“There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge… observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination.”   Denis Diderot

Do you wish to know why you are misunderstood?

    Amazing sir,but I would like to add on,what I believe why people misunderstood because of lack of soft use of touchy words,which reflects you as an arrogent,though practically you are not..good day..

      Thank you again my friend.The whole problem of misunderstanding comes because of lack of proper communication either by the improper words we use though one doesn’t mean it or simply what I call improper decoding by the other person.majority of the times,the listener lacks patience in properly deciphering the discussion.

        but quote unquote touch to an agreement with you friend,I have seen so many examples where,sometimes with good communication also misunderstanding happenes though,as there are signs of underestimations,i guess..

          Human mind is a complex stuff difficult to underestimate, my feeling is…. the problem lies always with one of the two having conversation,which the other can’t understand.
          We are helpless in these situations.
