I often notice things other people don't, especially various creatures in the fields on either side of the road when we're driving along. My husband of course is concentrating on his driving, but I see kestrels, foxes (even during the day!) a barn owl, muntjacs...
Just today I noticed the same little pied wagtail bird in the doorway of Morrisons supermarket. He's always there looking for scraps, but nobody seems to notice.
I also tend to make phrases out of car number plates (usually rude ones!) and I'm always the first to notice someone struggling in the supermarket to reach something on a high shelf.
I hear tiny sounds too.

My sister tells me this is a classic aspect of Aspergers, and that I'm on the autistic spectrum, which may well be true.

I am the Picky Proofreader (our motto - we aim to please other pedants) & pick up stray spaces & other typos. When I joined the Public Service after school in 1970 we had to sit a Clerical Selection Test & proofreading was part of it & I've done a lot of proofreading over the decades.

I'm putting off creating minutes as the minute taker always leaves spaces & LibreOffice shows them as blue squiggles (so they don't really count as proofreading) however my email doesn't so those spaces have to be found. Why the minute taker has to hit the spacebar several times when he also uses Return to get to a new paragraph is beyond me & as to why he sometimes puts a space before a full stop (period) is also beyond me ... (grumble, grumble)

Latest email from a friend who contributes articles to several newsletters only had 2 stray spaces & one missing capital! She got a gold star.

A few years back I was second proofreader on a book & found a few things the first proofreader missed. I hope no-one follows me & sees glaring mistakes!

I see humour in everything..

no matter how dark or despairing.

That is both strength and failing..

Nothing is off limits, no subject taboo..
It's a strain keeping a grim smile off my face,
and my mouth shut...

It is a constant awareness.....

I should have pursued a career in comedy,
but lacked all the necessary work ethic,
and other vital qualities such as arselicking networking, and talent..

At least some of my old school and student mates did go on
into sustained careers in media and entertainment [including politics..]...

Well, Sandra, proofreading your latest post was hardly an edifying experience. Another time, perhaps...

I like the idea of seeing humour in everything. I went to London yesterday to the funeral of an amazing old lady who was a teacher in the East End at the same time as me and who I used to drive to work in the seventies. She never married, so never had kids and all that, but she was as far removed from the image of the staid old spinster school ma'am as you could wish to encounter. We had so many laughs back then at the expense of so many people that I feel sort of gleefully guilty.... Not too many folks at the funeral, but a lot more at the celebration the next day, and I can't tell you how many laughs we've had. A tear or two as well...

This happens often when proofreading onscreen. When printed out locally the errors are more visible. When coming back from the printers, glaringly obvious.

My reasoning is that the more temporary/interim/changeable the less importance you put on the task of checking. It is psychological imperative. How final is the stage? The change of texture and subtle changes in the font certainly factor-in too.

Things I notice? minutia, detail. But then I am an engineer, and programmer, detail errors can be binary in their consequences.

Proofreading requires more grammatical &/or syntactical knowledge of language, not my forte! And certainly not on my own texts!

When communication is global, correcting grammar and spelling is a minor consideration. The name of the game is to be understood. I regard spelling or punctuation errors a minor inconvenience, the same as difficulities fully understanding Geordie or Nigerian English. In the days of globalism who sets the rules anyway? The greatest concentration of those using English as a first language is north america. Surely thay shouldset the rules!

When ressurecting some old talents to support veterans I noticed that I could not bring back a naivite' and a purity of confidence that were helpful in my youth. It is too easy for me to accept defeat now.

When I see self serving motives in people who believe they are entirely altruistic, I am more likely to address it, causing needless conflict.

These may be symptoms of crumudgeonitis.

I notice babies and small children more than most people do, and I assess the way they are being treated. My husband is the same.

We both notice birds. A friend said to us, "You two can see birds out of the backs of your heads!"

From time to time, I get hurt by loud noises, but funnily enough, almost nobody ever sees me flinching, closing my eyes or covering my ears. Odd, that.

Pride of place went to
Ain't it grand/To be bloomin' well dead.

I would hardly say I am unique in this but almost the instant I am in a theatre I have counted the seats in a row, looked how many rows and levels and so on, and formed a fair estimate of its capacity. If I go in a hotel, I do something similar. Or getting on a train It is hardly OCD but I have this 'numerical awareness' of where I am almost all the time.

