Re the second sentence: lol. Yeah, I bet you’re right.
Your last paragraph is interesting to me. I don’t think I can say that I’ve had the same experience, though I do think that some people have that effect on me. I can think of at least one person who I normally don’t run out of gas when I’m talking to them. But I think other people actually amplify the problem. For example, I meet with three of my friends for a friendly debate on a weekly basis, and the things they say frequently run against the grain of my mind, and I often run out of gas while trying to figure out how to respond to them.
That’s true for me too, there’s definitely people I resonate with that way and people I don’t.
