Cannot find the exact quote; hope you can help! It goes something like this: There are six people present in any conversation, the people conversing, the people we imagine we are conversing to, and the people & experiences that shape those people. (?) Thanks so much for your assistance.

This is all I could find that even comes close:
"...what you said, what you think you said, what I think you said. Then there is what I said, what I think I said, and what you think I said. The further apart those 6 things are, the less we have communicated."
"As they say, there are always six understandings in any conversation (what I said, what I think I said, what you think I said, what you said, what you think you said, what I think you said)..."

The quote was more specific to six people in a conversation. Perhaps I heard an adaptation of the original quote myself! Thanks for the research!

Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is.
