English term or phrase: to cross one's signals
This writer find it very difficult to know what to do or how to behave with others. In a sense, he has his signals crossed: ha can't grasp what other people are all about.(non riesce a capire le intenzioni degli altri?)

Italian translation:gli giungono segnali contrastanti
Explanation:
non è molto facile tradurre l'espressione non conoscendo tutto il testo. Potrebbe anche essere che il suo atteggiarsi verso gli altri è contraddittorio, incostante
L'espressione mi ricorda una frase che si usa al telefono: interferenza (we have a crossed line)
Forse questo ti può aiutare.
