Seeing the invisible

I have written a lot about how sociopaths don't really have magic abilities to read people's minds or predict the future, that we just have a unique perspective that allows us to see things that other people don't (and possibly see other things less well). I thought this NY Times video illustrated this concept well:



How useful might it be to see the world this way? It just depends. Similar to a sociopath. Sometimes it is no advantage at all. Other times it could be a disadvantage. But it definitely would impact the way you see the world, to be constantly aware of these things that remain virtually hidden to everyone else. Maybe it would seem a little isolating. Maybe it would make it difficult for you to trust other people's reality, because it seems incomplete compared to yours. Maybe you eventually learn to just keep these observations to yourself. Or maybe you learn to exploit them. But you just have different options than other people do.

  6. This video is about things the eye can't see. We, lurking empaths like me, see what we want to see or what life has tought us to look for (eg from bad experience). And we are probably unconciuos about the process.
    You sociopaths, because your dead and unbiased, see what actually is there to see. And its there for anyone whos intrested, if empaths wasn't so busy living.
    For you that comes naturally. We empaths have to learn to take a step back. A good empath shrink can do that. But only after years of training.
    Its my belief that you sociopaths see what is there to see...but doesnt pick up what the eye cant see.
