Understanding Psychology with low Emotional Intelligence

It’s strange how I was watching a talk by Tony Attwood yesterday morning, where he mentioned how Aspies make great psychologists, and later I found myself wondering how my emotional intelligence can be so low, yet I’m so good at recognising behaviour in others when I’m viewing them from the outside. It’s so frustrating that I feel very vulnerable to abusive relationships and toxic friendships, but I have enough knowledge of psychology and human behaviour to point out patterns of abuse, and to help someone else rebuild their life after ending an emotionally abusive relationship.
