I’ve recently been told in a formal job assessment that it is astounding how I can listen to another person so intently to the point with one person, that I am the only one besides her spouse, that can understand her. This served me well when I worked with developmentally handicapped folks too. Is that a “superpower”? If it is, it has it’s shadow side.
On the same assessment, people report that they were ignored if I was already engaged in conversation with someone else. I may have had a sense in a crowded room that someone else was close by, but certainly not that someone was wanting my attention. I am told this appeared rude, although it was acknowledged by my supervisor that they were aware that I was not trying to be rude.REPORT ABUSE
