I don't think I could tolerate therapy with someone I couldn't "see" in that way. It's too important to me to know someone and how they normally feel and even the teeniest change in how they feel. I can feel when he leans backward mentally even if he stays neutral in his voice. Or when he crosses his arms mentally even if his voice stays calm and reasonable.

He's used to my framing my impressions in terms of movements he's not even making. Or of me informing him when he's upset or more cheerful than usual before I even sit down. And he recognizes that I'm nearly always right in my impressions.

Sometimes I meet people who have nothing visible behind their surfaces. It makes me very very nervous. How can you trust someone you can only see with your eyes and hear with your ears?
