I wish it were a skill that had such wide applications. :) I pick up on other people's reactions, but lacking knowledge about them I'm not really able to react appropriately. So it's really only people I know very very well that it's any use. In fact, I think my husband has the benefit in his complete lack of awareness of emotional currents in a room. He doesn't get upset by other people's reactions and flounder about as I do.

And of course in therapy I sprout sensors all over my skin. :) I'm soooo in tune to everything he does.

It really does take two in therapy. Two attuned people in the dance of therapy. My therapist doesn't actually yawn. Visibly, his only sign of sleepiness is heavy liddedness. But it's enormously obvious in the energy of the room. And I need him to really be fully present.

Mind you, if he wasn't usually present and engaged, I wouldn't notice when he wasn't. :) It's something he usually does well.

Actually, I've been thinking of all the things he really does do well. It's more than I usually give him credit for. He might not be good at the big insight (and not especially good at the little ones) but he has a lot of skills that aren't as obvious.
