Know the feeling :wink:If you mean psychologically aware about how other people think, then yes, but I need to know them at least moderately well. I can tell exactly the way people I've known well for a longer time think. Sometimes, when I experience something, my thoughts go "Person X would definitely do/say/think Y about that..." Sometimes I do it for multiple people at once.
It tends to annoy people when I reveal to them my view of their views of situations. But I find I'm very rarely wrong.
Some people are easier to figure out than others, though.
I call it dumbing down. I think the social people reckon is adapting to the demands of the job. It is hard work, but when I do writing I treat it as a skill to appeal to several different types of readers simultaneously.u know the thing where they say adults dumb down where-as kids are in that 'growth phase burst''...
i had the chance to observe this process recently as i entered a job,
and came to the conclusion that it is really false,...
as adults actually take on 'processing' related to the political environment of place.
i decided to keep light... as i have beeen optimizing for so long it does not make sense to 'vulentarily' take-on a "dumbing down"
(only one example of how we INTPs can deregulate life maze by our mass of caluculation)
--afterall we are only rats, an sometimes rats in our own experiment--
This is very like me - and it seems really odd to be so good at reading certain things but at the same time be so trusting. Why do you think that is?I wish I could say I were that aware of people around me. When someone is interacting with me, I tend to overthink their body language and put too much meaning to every move they make or tone of voice; however I can see peoples' shadows exceptionally easily. It's not difficult for me to tell when someone is unhappy, faking emotion or the way they feel and what's going through their head- As long as I can observe them for a little while in an environment where they're comfortable. The bad thing is that I'm extremely trusting of the people around me.
I know I'm trusting to a fault.
I can't say I know why this would be with you but I know exactly why for me.This is very like me - and it seems really odd to be so good at reading certain things but at the same time be so trusting. Why do you think that is?
