I consider myself to be a person of keen insight. I have a compassionate nature, and I am a people watcher. I often hear more than is said. However, there are times I totally miss the mark. It is often when sarcasm is used and I don’t get the gist of the remark until much later.
There are times I trust in people rather than watching the patterns unfold before me. The point is I sometimes look back and wonder why I didn’t catch something as it was happening. I wonder if my seriousness and sensitivity override my humor or if my interpersonal skills are not as acute as I’d credited myself.
There are times I see the road before I or someone else walks it and rightfully predict the destination. Other times it is only after getting there I even have an inkling of how it happened. Hmmm…perhaps that’s the difference between insight and hindsight.
I suppose sometimes intuition or experience leads the way and other times it’s ego!
