These entities can either be friendly or mistrustful, open or closed. There's often not a whole lot of experienced in-betweenness with them until you begin to get to know them more, as the more even middle ground is created by the interactions of these two sides of the coin. When you do successfully navigate these tides, however, that's when things really start to kick off and happen in externally impressive ways.
Do take note of these extremely disparate ends of the spectrum and these matching experiences you have, as equal-yet-opposite extremes are very much their jam. Sometimes, that element of shared experience is where the magic's at, as even if you cannot perceive them with your eyes and ears, this tells you that they're present. ;)
