I Read People Quite Well

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 752 People

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Everything Is Hidden Somewhere

    I am sensitive. I can read from faces, from gestures, from body-language, from eyes. Everything is hidden there. It's not easy to deceive me. Because i read wangles from the behavior. I appreciate those who are yourselves, even with their vices, because i know they don't lie to...

    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.  ...

    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...
