         More Information VRP: I don't think that she was finished giving her report. 
VRP: I don't think that she was finished giving her report. Green: I think that she had more to say on the subject.
Saying what I, "don't think" is yet to commit to what I do think, what I do believe.

"Don't think" leaves the decoding job up to the hearer, as in, "You should fill in the blanks in my sentence and know what to do." In this language model, that style is VRP, with the speaker behaving in a paternalistic fashion both as a Rescuer of the person giving the report and as a Persecutor of the hearer of the statement.
Green Language is a language of committment. In this sentence the committment is in saying what one does Think, free of "shoulds."
