I realised I have been using word "resonate" a lot lately but mostly in regards to people. For example:
I noticed I resonate with the type of people who _____ the most.
For some reason I decided to check The Free Dictionary for the definition that reads:
- To exhibit or produce resonance or resonant effects.
- To evoke a feeling of shared emotion or belief: "Bethune projected a strong presence of achievement and pride that resonated among African Americans" (Audrey Thomas McCluskey).
- To correspond closely or harmoniously: "Symbolism matters, especially if the symbols resonate with the larger message" (William Greider).
As you can see there is no mention of people and when I asked my friends (US), they said they would never use it in regards to a person.
Is there anything that I can replace it with? I don't want to get into a bad habit if the usage is incorrect.
I'm looking for something on the same "sophistication level" unlike to get on well or connect well with.
