Do you pick up on the details everyone else misses?

Learning how to read people and certain situations is a skill that many of us have, and so many more of us do not. Understanding people in and of itself is not always easy, especially if you don't know how to read a person's emotions or body language.

As an evolutionary trait, mankind has a built-in radar that picks up on the subtle details of interactions, telling us if we should high-tail it out of there or that it's safe to stick around. This is known as intuition. Intuition comes in many forms, the basic of which includes knowing something to be true or important in your gut.

Of course, you can always sharpen your intuition by trusting in it more often, but you can reach new heights by learning a bit of psychology and how the human mind actually works. This can help you in understanding people.

Maybe you've heard that women tend to be more capable of reading people's emotions, gestures and body language. They are widely regarded as being more attuned to emotions, as well as what other people are feeling. So, they naturally get the title of being more emotionally intelligent than men.

If you're a man, do not fret. While men may not be held in such high regards when it comes to emotions — especially since men are often taught not to express outward emotion or that expressing feelings is a sign of weakness — there are plenty of men who possess strong emotional intelligence and awareness.

Are you the person who always seems to pick up on the signs and details that everyone else misses? If you fancy yourself as someone who is more emotionally intelligent than the average person, you can try your hand at the quiz below. It will tell you exactly how good you are at understanding the complex dynamics of human interaction, and how often you see situations from the psychological perspective.
