Ugh, I am prone to this. It's horrible. Especially when the wrong assumption isn't something neutral like what time the coffee shop closes, but something socially awkward and embarrassing.

Yeah, lol. I never check the facts on every day matters, although I have a good hunch about asking questions, such as "might that place be closed?" and then it's usually others who do the dirty work, and if they don't I'm forced to. But for the most part I do overlook the practical details in place of generalities despite my good instinct, and I think it's an N v S thing
