How do I deal with colleagues/supervisors who will always answer everything with:
"You know what I mean."
Even if prompted multiple times to elaborate.
It's especially confusing, if that sentence is said with basically no to little context or very vague 1 short sentence context.
I worked for a software company where this was more or less the most said sentence ever. All communication went 50% with that sentence and finger pointing on code sections.
Is there any way to force someone to elaborate about something you're lacking knowledge about.
Eg. your supervisor tells you what to do, but is so vague about what he wants the result to look like that you have no clue what your task is. Especially in the context of teamwork, where you share a task with 5 people, and the 4 other people already work as a team and know exactly what their task is. However you have no clue what you should do to not overlap with them, nor do you understand the task, because you don't have enough information about the project, the separation of tasks, the organization.
