Anything in particular you look for? I would also say that women are then more lucky then people. Or perhaps not. Aren't you having a conversation, should you then be absent minded?
I tend to photograph myself before I go out. And it's rather technical, sideview, frontview and isometric view. There could or could not be a detailed view. This is documentation to find relations toward the events during the night.
When driving a car, and sometimes when walking I tend to use my phone as a tape recorder and practice voices. I think the voice is far more important then one realize. And I am not satisfied with the one I have developed. If someone saw this, I would presume they thought I was mad.
And etc. It's the same with walking, body language etc, I try to improve, invent or copy more advanced ways to do so. Sometimes this is a complete failure. But overall, I think I learn. And it makes me more focused, more there, as I try to to figure out cause and effect, emotional reactions, in short what is happening. Unfortunately I'm just as often not there mentally, and is prone to say, ehh? will you say again? So there is not consistency in all of this.
Also, the classic, "what are you smiling off?". Or people just smiling back, making me all confused. What happens is that I'm smiling off something in my head, and they think I'm smiling at them. And then I, as I'm low on Fe, I wonder why they smile at me. And then they mirror my lack of smile, and turns sour. And the whole cascade of events is just because I amused myself. And then I may smile again, as I think the whole situation is absurd.
But these things are just quirks. Stuff I do to amuse myself and perhaps learn a thing or two. When I stop to talk to people, I think they find me to be just like them. I think I normalize and adhere to shared principles of interaction (within reason, no silly stuff, like gossip and things like that, I'll raise an eyebrow at that, unless of course the gossip is really interesting
