This drives my husband up the wall. And understandably so. I would certainly be frustrated from this brick wall I call my spouse, who cannot see, hear, feel, or smell me at times.
Its almost as though I have the ability, nay the SUPER POWER, to block out the senses!
This can be a huge advantage if used properly. This means easy sleeping on any form of public transportation (buses, trains, cars, airplanes, etc). Also, I can easily block out the annoying music that is played over the loud speaker at work by merely paying attention to the task at hand. You can focus on someone or something so fully, that you are literally giving it 100% of yourself.
This can also be a huge disadvantage. When you're paying so much attention to something else to the point that your boss thinks you are ignoring them. You very quickly can get lost in a conversation if you focus too hard on anything around you. You may not realize the faces you are making while watching movies which range from mimicking the puckered lips at that sweet make up scene, scowling when you know someone will ruin something, or even looking petrified because of the awkwardness of a particular scene.
In any case, this is my one super power. Does anyone else feel this way? Or am I alone in the world with a major case of zoning in rather than out?
It kind of makes me feel like Mowgli from Jungle Book
