Like if they aren't understanding you because you speak in long paragraphs while they speak in short sentences. This isn't actually about outside thinking, it's communications.

I tend to ramble myself irl sometimes and frankly even I wouldn't be able to understand myself when I do. We might never be perfect at it, but I do think we can get better at being more succinct speakers with practice and/or input from helpful, positive people.
Oh you also misunderstood me?Yes I've communication problems. I think maybe one of the cause(among many others) is 'thinking in different ways'. Normally in real life i speak shortly even maybe too shortly.
I wrote long here because my English isn't good enough. So i had to use synonyms of some words like 'fool-stupid'.
