Me too. I enjoy watching people, and like to observe them and the way they talk, move, or what they do. And I like to learn or understand from other people's emotions. How they react to certain events or happenings. Sometimes, I just sit on a corner of the classroom and watch my classmates. Well, i believe I have this "ability" to understand other people's emotions. And i really try my best to understand them so that I will not be able to judge them wrongly.

yeah thanks... and i would love to see you mylot people, and watch you closely? hehe! well, they say personalities over the internet differ on the real world. Maybe what you in are mylot is a bit different from your personality outside the internet. I am not saying we are pretending to be somebody else when we are in the internet but, its just that maybe an inner character within us may go out. So much for that... Dont the mylot community have an "eyeball" like the lotters would meet somewhere, maybe for a drink, some party, and discuss things, or just sit around.. I think that would be fun... lol

Hello again caly! That would be really nice a get together for all my lotters in different countries. We will have a lot more things to discuss. The eyes can be judgemental that's why people tend to be different in person. I do believe that I am the same in person and here. I have no use not being true to myself or live a life of illusion here in mylot. It wouldn't be as much fun as I want it to be. Why would I not reveal my true self when I love who I am. hehehe Cheers! Sheena

I don't have that much leisure time anymore, but often when traveling I will just sit in a public place and people watch. It's amazing how many things that you are able to see that's different about other people. Sometimes you can almost feel the joy, happiness or sadness by just observing people.

OH yes relundad! You can probably tell what they do based on how they dress up sometimes. You can tell if they're happy or sad or in a deep thought. Maybe next time I'll bring a pen and paper handy and write a story based on what I see and use my imagination. hehehe

I love people watching it is amazing sometimes what you see too! You also can tell sometimes tell things about the people, sometimes how they are feeling, if they are deep in thought. Sometimes by the way thet are dressed you can kinda figure out what they do for a living. I just think it is really interesting to watch people, I watch them wherever I get a chance.

I enjoy this a LOT sheena and used to spend hours in the mall just sitting there and watching people all around me. I find it very entertaining as well and it is amazing what you can learn about people in general from doing this. I would also try to imagine what their lives were like, what they did for a living and things like that as well.

Hello James! I can imagine that you love people watching since your personality is shining thru and you always know what to say to a certain topic. As I have mentioned in my previous replies you are an observer. I was once sitting in a park after my days work was done just comtemplating an observing people. I saw this old couple jogging. They were pretty old and I can tell they live nearby. I couldn't help but admire them. They look happy to me. I couldn't help it but jog with them in my high heel shoes and tell them how wonderful they look. they said they were married in their 20's and still together now and they are enjoying their lives. In a coffee shop, I admire older people who gets together for a chat over coffe. some they come in groups. Mainly because when I get old, I still want to enjoy my coffee outdoors with friends. Thank you James, Sheena

Sometime I like people watching. I am watching now some city workers working, I heard some noise and looked outside and saw this man standing in the road and a very large bull dozier or back hoe. I don't know what this thing is. Any way there is a water leak across the street. And someone notified the city, they sent the workers out. It really wasn't a leak it was pouring out. The gentleman said they have to come out on an emergency.

Not really, mostly because I don't want people to think I'm being nosy. What you described doesn't sound nosy, but let me use my mom as an example. We'll be in a restaurant, and a table next to us might have a couple sitting there. They are talking and sharing a laugh. Then I look at my mom and she's staring at the couple and laughing too. If the couple happened to look over, they are going to see my mom staring at them, and sharing the joke that was between the two of them. That is a pretty harmless example, but my mom sometimes just looks at people and listens to their conversation. It could be about something totally benign, but she'll listen in anyway. And really it is because she finds what they are talking about interesting. When someone is talking about burping babies, she doesn't bother listening. But when it is say about the stock market... Sure, a person can't help overhearing things, but I don't want them to catch her staring! lol

Hi ambiepam! Nice to hear from you again. I never listened to peoples conversation. I just do people watching. I have tried being listened to when me and my international friends were talking about a controversial topic in a coffee shop the young girl who was sitting at the next table and another guy from another table were pretending to use their cellphones but they're ears were listening. We laughed about it though because the topic is quite educational and controversial. And our table was quite reactive towards the discussions.

Hhahaha. that was really funny. It can be a blooper. hehehe. I've watch those that just met for the first time, maybe they got to know each other on line or thru text and knew it from there body language. It makes me smile and say silly people they're not a match physically but hey it made me smile.
