I've discovered that I am confusing my German speaking friends with this sentence: "Ich finde die gleiche"
I intend this to be used in the manner I would use it in a normal English conversation, something like this:
Person: I just recently interacted with Betty in HR, she's a complete moron. Me: I find the same.
I have used this countless times, and, in fact, I'm pretty sure I didn't construct this usage, I'm fairly confident this is reasonably standard.
Now, my German friends tell me I should say "Ich habe die gleiche Meinung"; but, this is subtly different. I am not indicating that my actual opinion is that Betty in HR is a Moron, only that so far, my interactions with her are leading me to form an opinion that she is - is something like that.
How do I communicate this in German ?
