Read her mind, read her face. What's the difference if it achieves the same result? Psychology is not a precise science. Part of being a psychologist is understanding that it takes time to start to understand any individual no matter how smart you are. Why? You can't read minds. You cannot do what Kiba is doing. It's physically impossible because Kiba is finding information where there is no information to find.
Regardless, in the future my posts will be shorter because quite bluntly Julia is going to start fighting for the privacy Kiba just stole from her, and as such I will not display information she has gone out of her way to conceal.
I guess I'm not going to be able to explain it the way I'm intending to. Kiba is wise, the knd of person who might predict people's next moves base on their actions and reactions. Like he took three years of psychology class at school.
I can't really explain it any better than this. With his backstory, he learned quite a lot about the psychology of people and pokemon. I didn't want to spoil this to anyone early, but I feel like it might help explain a bit... Instead of going along with a family, starting his life with adventure as a new trainer, etc. etc., he grew up with no parents. Eventually he ended up making his way to Iron Island in Sinnoh, where a group of Lucario had taught him how to live, and he lived on that island for so long that he lost the ability to talk with normal people, which is why he often say awkward or unfitting things. He also became very lonely, because he could talk to the Lucario group (since they speak telepathically), but even then it wasn't the same as talking to people. he spent most of his life watching and listening, rather than speaking. So you could say he has the mind or focus of a Lucario, but he can't really read minds. Does this make more sense? Because I don't think I'll get any farther than that.
Though, I'm sure Julia could very well assume that he had read her mind somehow, and I'm sure she has every reason to get mad. Kiba will probably see that he once again ticked her off and just kinda back off and apologize again. He can be rather heroic and protective of people at times, but other times he usually backs down and tries to avoid conflict by simply apologizing. I think it makes him an interesting character as far as an outcast from society can get.
Luckily, there's more to his story that I haven't spoiled yet. And also, there's a reason his eyes seem to glow, because they actually do sometimes. Though I'm not ready to go spoiling everything just yet.
The eyes only show emotion too... It takes actual wisdom to translate emotion into specifics, something Kiba doesn't have on strangers. Regardless, if you want that to e his power it's not my business, but Julia will not be happy regardless of the reasoning.
Gah... I'm not even sure how to respond to that... It's hard for me to put what I'm thinking into words with certain things like this. There is a degree of understanding that can be found, especially in the eyes (If you've ever hear that phrase, "Eyes are gateways to the soul", it's very accurate). While he can't figure out the question directly, Kiba somewhat understands that Julia was wondering if he felt the same way about it. I guess another determining factor might be how easy a specific person is to read. With those who mask their emotions, or try to remain entirely blankfaced the whole time, it would be much harder. Julia didn't seem like she would be the kind who hid her emotions that well, so that's the way I interpreted how much Kiba would understand. On top of that, it seems almost normal in a conversation when someone says "x is gross", for the other person to agree and say "You're right, I hate x too."
Make any more sense? :/ I'm trying to form words out of this. My communication skills are fairly low.
Um... Facial expressions show emotions, not actual thoughts and concepts. If you've ever seen my posts in Legendary Rebels, which I doubt because why would you have, I play Mesprit there and she is actually crippled as far as mind reading goes because she can only read emotions. Thus, she can tell when a person is annoyed with her or sad but she cannot specifically tell why, only attempt to guess based on what she knows about a person and what she visually observes.
It's not reading minds as much as it is, well reading facial expressions and body movements. I made him a very perceptive character in that sense. He can somewhat understand his pokemon with that ability. For example, when mentioning being sticky I'd imagine Julia having a bit of a grossed expression, then while wondering if Kiba felt the same way, there would be a questioning kind of look in her eyes.
Does this make any sense, or do I just sound like a dingus?
Does Kiba often read people's minds? Because he just answered several questions Julia never voiced. If you keep your post as is I warn you that she will be very put off. Reading minds is extremely rude, y'know!~
