Either my idea of what it means to understand someone’s point of view is really weird, or I have quite a lot instead of just a little trouble with the thought-mirroring thing*.
…Yeah, I don’t have any more to say about this at this point. I don’t know how to describe it.
*There was going to be a link here but I can’t remember where I first read about this and I have no idea what search terms would help me find it, so now there isn’t. Anyway, at some point, somewhere, I heard some autistic people talk about how they have trouble arguing with people because they find themselves verbally repeating, or actually believing, the other person’s point of view temporarily, even though they don’t actually agree. This phrase may only be vaguely related to what they called it, I don’t remember.
