Do you believe that anyone knows you better than you know yourself?

Ironically, anyone who said no likely feels this way because there could be a disconnection between how they view themselves and how they communicate themselves. If you know yourself really well, then your version of yourself will likely be the same.

If you think you know yourself but actually don't know then the part that is unknown isn't a detail about you but knowing how to help people understand the detail. "I was just saying because..." ... Because you don't feel understood and are trying to

Explain yourself. Learning how people see you can help you to learn how to communicate to them differently. Communication clarification doesn't start with trying to make them speak your language, it starts with learning to speak their language.

Everyone else probably knows me quite differently than I know myself

Sometimes I find that my husband does.

It seemed impossible, until I found that someone.

I have yet to meet a special person to which I can entrust the dark confines of my mind, to which I do not feel a secret should be kept. I may find that person maybe not in this life, but the next.

Impossible. The information I have about myself stems from being with myself every second of my life, nobody else has been, let alone participate in my inner emotional life that only I can feel.

My wife. She knows my best side, tolerates my not-quite-bright side and forgives what's left.

No. Even the people closest to me don't know every detail, even though I'm pretty open and easy to know. I'm not sure any one of the voices in my head really knows what is going on in there at any given moment.

No. I only let people know what I want them to know, nothing more.

Nope, I would say very few people know me well and none certainly know me better than I know myself.

Epistemologically, that's impossible. Someone can know us differently than we know ourselves, but not better/worse. Just some background on what I'm saying:

Yes...God. He knows me better than I know myself for sure. He knows what's best for me and my family and has helped us in lots of beneficial ways.
