I have to admit… I’m guilty of all of these myself. I spend so much time in my head and I often forget to pay close attention to how I sound. A friend of mine once said that we only really hear what we want to hear, so I’ve never really thought about it, but I do have to admit that I do have a tendency to overshare my opinion.
When it comes to what people say and what they mean, the more literal we are, the more “literal” we are in relation to the things we say and the more “non-literal” we are in relation to the things we say. When it comes to the subject of the literal vs. non-literal, it seems pretty clear that literal people speak more often than non-literal people.
I can think of many times where literal people have said something non-literal, or something literal that was a little more than I was ready for. I get that the difference is that literal people have more to say and more of their words are in the present tense. I also get that there are some people who are literal in certain situations, and non-literal in others.
I’m also a little hesitant to make generalizations about literal versus non-literal. The people I’ve met who are non-literal are, generally, not very nice people. This isn’t to say that people who aren’t literal should be avoided, but I would caution that non-literal people are generally not nice people.
I think people who are literal are generally nicer than those who are non-literal. I think people who are non-literal are usually not nice people, but I wouldn’t say that non-literal people are generally not nice people.
People who are literal are generally not nice people. This is based on my own experience. Ive met people who are nonliteral and people who are literal and Ive found that the first two groups are generally quite nice. Although, Ive also met people who are literal and someone who is non-literal and someone who is literal.
The one thing that Ive found is a common theme in all of the literal/nonliteral discussions Ive seen: people tend to treat literal people differently. It doesnt really matter for literal people, but for non-literal people, it does. People who are literal are usually quite nice people, but people who are non-literal are generally not.
I cant really think of another group that arent literal, but I can think of a couple of groups that arent literal. The ones that Ive seen are people who are non-literal aren’t necessarily people who are literal. The ones that Ive seen are people that are non-literal, or non-literal people that aren’t literal.
I think it is because people that are non-literal are not as likely to be literal. They are more likely to be non-literal, but that doesnt mean that they arent as literal as literal people, who are more likely to be literal.
