    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.

    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.  ...

    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 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. ...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
