    instead of working to try to be it really.

    I Can See Through You

    Four years ago, my husband and I were at the petrol station in Singapore. While waiting in the car for my husband to finish pumping petrol into his vehicle, I noticed a bluetaxi parked at the side of the petrol station. Next to the taxi, I saw a Caucasian man speaking on his...

    I tend to observe people from afar,

    watch how they interact with others and listen to the things they say until I feel I have a good feel of their personality. It's hard for me to jump into conversation with people otherwise. I'm picky with the people I allow into my life and doing this helps weed out the...

    If I were to observe you,

    what would you let me discover about you?

    What's funny is that the many people

    that decidedly checked "I Am An Observer" and then posted a story here became participants, not observers.

    I'm that friend who sits

    and watches. One who observes. I don't exactly like confrontation, unless I really need to. That comes not so useful as a hair stylist, since as far as I know, MUST be loud and have a large conversation about God knows what. That is not me. I like to instead watch people on how...

    I'm Watching You..............

    When I meet people or go into a new place for the 1st time, I don't really talk much unless I am spoken to. It looks like I'm just shy, but really, I'm observing the whole place. I can listen to 2 or 3 different conversations at once. And I listen to everything. You might think I...

    Watcher. That's what my mom always called

    In social groups like at school I guess I'm

    I always prefer observing

    or just listening to other people's behavior. I feel like I learn so much more that way. Some people are so centered in themselves that they're oblivious to the action of acknowledging others. In my cause, I'm love acknowledging others perhaps too much.

    I never knew I will be an observer

    for the rest of my life. Before, I was just a normal person who never knew I was always being observed by the people around but see, novels are powerful. Books are. Since I've read novels it changed the way I think and see people around. I am very empathic. It just came to me.

    Many people claim to want to meet friends

    and to have deep conversations yet they simply just want to say what they want to say. How can they expect to achieve those things if they aren't even interested in what the other has to say or think? Communication is a two way street, isn't it?

    Observer. I used to think

    that this was my ultimate definition - on the sidelines watching the unraveling of society as it swirled and churned around me. Now I realize that a compulsion to observation is probably more of a symptom of a kind of introversion. Many great scientists are great observers, and...
