    Question Black and white or grey?

    Are you a 'black and white' or 'grey' person?

    IE When your wife, or partner, says something do you take it as face value or are you expected to mindread your partner's thoughts (although they may be different to what your partner actually said)?

    Yes, aren't most married men?

    In our household we have come to refer to this as a conflict between "literal truth" and "emotional truth".

    No, of course I don't actually watch hockey on TV all the time, but that's what it feels like to her, so that's her emotional truth.

    I may point out that this is demonstrably untrue in any literal sense, but I do so at my peril.

    The only acceptable answer is

    Yes Dear.
