What Is a Misunderstanding?
A misunderstanding is a situation when you understand someone else incorrectly, or when others understand you incorrectly. Misunderstandings happen when someone believes something about you that is not true, or vice versa. For example, someone may believe that you did something which you did not do, or that you said something which you did not say, or that you meant something which you did not mean. Misunderstandings may lead to disagreements with others.
