Are you observant?

Do have the special ability to look things to its details? Are the things and happenings around you immediately get your attention? Sometimes, being observant becomes an advantage on us. It makes us aware of the bits and pieces happening around us. .. There are times when it becomes a disadvantage on us especially if those things annoy us. Are you observant?

hi i believe i am observant coz i think i get a lot by looking here and there, though i don't like to stalk or do things like that... but with people moving here and there, all the clouds moving as in a parade, i am able to observe many small things in nature where people don't tend to, mostly coz they are busy i guess, but i really love to observe nature and appreciate it's beauty, i am also good on the road i am able to see any incoming vehicle and respond to it accordingly, i don't like to boast but i believe i have a decent spacial coordination ability and am able to understand the kind of movements the moving objects have...

Oh yes, I'd been observant while riding in a bus or jeepney. I can sense persons with bad intentions. Thru the movement of their eyes and gestures with one another I can identify pickpockets and bag slashers. One time I did'nt keep my eyes away from a company of three whom were eyeing an old woman with her bag being moved to be near their sides and when I stared to what their doing, they didn't succeed but I was quite afraid when all of them got anger looks at me so I have to get off the jeepney infront of a police station to be safe. Though I made a stop on that particular bad activity but the disadvantage they seem to get back at me, shuld am not that observant.

I have the privilege to living with a master observer. He notices the world from another perspective than I do, I am a more intuitive person and often miss the little fine edges of life.

I'm very observant. I can focus on more than one happening at a time when in a room of people. I might not pay as much attention to detail when looking at an item. Just spent a week out of state with our grandkids. Was very observant how our daughter and her husband interacted with the children since I'm ot around them very often.

Yes, I am a keen observer and observe things fast and remember them too. As you say it can be both risky and helpful at times and depends on the incident which we are watching.
