I am the opposite of you, Whaaa. I am pretty good at reading people, their intentions, where their problems stem from (marital, financial, etc.),
but when it comes to my interaction with them or how they feel about me, I am terrible at it. I may feel the other person isn't listening to me, but
I find out later that they were paying quite a bit of attention, or I may feel that I said something to offend the other person, but there was no
offense at all.
I guess I am better at looking at situations like that from the outside or if I am involved, maybe my own emotions blur the "signal" for me.
Someone mentioned in another thread (I think) about meeting or seeing people that you take an instant dislike to. I have met approximately 5 people
in my life like this. They didn't do anything to me, they didn't do anything to anyone around me, but there is a gut-wrenching feeling of wanting
to out-and-out smack them. And my inner thought is always, "Why? I don't even know them and I have never seen them before!"
