I was surprised my score was so high on this test. Especially
because it often feels more like I am hyper-aware of people
rather than not so aware. But sometimes it comes off the same
or leads to similar discomforts. One on one I click if I click
at all very deeply with other people. In many social situations
though it is like I am always on the wrong channel. I see the
level with some difficulty where the social stuff is going on as
far as most people are concerned. But I keep seeing all the
levels and stuff beneath that. It is sometimes quite painful to
see the undercurrents and then see the level of the ice where
most people are holding themselves and skating about socially.
When I was younger it was worse. I had to learn to turn down
the gain on the antenna.
