Since Monday I have received more than a dozen phone calls and at least twice as many texts from Daughter detailing her observations of her cats’ behaviors and interactions. She is a really good observer of minute interactions, and she tells me about them in great detail. She has applied interventions for improving the acceptance of the kitten by the older cat based on her observations. Our son is equally good at this. Husband and I do it for a living. I think this is really weird.
There must be some genetic thing going on here. Two psychologists, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, and Social Worker in one family? I wish I knew what gene it was. The “Keen Observer” gene? The “I Can’t Abide Family Discord” gene? The “Human Behavior is Fascinating ” gene? The “I’m Just Nosy” gene?
How are you similar and dissimilar to your family members? What runs in your family?
