Unfortunately I’ve never really noticed whether I’ve been any good at paying attention to the signs that may point to someone else’s happiness or unhappiness. I can understand that there are ways someone can recognize another’s mood up to a certain point, through his gestures, facial expressions, tones of voice and other mannerisms. Perhaps I’ve simply never been any good at figuring those kinds of things out though. At the very least I’ve most certainly never really paid a significant kind or degree of attention to anything of that nature. If it’s not at least relatively obvious then I shouldn’t suppose I can be expected to recognize it. A lot of times someone will try, often unsuccessfully, to hide his true emotions. That may be a part of my problem. Confusing signals can lead to frustration.
