Hm, I seem to have deleted someone's name here. Sorry if I'm misquoting.

I can tell when I go into a house where people do not get along well. I
attribute this to a keen sense of smell, thusly:

-- emotions are the result of chemical reactions.
-- certain chemicals are excreted through the skin by sweat, such as adrenaline.
-- the chemicals become airborne and affix themselves to the furnishings and
walls, ceiling and carpets.
-- the inhabitants of the house may be more likely to fight with these
scents lingering, and so perpetuate this cycle.
-- in walk I, and like a hunted animal I am on my guard...

Seems to explain, more or less to me anyway, how I can often read a person
upon the first meeting -- I am not usually fooled by initial appearances,
almost always get it right. It has bothered more than one person that I
seem to know everything about them just by being around for a few minutes.
(Also, I am quite intuitive and listen well.)
