    Re: Made Of Me

    There are two possibly relevant meanings of 'make of', so it depends on context.

    1 Educate/form: 'Six months in the army will make a man of you'.

    2 Conclude/work out: 'Look at this coded message. What do you make of it?'

    So, in your case, the speaker could be saying (meaning 1) 'I've developed in ways that had nothing to do with what you were trying to do - to groom me according to what you wanted. Or he/she could be saying 'there are things about me that you don't understand' (meaning 2).
