I think this is a important observation. I think social radar (and agree with the consensus that woman's is generally superior to men.) is often overly sensitive and picks up a lot of false positives. It is like when you go through the airport security and the metal detector are turned up to a super sensitive level so that even a couple of nickels in your pockets sets them off. Sure you keep the boxcutters of the flights, but you also cause a zillion folks to angst about missing there flight because of the delays.

A very short summary of methods of reading human body language.
I read an introductory article in Discover magazine years ago, got curious as usual , and did some extensive reading about this area of human behavioral research. It came in really handy with dealing with difficult and detecting insincere people at w*rk.
Read an article, then go out in public and observe people. You'll see what I mean.
