Not tired of it but I can read people well and often know their motives more than they would prefer.

It doesn't make life simple that's for sure. I look at others sometimes and realise how simple their minds are, a sort of oblivion that is void of such 'sense' or awareness.

I guess some of us are meant to think more than others. The perceptive are more aware and IMO think more deeply, sort of philosophy, and are more interesting.

I don't think I can actually read minds but I have an uncanny ability to be able to tell when people are lying or bluffing. They give off a kind of "loser vibe" that gives them away.

That's why a large part of my income comes from the Texas holdem tables at the Indian Casino not far from my home.

Give your ability a test at the gaming tables near you.

Or see if you can tell what woman is attracted to you in a social setting. That may be more of a case of body language, however.

Its not that I am reading people minds, but very often I know what they are thinking about. To answer your question, I am not tired of this.

I am tired of waiting to meet another person who can do the same.

I don't get tired of reading people
It helps me understand them and myself better
And if I don't like what I read from them
Then it's my problem
It just means that I see a part of me that I don't like or don't wanna face
It's pretty fun sometimes because i'ts just like mind reading

One of the things I like to do with people now a days is being able to test their mental capacity. An active brain would be able to determine what someone means when they use very little abstract words to explain say.... Something that was discussed earlier, and by the use of a certain word would bring up the entire conversation. Even though you never used that word in the entire discussion. Days, months, years, or even decades could pass. And how you would describe something would immediately click in their brains.... and further the discussion without having a recap of sorts.

Almost like an interrogative mindset would do in order to get information out of people. Mind #s can catch people up in mid sentence and even a single word can trigger something revealing about their life. It isn't so much the facial expressions, the movement of their arms, or the stillness in their legs. But a combination of them would lead me to read people much easier.

Today for example I went through another interview. Almost immediately I could read the conversation happening between the two people sitting in front of me, even though one was speaking to me directly while they made eye contact with each other. I could just see how they were sizing me up for the position. But that one setback. That one minor issue that... for them is completely significant, had been shot down. While at the same time the other person saw through it with a bit of an uneasy look about his face. (The classic "I told you so" look on one face with the other saying "this is all we have left." Even though you know what the look means... it is the ability to put words behind these faces that tells a telling story itself.)

What was it? I was being interviewed for the position of a handy man. (They can call it what ever they want... Housemen groundskeeper, a carpenter greensmen, a porter.) But it was rather clear as to what they wanted me to do.

I went in doing absolutely NO homework on their company. None what so ever. The office they resided in seemed to be rather off putting. Almost as if it was a shady operation. But from what I could tell from these people was that times were changing. And it was finally changing for the betterment of their company. They may not have their own true base of operations complete with a repairman, dock, bay, and storage. But they seemed to be doing business mostly with independent contractors. My role is to help these contractors get in line and complete jobs in a timely manner.

One of the little slips of information that I read from them was the problem with the off putters themselves. Stuff not being completed, calling in multiple times. Things going missing and property getting damaged. The interview was for only ten minutes and they mainly went over a little bit on my background, and told me my starting wage. Asked me if I had a license. I think they have too many questionable drivers that I am about to see first hand, or that they just want everyone to be a driver. But there was so much more that wasn't being said that I picked up on.

Another point would be about my accident with my taxi almost 2 years ago. I was found technically at fault. And one of the major issues with driving a company vehicle, and above all not owning a vehicle... is constraints, and legal issues... All concerning money.

So I explained it to them flat. I am a blunt person and I never use the saying to excuse me from anything. It is just the way that I am. I told them I will be going to college in Spring and what I ultimately want to become. I made my intentions very clear.

And what happened? Even just the phone call back from them to set up my first working day was enough to tell me that no one else wanted to even try for the job. And I am the best candidate.... even though I don't even consider myself a professional in the job classification what so ever. I didn't fake my interview. I know most of the stuff involved with carpet cleaning, and setting up houses for displays. I understand what it is like to rent, and own a house or apartment.

Sometimes I can sense that others have been talking about me behind my back, or that, in other words, they share opinions about me that they do not express to me directly. Sometimes I can detect that others are not being genuine with me, or that they distance themselves from me. This is all I am really able to sense.

You will eventually be able to tell what they think about others. The more pain, anguish, suffering, and hard times you put yourself through with other people... The more you will be able to predict things more clearly.

It's like that old saying "when people start running with the dogs they start smelling like them."

Because I have been around self righteous, cunning, dark, unstable, mentally challenged, blind, stealing, drug abusing, wife beating, and child abuse fiends I have been able to detect a lot of stuff. It is the way they talk, act, and even look how I can determine their train of thought.

In my case it’s not exactly “reading minds” but mostly hearing others people thoughts and feelings. It is overwhelming and most of the times frustrating. I have a family and lots of friends and I find myself in many cases feel very lonely. It’s not nice to “hear” the deepest feelings of everyone, especially if it is someone you care. Sometimes I hope that there is someone out there that can really relate and understand how hard this is.

Recap of the first week. Holy crap was I right about their drivers. And I was correct about how many lazy people I already have to deal with. They don't exactly call in every day. But damn they move slow. Part of the problem is the workers wanting to do nothing more than a cheap trick over and over again.

Don't get me wrong now... there is at least 1 person who wants to work. But the other two? They do not want me to learn how to do their part in fear of them losing that position forever.

Everywhere I go man it is the same. I get thrown onto the team that performs the minimum. Bare minimum. And above all don't enjoy doing it.

I hate this # already. Why are people so god damn lazy?
