We also play a game sometimes when we're stuck in traffic, by pretending that we're in a disaster situation with the people in the cars around us, and we'll say things like "that's the guy who will try and steal everyone's food," or "she'd be the hysterical one" or "she'd be the mother figure," etc. Silly.

All the time. I went to a museum recently by myself and left my camera at home. The exhibits were interesting, but it was a whole new experience not having someone there with me and not taking pictures that I don't really look at anyway. It was fun observing others' reactions to the artwork, and seeing who was there for what; the people who looked like they were there for a school project, the people posing by the displays, the ones telling their friends more than they probably wanted to know about the painting that they were looking at, and so on. This is fun to do in bars and bookstores, too. Supermarkets, not so much, because I just want to get in and get out!

Interesting, I like to people watch, but I never put that together with being told by others that I'm good at reading people/situations.

People watching is practically a hobby of mine. It's fascinating how different people are. Would rather watch them than talk to most of them.

I used to watch/observe people much more when I was younger and had more time. I didn't mind waiting for people in a public place as long there were other people around as observing others was always an interesting way to pass the time. (One can't really be bored if there are lots of people around to observe.) Human nature can be quite interesting when observing people going about their business in natural settings.
