Bluffing: A Deaf superpower..

Nope a negative coping mechanism that's all.  Deaf adopting HI strategies ?  We have done this all our lives.  The problem is you can't bluff successfully, you just THINK you do...

I wonder if they realise, like the HoH,  they are fooling themselves and no-one else ?  These days better we fess up and don't pretend to be hearing, it doesn't work anyway !  so why do it ?  It's not a skill or a virtue, it's being silly... and contributes to misunderstandings,  and the very bad awareness we complain about.

Communication suicide in action.
