What does PYSIMP stand for?

Put yourself in my place

Someone who uses PYSIMP to mean "put yourself in my place" is hoping you'll see things from their perspective. This acronym is most often used during an argument or debate, as an attempt to get you to pause and consider the other person's thinking.

Of course, if someone wants you to understand their thinking, they probably should not use an obtuse acronym. If someone sent you PYSIMP and you didn't understand it, ask them to PTSIYP (put themself in your place) and maybe just write out their message next time.
