My detector, Carol, is actually quite good. Like you I read situations and speak up. Actually, I see through people and very quickly am able to touch the core of their hidden agenda. People don’t always like it and consequently, people don’t always like me. I’m a Sabra (Israeli born) and like the fruit prickly on the outside, but sweet within.
My business is called Cut the Crap Solutions. I get to the essence of the problem of people’s Info-Product and tell them “What could be”. Some love it. Others immediately run for their lives. The truth frightens them.
Hope your canary is doing well and chirping you a cheerful tune. HUGS <3
I like fruit that way, too. I’m that way. 😉 But you probably figured that out. Glad to meet you!
My 12 year old son is sometimes amazed at my “bullshit ” detector!
This cracked me up, Melissa! I’ll bet he is!
The older I get, the better my bullshit detector is. It’s on high alert most of the time.
If you’re a mom, it’s a survival tactic!
Mine is so much stronger as i take more time to be centred within and at peace.
That’s such a good point. We can access it so much more easily when we are centered.
I think with maturity we gain experience that enables us to see through bullshitters.Its called Experience of life.
You’re right about that.
I think I was always good at detecting bullshit but thought I was being uncharitable! As I’ve got older, I’ve become quite BS-intolerant and not afraid to speak my mind.
That’s a strength in my book.
I’ve learned to watch where I step. And yes, I can detect it every time! 🙂
I know where you learned it, too!
I’m pretty sure that I annoy my friends on Facebook. They post wild claims and I read them and think, “Well….that doesn’t sound right.” So I look it up on Snopes and, about 90% of the time, I discover that it’s either bullshit or partially bullshit.
It’s amazing to me how often people resent it. I’ve thanked people for calling me on it when I post something dubious.
Ilove when people respond “I didn’t have time to look it up.”
I was taught to trust first, ask questions later. As I get older I have reversed that order. Go with my gut, recognize the BS and if I am proven wrong – then trust. I think many of us struggle with believing the BS detector as we want to believe what we are told, our faith in our fellow man. However, it has got me into a lot of trouble because I trust too easy. I was also taught not to judge — another aspect of this concept. If we judge too quickly, based on our BS detector, we tend to taint the real truth.
Personally, I think the best BS detectors are 4 legged creatures, my dogs. They don’t care what people think of them and will let you know when they don’t trust you.
Because they listen to intuition!
Oh yes, my detector does a good work too, but it probably may not be as good as yours
My UBC Day 6 Post
It might be, though.
Superb Carol. I’ve had a lifetime of honing it. Thank you for asking.
Yeah, I feel like we have much in common. 😉
My family calls me evil because I predicted my brothers death, a house fire and most pregnancies and death.
I try not to share with them anymore unless I feel strongly about changing the outcome
2 days before 9/11 I shared a dream with my family and coworkers of planes exploding all over the country and not being able to locate all of my family and friends.
My BS detecter is pretty good.
I think your BS detector is the least of your talents!
I have a terrible BS detector unfortunately. My husband’s is very finely tuned however, so I rely on his opinion!
actually it is good to detect the BS and speak your mind!
haha that’s quite an interesting idea and I do have a sense that something might go wrong cum there shall soon be light at the end of the tunnel. Call it sixth sense or bullshit detector, it works, I agree.
