Super! That's a great attitude to have; I wish more folks did.

There've been too times when I could just "look" at something and get
to the heart of the matter, or be able to respond to a question that
a person was just getting ready to ask. It's a "talent" that has
served me well my entire life and really came in handy understanding
and fixing computer, network and other problems at work that others
hadn't even characterized yet. "Reading between the lines" of what
someone has written is associated with that ability -- perhaps it's
just the way I'm "wired" to communicate or akin to how investigators
can "sense" when a person is telling the truth or not though I've
never had any training in that regards. Dunno.
I need to re-read the WIRED article again; I only skimmed it due to
time but it was clear there were some salient points being made.
