    I do it to myself all the time, gets a bit wearing if I'm honest. I'm not remotely perceptive enough to do it to other people though.

    Yes, I use the word psychoanalysis informally. To mean generally analysing peoples behaviour etc. Like when people call you psychopath but you dont fit the criteria.

    To what extent do you read people?
    You shouldn't use the word psychoanalysis. You read body language, just like everyone else who has a good social life. Without it, you would be seen as an outcast, a weirdo by others.

    Every normal human does it. They just don't realise they do it, as its rather innate due to our social way of life.

    I would say few here don't know how to read basic body-language, but when I look in this forum and see all the "I have no friends..." threads being started...

    Ah, good for you! Your psychology degree will be very useful being a regular Dr.

    I am seen as an outcast and a weirdo.

    I don't mean reading body language because usually what a person is thinking or whatever. I look at what a person says and in what situation or what choices a person makes. So I dont know what word would be suitable.

    Sorry, I'm not using that word in its actual professional defination.

    I'm using it as an informal term for interpreting speech and decisions of a person.

    It is very wearing to do it to yourself. I avoid that. I do it when I have been with someone for a long time and have nothing better to do.

    You over-analyze people to the point you freak them out then.

    Stop doing it.

    Do you ever psychoanalyse people? I do, alot. It's fun. It's beneficial too because it makes you more tolerant. I give diagnosises(sp?) too. Just in my head not to the face because most people dont really care unless you can treat.



    You guys are so unfuN!
    I can't stop it...........its not cool because you can just see through peoples crap

    I don't tend to psychoanalyse people, that's sort of weird. I do like freaking people the **** out with Freud's theory though, and watching them squirm uncomfortably when you talk about the parents is pretty funny.

    Because, if you know your sad you might not work properly.
