Perceptiveness is clarity of insight. It is being observant of what is beneath the surface and looking for the deeper meaning. When we are perceptive, our understanding is intuitive and discerning. We slow down into awareness. We perceive the nuances of meaning in an idea or a situation We strive to see what is truly going on. We are thoughtful and considerate. Above all, we offer others the gift of feeling heard and understood. We are mirrors to their souls.
Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world. – Hans Margolius
