How To Think Of Me

One thing that I've heard people complain about is that some other person(s) have attributed some feeling that the complainant says that they do not hold. Usually this is something negative, like contempt, hatred or jealousy, but it covers a wide gamut. But attributions, such as "you think I'm stupid," for instance, at not much different than a lot of other supposedly descriptive statements that offer much more insight into the person making the statement, than the thing allegedly being described. In this sense, demanding that someone see you as you wish to be seen is a request to replace their understanding of their circumstances with one's own.
