Do you consider yourself good at reading people and giving accurate representations of who they are ?

I think it’s always a 50/50 chance with me. There are people that I can pick up on strong aspects about their positive/negative traits, and there are some people it’s just like, “I really can’t figure that person out at all.” I hate to admit it but I’m more likely to notice more negative energy, especially what makes someone angry because I use it as like a guideline to stay safer and remember how not to piss him/her off. I think it’s normal for a person to set boundaries towards other people and know their limits to avoid confrontation.

Extroverts are generally easier to read, to a degree. So I love observing introverted people as there is often a lot more that you won't see, except in clues.

I'm interested in what's behind the obvious - I have a counselling background, so often got to see behind the surface.

Typically yes. Especially with time. The underlying always speaks to me and the surface becomes more just noise.

For me it's more like 80/20 and my first impression is right at about the same rate. So I guess I'm fairly good at reading people.

I don't think so.
