Yes, exactly. This is a good example of something I have written about before - how what I call the different "wiring" for poly and mono folk causes massive challenges to finding common understanding through communication. What might seem to us to be a great analogy just does not compute for others.
I used to put a huge amount of effort trying to persuade others about the logic of my feelings - it didn't work. Sometimes you just have to accept that different people think differently and you have to accept things on faith rather than fundamentally understanding it.
