With a circus mind, that's running wild...

I was saying recently that I do not know the etiquette for if you get recced - do you thank the reccer publically, or privately, or not thank them at all? I just don't know.

I don't know whether I should say thank you to someone taking icons I've made. I do say thank you to feedback for fan fiction, because usually comments are slightly longer than "Taking #5. Will credit", and for me, there's usually a great deal less fan fiction comments than icon ones too - when I've got upwards of ten comments for icons, I feel pretty stupid saying thank you to every comment.

I think this is the largest problem I have in regards to communicating with others. I'm pretty good at communicating what I want, but I am terrible at reading what the collective other might want or need - what the unspoken societal rules are, you know? I fear it's how I've made some of the silliest mistakes of my life - simply being unaware of what I should and shouldn't do as the community dictates. Not knowing these things makes me feel even more neurotic than usual.

Do you ever feel like there's a hive mind and you're not in it?
