When we see someone speaking, we often feel like they’re talking above their station. We sense that their words don’t align with their type or personality. It doesn’t feel like they’re in sync with our community and so on. But let’s think differently. What exactly does aligning words with type mean? Is there a criterion for this? Or maybe the person has only spoken informally so far and now can’t seem to speak formally. Oh wait, I digressed. Here’s my point: when you feel like someone’s speaking above their station, take a moment to consider that maybe you’re feeling resentment towards their words. Perhaps it’s a feeling of inadequacy, a lack of those thoughts. A feeling that someone can’t think that widely. Our society doesn’t encourage this type of thinking, and so on.
