bother. If their "intensity" is at 100% in my head, anything that I put into words would be, like... 25%? Maybe? If that. It's sometimes frustrating having things floating around in my head that I don't know how to share, though... I think that maybe if I got them out there, others might get me more. (Or, more likely, they'd just think I was even stranger. Hahaha.)...sometimes I just can't put into words what I want to say, the exact way I want to say it, so I just delete the my post and move on.
I agree with you. I think in order to be understood, it's important to adapt into the surroundings a little bit and try to speak to people in the way they speak to you.Communication is always the responsibility of the person who wants to communicate. If we want to communicate it's up to us learn the language and practice so the listener can understand what where saying.
I always find it interesting in foreign countries, and when the typical American tourist just expects everyone to speak English. I want to tell them repeating the same thing louder and louder isn't going to make it easier for them to be understood.
The same goes with the MBTI. I give directions to my house completely differently to an N vs. S. I keep my conversations linear for S types. That was the entire reason I learned the MBTI when I was 19 and moved out on my own. I spent the first 18 years of my life being a complete introvert so when I moved I out I realized I had no idea how to communicate or relate to other people.
Learning all the types and their behavior preferences made it so much easier for me to make myself understood.
