Reasons Create The Illusion That It Is Possible To Be Irresponsible
YOU MAY NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SAYING
People often give a Reason instead of answering a question.
For example, if someone asks you, "Do you want to eat?" and you answer by saying, "I am full," you force the questioner to make the Assumption that if you are 'full', you never want to eat. But how many times have you been 'full' and wanted to eat anyway? Just because you are 'full' does not automatically imply that you do not want to eat. You are giving the questioner no answer. You are changing the subject. You are answering a different question. You are answering the question, "How full are you?" By avoiding giving a straight answer, you act as if it is possible to avoid responsibility for the Conclusion that your questioner makes. You force your questioner to guess that by you saying, "I am full." you are actually saying, "No thank you, I do not want to eat." But you are not saying what you want or do not want. You are implying what you want, but not saying it. f your questioner guesses wrong about your answer, for example, if they assume that because you are full you do not want to eat, your Gremlin can easily make them wrong by saying, "No! That is not what I meant. Of course I want to eat. I am trying to say that you made a mistake trying to feed me now because I am not hungry. But now I must eat."
For example, if you ask, "What are the plans for tomorrow?" and their answer is, "I am not sure," by giving you a noncommittal answer, "I don't know," they are insuring that they cannot be blamed for giving a wrong answer.
