What does infer mean?
To infer is to draw a conclusion from a statement or from data. It is the result of logical deduction, not guesswork. For example, one might say, "I have not heard a reply to my job application, and I infer that I did not get the job." Although you have not been explicitly told you did not get the job, you reason that had you been successful you would have been told when to start, and conclude on the basis of the fact that you have heard nothing that you were not successful. That is inferring.
