… out of simple curiosity, our spouse or partner asks us why we were late getting home and we’re sure that he or she doesn’t trust us.
… the cashier at the grocery store says we owe more than we expect and we’re sure she is wrong even though we really just misread the label on the shelf.
… our boss allows a coworker to take some additional time off due to a confidential family crisis and we’re sure the boss is just being preferential.
These are the “vibrating sounds” of life and we often misdiagnose them. Sometimes, our misdiagnosis is due to our own experiences or prejudices. Other times it’s simply because we aren’t skilled in analyzing the situation correctly. In other words, we never got adequate training in life mechanics.
