Whether it's a close friend or a stranger, do you find it hard to read a person's intentions?
It's not so hard if you spend some time with that person, but it's almost impossible if you meet the person and spend hour or two chatting.
some people are easy to read some less, but if you remove your emotions and replay the tape of your encounters, you have a good chance to know what they want. It is more about the things done and silences, than about what they say.
Most of the time it is easy to guess someone's intentions. What is difficult is giving someone the choice and the chance to do what's right or the benefit of the doubt when their intentions seem bad.
If it is a stranger it is difficult. I need to talk to someone for a while before understanding them a bit better. Asking questions helps. If it is a close friend, someone I trust, then I should know their character and whether or not they are being truthful.
No, its not so hard. If you will try and keep your eyes keen, you would be able to read. Feeling any unusual intentions will dignify his mind. Whether its a friend or foe we should always maintain a distance which is not sharing any personal or other information to maintain self priority.
There are times when I cannot see a person's face but I can sense their intent.
