these idea came up today.. just jotting them down:
- if you do a favor for someone, they feel obligated to reciprocate. I have probably been manipulated by this.
- "can you please do BIG-X for me? or, it would also help if you could do small-x for me.." — may have more chance of succeeding than just saying "can you please do small-x for me?"
- a friend said they feel "not themselves" when not thinking in words. I feel the opposite — I feel "not myself" when talking to people.
- two things that I think are feelings, but I didn't think of as feelings before, are a sense of "reality", e.g., interpretations of the world that only exist inside my head, but seem "real", and also the sense of "understanding".
