It may seem like a special ability in todays world of self serving instant gratification fullfilling people who have a hard time realizing they are sharing this space with a billion other people, but I do tend to believe that most adults have this trait.
People have learned to read subtle facial cues and body language because we are social creatures. That is why you have to see someone to do it. When I was eighteen I thought I was special too. And I think you are in that you are aware of those around you and that they have feelings like you do.

I'd have to look into your eyes, the people i tried it on were face to face. I don't blame you for declaring this B.S. you are entitiled to your opinions and free to express them. If there was a such thing as proof on this subject, believe me it wpould be on here, unfortunately it's all on a first hand basis.