I notice everything, everywhere, all the time, then forget to take the right turning, or even forget where I was supposed to be going. Trees, flowers, birds, clouds, hills. I'm rapidly learning how to spot speed cameras at three hundred paces. I have this irritating habit of suddenly pulling up and jumping out of the car to take a cloud photo. I also do DMcG's counting thing. I love it when someone criticises someone else's grammar or spelling then makes their own mistakes for me to pounce on. I absolutely hate it when people say things such as "razed to the ground," "he was at the epicentre...", "it grew to a resounding crescendo," "prior to" or "albeit". And I still don't know whether those commas should go inside or outside those speech marks. Please don't tell me. I love uncertainty.

I only notice what I need to see. When I'm driving, I will see the blue flashing lights of emergency vehicles way in the distance; the pedestrian using the crossing; the motor bike waiting to turn out of a side street. What I don't see is the car on its roof in the farmer's field. Why would I need to see it? It's not in my way!

If I need a pen, I search through the drawer where we keep odd bits of stationery. Eventually, I find the pen elsewhere and ask my wife where I might find a ruler, only to be told that it is in the drawer that I have only just been looking through ..... but I wasn't looking for a ruler at the time - I was looking for a pen. I didn't see the ruler.

Once, I was walking on a city street with friend, much more observant than me, when he suddenly stopped and said "Look! An owl". What owl? Where? It was right next to us, sitting on top of a telegraph pole. My eyes never ventured above street level. I like to walk in the coutry but by the time I see a bird, unless it hangs around, it's normally too late for me to identify it. Even when things are pointed out, if they are at all camouflaged, I struggle to see them.

We have quite a little collection of homeless people we try to help if we can, with a small offering of cash. My husband is a 'noticer' too, and one of these chaps is sometimes at the huge Tesco store we use, looking at the trolleys to find one with a pound coin in that a customer has forgotten to retrieve. So sad.
Just yesterday, my husband leapt out of our car (we had loaded up our goods and were about to leave) brandishing a tenner. He'd spotted 'our' skinny little man miles away, and ran right across the large car park to get to him. Luckily, the man is used to this smiling black chap, and was pleased to see him.
Meanwhile, I was busy looking at a rather plump old lady pushing a loaded trolley, and wondering if I was as fat as that or not...

As the primary driver of our twosome, I spend my time in the passenger seat practising what in convents is called "custody of the eyes". I notice anything and everything that moves, but my depth perception is wonky when I'm on that side of the car -- I'm blind in one eye and, therefore, lack the slightest schmick of stereoscopic vision.

Himself says I'm hyper-vigilant, which makes perfect sense. I think hyper-vigilance is a rather useful trait, if not particularly restful.

For the record, I have been driving since 1975 and have precisely three impacts on my record: I backed into a bulkhead in a parking garage (above the roofline until the critical last nano-second) and a stanchion beside a historical marker in Flanders (below the bottom edge of the back window), and I sideswiped the barrier around a tight roundabout on my first day of driving a clunky Vauxhall on the British side of the road.

Himself notices all cats and dogs. I'm better at noticing wildlife than he is, especially birds. He notices two kinds of birds: cardinals, and all the other ones.

Considering the trend for couples to live-stream themselves on the internet
having sex while driving,
There must be instances when they are so distracted they have crashed,
or distracted other drivers into having accidents...???

All broadcast live to worldwide viewers, as evidence...

If a couple were killed and emergency services had to photo and extract

Yeah, I notice spelling and grammar errors too... and various other things mentioned above: but because of years of philosophy and logic classes, I see the egregious flaws in reasoning so many use to defend or promote their ideas and attack the ideas of others. The problem is: It takes 5 times as long to explicate the basis for criticizing logical errors than to make them! Then the perpetrator simply dismisses my efforts with more of the same.

My other habit, because of years of working in grocery stores in high school & college is noticing prices and the changes over the years. It even began when I was in 1st grade in 1946! The pedal cart ice cream vendor came down our street in New Orleans, and fudgesicles and popsicles were 6¢. One day it was 7¢! I was insulted... and even though there was no way to raise the price without making it a penny more, the % of increase was huge! Now??? Well, I can barely stand grocery aisles with most of the prices ending in .99. I KNOW that a company calculates its costs and overhead and has a certain expectation of what it needs to make a fair profit. But if the retail price of an item needs to be, say, $1.73 to give them what they "need", you know it will usually be marked $1.99.
    Sometimes, if an item is normally around $3.50, a sale might be $2.99, but .99 is most often just a way to give them an extra edge and hide the fact because *shrug* people just expect most things to end in .99! And when I see a TV set for $999.99, they aren't gonna get ME to think..."Gee... it's under $1000." And car for sale at $29,999? Ha!
   I actually have the end of a roll of high-end paper towels from about 5 years ago that I saved when I 'noticed' that the new rolls were not as soft. Side-by-side comparison is clear.

