    Social Situations

    I am good at spotting subtle changes in how others relate to me and to those around them even if I don't make them aware that I noticed.

    Reading People

    I do read people quite well.  95% of the time I can be right and 5%, I can be wrong.  I amaze myself everytime I am right, it is a good feeling.  I try not judging / reading a person from the first time we meet but just by the...

    Do It All The Time....

    I like to watch when you talk..... I read your eye movements, hand gestures, etc... I like to watch when you lie and fabricate things, you never make eye contact.... When you're nervous you fidget in your chair.... When you're mad.... How you clench your jaw......Of course...

    And it causes a lot of problems

    that never existed before. I can tell when someone is completely uninterested, bored, excited, lonely, and a vast variety of others. And in social situations, it creates problems for me. I read into people too much and scare them away, or push them away. I try to cover up my...

    I can read people in the sense of both reactions and there personalities. I can know a lot about a person in a manner of minutes. I'm also very good a manipulation. It's a natural ability and half the time I don't know i'm doing it. Still even though I didn't chose to have these...

    In a Little Bit of Time...

    I can pretty much always read a person. If I can trust them, what motivates them, what is important to them and sadly what are their insecurities. I guess that is why I did so well as a door to door sales person.

    Reading People

    Reading people really depends on what you mean. Physically I can tell what a person is feeling and thinking when I look at their face, but my perception goes deeper. I can also feel what they feel, which is a blessing and a curse at times. I often have to explain to other people...

    The "Creepy Vibe"

    It's something I've always been pretty good at - in particular, picking up what I call the 'creepy vibe'. It's something I pick up within the first few minutes of speaking to someone - the best way to describe it would be a 'slimy' feeling. It's that distinctly uneasy feeling...

    Vibrations

    When a person first stands before me I read. I pick up on Body Language. They tell you what words won't.   Look within the Eyes, an open door to their soul.   Vibrations I do feel, very strongly. Based on NEED and EXPERIENCE I learned to trust those feelings.  ...

    No Sympathy

    I understand pretty well how people work and what makes them tick. I pick up on emotions quickly. Unfortunately, I'm 100% empathy, 0% sympathy. I know what you're going through, how you're feeling, but have no ability to express it. I understand it, but have no ability to comfort...

    I Can

    Depending on how I know you, I can usually read people rather well.  It makes most people uncomfortable when I do this.  It's a talent I keep most of the time to myself.  It helps me understand people better.  It also frustrates me as well.  Espeically...

    I Choose Who I Want In My Life

    Sure, I can look at someone and feel their energy.  But there's 3 different body's of energy to read.  I'm not always in the mind set to feel any, so I do take into consideration their outward mood, body behavior, boundary lines. But that's all if I want to. ...

    It's a curse and a gift.

    It has allowed me to survive things that no way I should have. But I have try to keep my mouth shut because I read people so well I can easily hit to close to home and even though people ask my thoughts I have to be careful because sometimes the truth really hurts people.

    Absolutely, reading people takes concentration.

    The less I say about reading people the better I can read them. I do what is know as analyze people. I never forget what people say either. That is very important.
