I confess. I apologize
I broke rule 7 here.https://www.exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,2219704
I had a post of mine deleted because possibly I was attempting to mind-read another poster.
And mind reading is I believe this?
"The popular perception of "mind reading”—the act of knowing someone’s thoughts and feelings through innate, telepathic means—is likely an impossible feat of fantasy. What is real, however, is the psychological concept of "empathic accuracy," which is the ability to accurately map someone's mental terrain by reading the cues telegraphed by their words, emotions, and body language."https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/basics/mind-reading
So this is a part of what we evolved to do I believe. How hard is this for you not to do here? I find it extremely difficult. Granted I would like my own mind reading not to be a knee jerk reaction. But it is part of the allure possibly because of the anonymity. We may know each other's real names and be able to stalk people on FB as a result but we don't really have access to their body language, voice inflections, demeanor and such. Other posters become a puzzle to decipher and impute with characteristics that aren't really part of them.
I've tried my best to abide by the rules of the board. Sometimes I think this is an impossible task.
