I am a really good “people reader”. I pick up on people’s patterns, habits, quirks, etc. I love to analyze. Well, as long as it doesn’t have to do with numbers, I love to analyze. I like to formulate in my head reasons why people do what they do or handle things the way they do or think how they think. I find people, myself included, interesting. I’m also very good at getting people to “dump” on me. It’s beneficial in two ways; they can talk about all the things bothering them and it satiates my curiosity about what’s bothering and going on with them. I’ve mentioned a lot that I am very curious by nature, it’s true. Some people can say I’m nosey, but the information is not used for anything but my own curiosity. I am a sponge and if it doesn’t have to do with numbers and it’s something I am interested in, I want to learn and immerse myself in it.
I know not everyone likes to talk about their issues, it can be quite uncomfortable and I, too, will have moments where I’ll need to shut down for a bit and not talk to anyone. That usually happens when someone pisses me off enough to where I can’t do anything about it, sometimes I’ll cry and it’s not because I am sad. People may say breathe, count to 10, go for a walk, or calm down. If I am bloody pissed and any of those things are said, you will be the victim of the rage that’s just boiling beneath. If I want to bitch, let me bitch. I don’t think anyone should be told how to handle their anger unless they are a danger to themselves or others. Or they ask and search themselves on how to improve the way they react to people and stressors.
I hate when I can’t figure someone out. Their whole psyche and being confuses me. Their thought processes lack complete sense. Their inability to pick up clues that are put in front of their faces, they blatantly ignore. I really want to bang my own head against the wall hoping I can understand their reasoning and choices.
It drives me crazy when I don’t or can’t understand something. Even if it’s something abstract, I can realize that or learn that it is and it would calm me. My only guess is temporary insanity and that they’re beyond my realm of knowledge on psychiatric disorders.
Just my guess.
