You Are a Lynx

You are a quiet observer of the world around you. Your wisdom comes from listening carefully.
You’ve always been extra sensitive and aware. And it’s made it difficult for you to fit in.

You see past people’s outward personas. You are able to penetrate a stranger’s soul.
What you’ve learned about people is both beautiful and ugly. And you keep these secrets to yourself.
