  1. It sounds like you may have found some interesting things about yourself but I would warn on doing self psychological diagnosis. The exercise you mention is actually extremely hard for most of my clients.

    I have worked with people with aspergers and connecting to emotions is very difficult, however even an average guy often has a really hard time with this as well.

    The point of the exercise is actually to rework the neural pathways in your brain to start connecting emotions with memory recall. It can take a lot of practice before it becomes second nature.

    Good luck on your path and feel free to drop me a message if you have questions!

  2. > I’m fairly sure it’s mistaken to list lying as a detectable emotion (guilt or fear of detection are detectable, but the most rigorous studies seem to say that people rarely do much better than chance at detecting lies).


    The small numbers are a little worrying since that could mask various statistical artifacts, but other than that, I have no real reason to disbelieve the results.
