What is a casual and tangible term for generalizing?
Don't [generalise] your experience thinking that others have the same.
So far I have found "assume" which is good, but I was wondering if there is an even more casual, tangible, and colloquial word for it.
Edit: I think project and generalize make sense but I would like a more colloquial phrase for that if available as if I am talking to a friend.
To explain further, let's assume that John and Julie are working at a company. Julie says something that implies John also is making low money like Julie. Then, John says:
How are you so sure I am also making low money? Don't generalize/project your experience to others.
