Re: Can I think that someone spoke as if he/she was mad and not really be?

Yes, I think so too, we get a lot of negativity;
also you might be particularly attuned and empathetic ( sorry i am not sure if those are actual words!)

I'm sensitive to tones of voice,
although i'm sometimes wrong and someone is just tired, often i can tell if something is "off". This used to drive my mom crazy. she would try to sound chipper and bright on the phone but I always knew

the downside of this is assuming people are angry with you when they aren't, but it's an advantage at work for example (dont bother X with that right now, it can wait, they are having a bad day ), and well the occasion just to say a kind word when someone may need it.
