    Imagine if you will..... everything is the same except...... you have an uncanny knack for telling exactly what other people are thinking about you when engaged in conversation.

    Not the words in their minds, but their emotion. Imagine that you can just tell with 100% certainty what someone else is feeling about you.....

    Joy?
    Fear?​
    Love?​
    Deceit?​

    Horny?



    What if this kind of empathy was shared by your gender? :eusa_think:

    How about your species? :eusa_think:




    Would YOUR life be different? :eusa_think:




    :eusa_think: Would a "Nicest Rack in the Office" vote remain inappropriate if the winners knew what all the boys were really thinking?

    I know exactly when a man is undressing me with his eyes. Happens every day. Lol

    I would not want to know but more importantly I would not want anyone to know what I was feeling. I have mastered the art of pretending to listen and care, when the whole while all I hear is the Charlie Brown teacher saying "wa wa wa.." People at work think I'm so empathetic simply because I nod in agreement while actually I am making up my grocery list in my head.

    Well, I would like a better idea. It always floors me when I find out the truth later.

    After awhile I think it would get pretty boring but you would know for certain who your real friends were.

    I'd like it. I would be able to make whatever adjustments I needed in order to get my point across.

    A fellow with the talent to empathize accurately would make a lot of money in sales....

    Probably break a few hearts along the way too ;)

    I would only use my powers for good. Never evil.
