Student or Learner
If I don't like or to share something with anybody; what kind of person I will be called? "Miser" is also mean quite same but that's only about money but I am actually not talking about money. It could be anything that belongs to me and I don't want to share that with anyone.
Please help me.
Aren't there more words besides "selfish"?
Probably, but I am not going to bother thinking about them if my attempt to help is simply greeted with a demand for more help.
Thanks 5j, to be honest I am not satisfied with your answer. I hope there should be more than it. Also I didn't understand well what you said on your last post. Did you mean that I did not greet your attempt?
Have I done such a mistake or wrong to you? I can't even think of it. You know we are poor at English so sometimes there might be problems to express what we want to, and what we write here might be written rude mistakenly but I know it happens mistakenly. I always try to be very very nice to all of you. I am disappointed with myself. What I have done! I apologize to you for what I have done.
"Aren't there more words besides "selfish"?" could have been expressed as, "Thanks 5jj, but I'm looking for something more specific."
5jj then made what I would take as a mildly irritated response, which would make me wary of following up with another expression of dissatisfaction. This would have been a good time to be conciliatory.
You go, "Thanks 5j, to be honest I am not satisfied with your answer." That could have gone without saying. "To be honest" can be taken the wrong way. "I'm not satisfied with your answer (and believe me, I mean that!)" is not the way to say, "Sorry, I didn't mean to be rude. I was only asking for more opinions."
I've noticed this "I'm not satisfied with your answer" before. Don't write it. No doubt you mean, "Thank you, but that's not exactly the word I'm looking for." To the person receiving your response, it means "Your answer sucks; I expected better".
That's my opinion for what it's worth. You are right about students not necessarily having the linguistic skills of a seasoned diplomat.
I will definitely follow your advice. Thank you so much.
