    I took Lark's first sentence as priority over the second.

    In those environments you might focus more on the knowledge about people than the experiential aspects of empathy. Those environments feel like a small room stuffed full of balloons squishing in on each other. That's the best metaphor I can use to describe the conflicting perspectives and egos each infringing on the others' boundaries. There is a lot of defensiveness, insecurity, ambition, dishonesty, etc. I think I pick up on the non-verbal cues, and even though most of the information is not useful because it is akin to knowing what shade of color each person "feels" so to speak, it is still too much information for me to process in real time. It has been a source of curiosity to me that it doesn't seem to help me navigate those environments, but it seems to have the opposite effect.

    I'm pretty sure I'd wind up like Ned Stark. I'd like to think I'd go more the Tyrion route, but if I'm being realistic, I'd get my damn head chopped off.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I'd go the Little Queen route. Get people to like me, win over the masses, and push the envelope with my position.. though not necessarily for evil.

    The king seems like it would be ok but the hand - not so sure. I don't think I could deal with the politics.

    Funny that Game of Thrones is the only TV show I watch.

    I should start watching it. I'm guess this is what @Lark is implying now?

    I did a quiz and found out that I was in House Tyrell, followed by House Lannister, and follow by House Stark

    Being the hand is far better because then you don't get blamed for all the problems and you don't have to make all of the decisions, but you still get royal benefits!