.... well, even though I have wound down my business of woodworking and craft shows, I do still notice interesting piles of wood on the streets. "Gee, that looks like spalted Maple!" "No, Bill...you don't need it."


I also notice when sizes, volumes and quality diminish.

I proof-read for all of my family: my husband is moderately dyslexic but writes match reports for his rugby club every week, which go on the club website, so it's good to be accurate. He also wrote a book, and I checked all that, but was only shown the text, not the photo captions: after the book was published, there it was, sticking out like a sore thumb, under one of the pictures - Rhodydendrons! That's probably because that is how all of his family pronounce the name of said plant!
My kids too, although now well into adulthood, still ask me to read over anything important they have written: they went through school at a time when being over-strict with spelling, punctuation and grammar was frowned upon as suppressing their freedom of expression and creativity!
My mother was a teacher of English and made sure all my SPG was correct!

There are lots of things I don't notice - don't ask me what the price of gas is, even though I just filled up. However, I do have a degree of 'situational awareness' relating to my physical safety. Nobody's going to get the drop on me at an ATM, for example. They might rob me, but it won't be because I didn't see them coming. As a young man, I developed the habit of glancing around when I entered a bar, and identifying potential threats - and finding a seat against the wall. Etc., etc.

Hi, Senoufou. I've been bothered by your first post. I doubt if you are on the autism spectrum, because you post coherent and sociable posts here on the Mudcat. And you are interested in people, as shown by the attention you've paid to your husband's jokes.

As for noticing tiny sounds, that probably means you have good hearing. Since you probably never worked around noisy machinery and never put earphones on and blasted rock music, you have preserved your hearing.

I believe you used to teach school children. Now there's a job that will sharpen your hearing - a sudden sharp sound, no matter how soft, means that a pupil may be doing something naughty. I used to work in public libraries, and library staff develops the same skill. Trucks may roar by, babies may scream, but the sound of tearing paper galvanizes the staff.

I've been on the Building & Grounds Committee of two aged churches, and that's another thing that develops acuity. When there's a sharp crackle, I'm examining the ceiling.

Speaking of vicars with ...er...wind. Once during the Consecration of the Host, our vicar genuflected and let out the loudest fart I'd ever heard.

The parking garage at my HMO building has 7 'levels'... 2 below the entry or 'ground' level, and 4 above. There is a elevator/lift and also a set of stairs for those who choose exercise. It can be confusing when you park partway up the curved ramp between stairway/elevator entrances, so inside each door to the stairs, there is a sign reminding you,,"Remember you are parked on Level 2." or 3.. or lower level 1... whatever.
   This very nice... but if you walk down from, say, level 2 or 3 to the door that leads out to the path to the main building, there is a sign saying "Remember, you are parked on Level Ground."... which sounds a bit odd to begin with, but also is totally useless, as you did NOT park on the ground level. If you see the sign at all, it means you arrived there FROM some other level or are entering the stairs to walk TO some other level.
   Once you ignore this and walk up or down, the nice signs will tell you when you have arrived at the relevant door.

This is the sort of detail I notice. There is no use bring it to the attention of the management, as they would just say... "Oh, you know what it means!" and yes, I do.... but had I been in charge of signs, that one would merely say "Ground Level" to tell walkers they are where they need to be.
Oh well....

One glaringly obvious one, was more about poor judgement but filled with scientific boffins.

A TV prog about a cemetery (outwith the churchyard) full of skeletons from specific eras. These eras were charcterised by poor harvest, volcanoes etc.

At such times, poor people would have ate whatever was available, and rye for breadmaking that had been stored too long would be raided. Rye contains ergot (think LSD) and if left the fungus grows. The "trip" that ensues would have made those people look like demons possessed. In those days they would be poor, outcast and considered unholy. Even if they survived (& tainted) they would not ultimately been buried in a churchyard.

Yet the boffins never hinted at the distinct possibility. They concluded "unknown"!
