Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Kind"

The meaning of "Kind" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does "she's one of your kind" mean?
A: It means in some way she's like you. Maybe you have similar attitudes or same ethnicity. It depends on context but somehow you both have something important in common
Q: What does It's always great to meet kind people like you mean?
A: It means the person who said the statement is saying you are a kind person, and they're glad to have met you.
Q: What does What kind of person would make the worst boss mean?
A: Both are fine I think. However, for me, what you wrote 'What kind of person would make the worst boss?' sounds the slightly more natural. I think this sort of thing would depend on preference - everyone is different.

But, why I think it is the most natural is because usually when you ask this question, you're asking what characteristics of a person, what habits, what personality traits would make a bad boss. This sort of thing 'makes' a person. For example:

"What kind of person would make the worst boss?"
Answer: "Someone who is impatient."

Being 'impatient' would MAKE someone a bad boss.
If you asked: "What kind of person would be the worst boss."
The answer would be something a bit more intrinsic of the person; and would be very highly opinionated; for example: Answer: "A man." (depends on preference of the person). Or the answer could be a certain race "A person from the country ____".

Short answer: Both of the ways you wrote it are very interchangeable, but the slight difference would just be one is more natural than the other. But this is just my opinion and everyone probably has different opinions about this!
Q: What does we don't kind of understand mean?
A: It should be "We kind of don't understand." (We don't really understand)

It means you understand a little bit, but you don't understand most of it.

It has a feeling like 딱히, 정확히
Q: What does : Where it's both familiar and different, and we don't kind of understand if it's entirely dead or entirely alive. mean?
A: It's both familiar and different because a doll is modeled after a human, but it's not a living thing, which makes it the same like us except that it's alive.

The second part we don't understand if it's dead or alive is because we play and do voice over with dolls, giving it a life when it's actually suppose to be dead.

Hope this helps

Q: Please show me example sentences with kind of.
A: "Kind of" just means "a little bit." So "I can kind of do it" means "I can do it a little bit, but I'm not very good at it."

Usually when it's used with the verb "like" it means you don't want to be completely direct.

So "I kind of like her" literally means "I think I like her but I'm not sure yet" or "I like her a little bit."
But in most cases, it means "I really like her, but I'm too shy/embarrassed to say it directly to you."

I hope that makes sense!

Q: What is the difference between What kind of vegetables and What kinds of vegetables and What kinds of vegetable ?
A: A "kind of vegetable" means carrots, lettuce, and so on. Whether or not there is an S after "vegetable" makes no difference in meaning, but it's important whether or not there is an S after "kind". "Kinds of vegetables" means more than one. for example, "What kind of vegetable grows underground" is asking for one answer. "What kinds of vegetables grow underground" is asking for more than one answer.
Q: What is the difference between what kind of and what sort of ?
A: They can often mean the same thing, however there are some small differences.

Kind of : Usually refers to a large category of something. For example, dogs. "What kind of dog is that?"

Sort of: Usually refers to something more specific than "kind of". For example, money. "What sort of prices do they charge?"

The difference is not too great, and if you use it incorrectly you will still be understood. :)
Q: What is the difference between a kind of and a sort of ?
A: Both "A kind of" and "A sort of" can be used to mean the same thing. "A kind of" gives the type or category of something (the group it belongs to) "A dog is a kind of animal". "A sort of" can mean the same thing, but sounds a little vague and uncertain. "A dog is a sort of animal". "A kind of" or A type of" are more commonly used in this way than "A sort of". We also use "sort of" and "kind of" to describe something to be a little like something else, but not very much like it. For example: "The dog is kind of brown" or the "dog is sort of brown". In this case "sort of" is more commonly used than "kind of".
Q: What is the difference between kind and sort and type ?
A: Oh, easy! As I said before, Kind of and Sort of both have the same meaning just different words to use. "A type of something" Is a term used to describe something. "Calico is a type of cat", "An almond is a type of nut" and "A bi-plane is a type of airplane" You say this to take a complicated word/term and make it easier to understand. like "A term is a type of 'saying'" Hope this helped! I can explain further if you need
