There is no instruction manual for constructing a human being. The sooner you learn to accept that fact, the closer to human you will become.

NO WAY

SHAI WAS MY FAVOURITE

She was so cool and mystical and she gave me a little crystal gift ;_; how could she be evil.

Two of my characters were just utterly intrigued by her.

Oof.

Also, re: Zonin. Still my favourite PK. I wondered why the soldiers were so wary to get involved. So hey, thanks for that. :V

If you've been invited to a small party on this date, it's supposed to kick off at 8 p.m. server.

I think this PARTIALLY plays into the arrogance of "That server really liked me!" when its just their job. People read the server's face, body language, and tone as a happy, interested party who wants to ensure you are having a good time. That sounds like an attractive mate, so clearly they're into you.

Some people can read the signals 100% correctly, and have no clue about the intention. I want you to think I'm friendly and into you, because you're likely to leave a bigger tip than if I'm a robot-jerk.

No worries, man!

I've already consigned you and your family to the gulag, capitalist pig.

But, uh, in seriousness, sorry for the call-out. That was a dick move.

There's also considering people's individual quirks when it comes to how they express themselves. The tells for anxiety/aggression/deception/attraction also have some overlap. Now I know what normies mean when they say that people are hard to read or give off mixed signals.

There's an unfortunate trend, when it comes to reading body language, that as soon as someone throws off a deceptive gesture, they're "caught" in some bald-faced lie.

Joe Navarro has said numerous times that you need to cluster the indicators. Was it 3 deceptions in an hour long chat? Were they right after one another? And even then, are they lying about what they're saying, are they unconfident because THEY don't know if its the truth, or are they using deceptive body language because they are uncomfortable in the conversation?

Its a lot.
