I Am a People Watcher

Everyday Business Casual Voyeurs 2,371 People

    I am very much a people watcher

    and have been for a multitude of years. I love how they act and react in certain situations. Many times they do not surprise me with their interactions between each other. No, I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist, or counselor but just enjoy people and is a hobby of mine.

    I Learn From Them

    I learned a lot from observing people and how the react. Everyone has a unique ability, and by observing them and finding their super power, I feel hopeful.

    I could look out a window

    and watch people for hours. It's so strangely entertaining, even if they aren't really doing anything. I love catching them doing things they hope no one sees.

    Occasionally this can be fun

    because you can psychoanalyze people from a distance. My parents and I used to do this a lot at Malls because it was sort of interesting to observe. Personally, i sometimes ponder about life and i came to the conclusion that in life there are 7 billion people on the planet we...

    Whenever I am in an airport

    or at a train station I find myself just watching other people wondering where they are setting off to or where have they just been. Does anyone else find themselves doing this?

    It is fun and entertaining.

    I also always had the idea to put webcams all over the house. That would be interesting.

    There is a very real interdependence between

    people here and everywhere which is both fascinating and frustrating. The way this exists in personal economics follows a certain pattern, giving time to work for a payment. As an artist, at your exhibition, you study people to see their impression of what you have created, and...

    Attention To Detail

    I am a people watcher. I do this in everyday life. For the past 6 years, it's even helped me make a living. My skill has gotten better over these past few years, but it is always something I can get better at. You can learn a lot by just watching people. You can learn to read...

    I am very observant and intuitive

    when it comes to people and their motives. A lot of this comes from my empathy but also a lot of people watching!

    I have always been a people watcher.

    One of my favorite things to do is sit at a park and just observe. I'm a writer, so I get a lot of ideas watching people. Not in a creepy way, mind you...just observational.

    I am a late bloomer with the social skills.

    What I've watched over the years at work has helped some, as far as watching how people handle conflict and other things. I like to watch these things so I have a clue and some confidence about how to handle certain situations.

    My Wife Is A Flirt

    My wife is a bit of a flirt, it spices things up and makes for good times...when we take a getaway down to the gulf she likes to walk out on the balcony in just a towel, and " accidently" let the towel fall off. She also likes to go out for dinner wearing a short skirt, so we can...

    Always on the outside looking in.

    Although Ii am a people watcher, the reason I couldn't avoid joining this group is that it reminded me of Chris914.  The lampshade just made me think naughty thoughts.

    little hands curled up like dead spiders,

    batted around in the air by some invisible cat. she's skillfully parroting others' voices... rapidly cycling through pieces of conversations, like tv channels.

    Love To People Watch In All Sorts Of Situations

    Saw a guy today while waiting for class to start. He was talking to a girl he had just met (they were perfectly within earshot). He stumbled on his words and his body language was all fidgety. It was obvious that he kinda liked her. He even made a feeble attempt to ask her...

    One of the greatest things I love about college.

    Sitting almost anywhere on campus and watching everyone go by. Some laughing, some are alone, some are in groups, every once in a awhile someone will miss a step and look around and hopes nobody saw them.

    Everywhere I go. I'm fascinated by the human

    form in all it's grotesque & beautiful glory. Skinny,fat, fit, fake, ├╝ber fat, ugly, captivating, plastic pretty. Movement, body language, composition, tone, smoothness, roughness, aura... I wish I could sketch all I see, but I'm shite at Art :)

    As a boy and young man I did quite a bit of

    people watching in ways that would not be socially acceptable. I have long since outgrown that particular vice but I am still a people watcher. Now days I do most of it sitting on a bench at the mall just watching shoppers go to and fro.

    when a rather butch rough looking woman drove into the car park, without thinking I uttered the words "Good god she's got the face like a back end of a bus". My dad sniggered. I added in a creepy tone "I eat small children heh heh", to which he replied "and probably a few...

    I am amazed. I am not some creepy stalker, like I have been called. Human nature, and the way someone lives is just captivating. I am not trying to freak somebody out, I just like to watch. A lot of times I have no one to talk to or socialize with, so I begin to watch people. It...

    I become a third person character in my life,

    experiencing positive and negative human connections, all through the eyes of others, never becoming the center of my own world. All of this insight into the experiences of others, feeds on my soul.

    I observe people because I'm a Pisces.

    That's what I'm good at, apparently. I like reading people's thoughts through actions. It seems like I can still read through them even if they put up a thick barrier.

    It's so interesting to just sit

    and watch. Mainly because people reveal a lot more than they realise without saying a word. Even the toughest people reveal their vulnerable side when they think no one is watching.

    People watching is the only reason I agree to

    go to the mall. I love to hang out on the second floor and watch people come off the escalator. It's a little surprising how many times you'll see someone trip and almost fall on their face because because they're too busy staring at their phone.
