superpowered intuition...

I have always been kind of quiet, I sit back and watch people interact. I observe. Well, it doesnt' take me long before I "know" people. After talking to them a few times and watching them, i have a character summed up of them. It's not judging-as in the last thread i posted-but more of an intuition-based fact repertoire that I have in my mind. It warns me of people, lets me know that we'll be friends forever, gives me insight on how to pursue a relationship. But I feel this is a power that everyone has to an extent but mine is very strong. It's wierd because I've tested this out many times-you may think I'm wacko-and I'm always around 95% correct on my findings. Has anyone ever heard of this? Do other people feel they have this or do you think everyone has this power? Now I'm starting to be more cautious of my intuition and it limits me on my friends. It's really hard to find people I trust.

I think people have it if they let themselves be aware of it...

If you have found that you are 95% correct why are you not using it?

That's like having a car and never drivng it.

Use your gifts.

lazydazy, i have a similiar thing. when i'm around people, all i'm doing is evaluating them. i do it quickly, watching their body language, and interaction with people. some people i discuss it with, say to me that how can i judge someone so quickly, and that i should give them time. still, i can make an overall judgement very quick. its not accurate all the time, like u said too. tell me, were ur parents, or aither of them, very critical of you and did u always feel they watching over you? like surveilance cameras?

I think we have it, and I think it is our upbringing that tunes it. Like the children of alcoholics, or abuse, they walk in the room and feel it, vs walk in. We learned this to protect our selves, I find mine to be most accurate, and try to honor it all the time. Some times I scare my self with the correctness of it, and yes it is difficult to make friends but then you sense the circle, and move on. I get the feelings about entire communities, what is tough is when your partner knows your right on, and tries to fight you. But they know you know, even to the point some people hide from you when up to no good

guest_guest...i think my parents were critical of me but it was more like they were critical of everyone. My father has this thing for the more "dynamic personality" you know the person with charisma and points them out to me all of the time like "you have to have that in life". But it always made me feel quite small because around him I felt like I didnt have that until I left the nest. He always was the life of the party and I looked up to him for that and then I found out it was because he was all hopped up on cocaine. Then I got really depressed for a time being and I guess I lost my charisma which was so often pointed out by family members. It made me feel like I wasn't worthy because of my small personality. But now I'm back hey hey hey...
I think when you have a problem with drugs or alcohol that you become very perceptive of how others see you and you become more aware of others actions. Whether it be noticing how they react to you when your on drugs or wondering if they are and knowing the signs that occur to you also. So I grew up around it, maybe it's a little of paranoia. I saw my dad evaluating people and I was a very quiet child. I sat back alot and watched everyone elses activities. I think from doing it for so long I improved it more and more, I see patterns in people.
that is so true...my friends just know that i know that something is going on with them, they are up to no good. I notice things that my boyfriend doesn't and when he tries to be all perceptive of people I know when he is way off. I think this perception is most powerful when you are so in tune with your body and mind. I think my boyfriend is way off because he is not in tune, he has to open up and express himself before it can ever be fine tuned.
My friends look up to me for it but I do think they get a little scared. I think it's because they wonder what I think of them and value my opinion.

I too have very highly tuned "first instincts" of people.
I guess is it a protective measure we have learned, but it is damned useful.
It was also VERY useful in business - it saved me many a time!

Wow toffee. Were you reading some old stuff or what? Holy crap this thread is from 2 years ago.

I've found that it's dangerous to prejudge people like this. I should know. I do it all the time. Best example I can give is the past two weeks that I've been sitting in front of the theater. I watch countless couples go in to watch a movie and I was immediately grouping them into categories based on their appearances. Which guys were jerks, which girls were sluts, which guys were gay... it helps to pass the time, but it also conjures up some ugly thoughts.

Hey, Im kind of new to this but thought I would give it a go. Im not quite sure wats wrong with me, Ive been thinking about therapy, but I have a mask hiding my real self that my parents dont really think there's anything wrong with me. Im pretty young, 16. Im not gonna go deep into my problems now, as I really wouldnt know wat to say, but I just wanted to say I have this sort of instinct also. Ive had it since I was very young. I didnt have friends at all, well not until later on, nearer to secondary school. So all I would do is watch other people, watch their situations and actions. I usually know what people are thinking by the expressions on their face or just by looking at their eyes, their movements etc. I can usually tell why some people do the things they do and what they're usually trying to gain from it. Having this "gift" can b handy bu it has got me into alot of trouble also. If I feel someone is a threat or is fake (like me), etc, I'll turn a cold shoulder to them, I wont trust them, avoid conv with them and even tell them to back off and leave me alone, so Ive gained quite a few enemies, but I do agree on it being a good thing, it has helped me out now and again.

Yep. There was a time a few months ago when you actually thought I had something worth listening to. 8^P

I read this thread and had to respond. I also feel I can figure out a person and what they are all about in a short amount of time. This "intuition" sometimes helps and sometimes doesn't. It makes me very wary of those I choose to be my friends. Is it me, or do you any of you find most of the people you meet today are not "real"? Sometimes I feel like an alien from another planet. Why can't people just be themselves?? Why do we all wear these masks and hide our true selves from the outside world?? I can pretty much say that for me, what you see is what you get. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. It's very hard to find true friends in this world.

I still want to know why toffee was reading this ancient thread. I like how the dates take a sudden 2 year jump between posts.

I thought that all the threads older than about a year ago were lost? I thought that the site took a nosedive and we lost everything, had to start from scratch. Interesting...

I don't know. This site's database is very odd. IThe last time I went digging for threads, it looked like I was geteting them based on the amount of bandwidth the server would give me. The first time I tried I only got threads dating back 6 months. I tried again later that night and found over a years worth in my search.

That was about half a year ago so I don't know if anything has changed since then. I've never had the urge to check. Have you seen the amount of threads that this site has had? It insane. Then again, I guess that means that this site fits in with the rest of us.
