That is very interesting.

I think I have experienced what that paper described...empathic abilities that are maladaptive. It happens in my marriage all the time...when my husband says one thing but I know that he is really thinking something else! ;-)

I get mad because I know what's really behind what he's saying, even though he is trying hard not to say it.

I'm only partially making light of the paper...because I really do think that being empathic can be a double-edged sword.


I think your example is excellent. You may pick up subtleties related to things you're husband would rather not speak about or even things he's unaware of. However, whether that is maladaptive is probably a matter which chair you're sitting in at the time
