Hiya! I joined this forum solely for research purposes, but having had a look around I'm going to take the opportunity to ask about something quite personal, and something I've never really enquired about before, so please be kind!

Within the last five years or so I've found that I've been quite perceptive to the moods of others, in that I can sense it as soon as I get near them, even before speaking to them. Also, I can read people really well, for example I can feel if someone is untrustworthy, and I can spot liars a mile off!

I also get alot of strange feelings in places or certain rooms, this is something that has affected me all my life. For example, I find it very difficult to stay anywhere or keep the tears away in rooms where horrible things have happened like dungeons etc. I know that this could partly down to suggestion, but something in my gut tells me there's more to it.

Please tell me if I'm being totally stupid! Or, if you think there may be something more to it, where can I go for help and to find out more about it?

Thanks Smile

Selective intuition. You're probably good at reading non verbal communication. You may also 'count the hits and ignore the misses' this is called Confirmation bias.
It's not any kind os psychic ability (probably) it's you being good at reading people.

I also get alot of strange feelings in places or certain rooms, this is something that has affected me all my life. For example, I find it very difficult to stay anywhere or keep the tears away in rooms where horrible things have happened like dungeons etc.

Me too. It could be the decor, the furnishings, the smell or even something that has affected you before you even went into the room.
In the places where 'horrible things have happened' I take it that you had prior knowledge of the locations grisly history?.
For example - it would be hard to visit a place like Auschwitz and not have a mood dictated by it's history.

IMO you're not being stupid, you're being a human being. If you want to get a better more scientific insight into why people think they have psychic abilities go to:
