Well.... are you? I am. I'm way too observant, and it can actually lead to feelings of self guilt, I'm just naturally curious... For example, just by sitting in the break room, and when I leave work I know about where 90% of the people live, their relationships, favorite food, shows, music, and.... sex positions... But then I get really awkward when someone asks "hey where does Jessica live?" and since no one knows, I chime in with "indian river plantation next to that crappy mcdonalds" "umm do you even know Jessica?" "no... :| " WORD WEIRD. So it's like... blargh. Though a lot fo times I just feel like an extrovert and try to make everyone interact, most of the time I'm content eating my food in the corner and listening to all of the conversations... I don't see it as being nosy, I just like to keep tabs on everything.... So to end that "anecdote," as @Melkor would put it, are you nosy? By nature, or purposefully? Are you proud of your observant nature, or ashamed? I for one am both proud, and ashamed. I noticed stuff no one else does, but then I feel guilty when I know the inner workings of said relationship between two people, when I don't even really know either party.
