This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
It is grammatically correct and it would re-assure the target that their understanding is correct.

...where the highlighted entry applies in OP's case (your understanding = what you think).
This shift in meaning from the generic ability to understand in #1 to the specific thing understood in #3 is quite common in English, and can be seen with many other words...
...where highlighted words are implicitly "particularised" to refer to the specific concepts following.
